tess-waist-belt_012509We asked: Would you wear Wide Belts?

You said:  Yes to Wide Belts, with a 72% to 28% vote.

Style tip? Wide belts definitely make a statement.  And while they can help define your waistline, they can also draw attention to a thick middle.  But overall, we think that wide belts have more plusses than minuses.  As for how to wear a wide belt, here’s a rule of thumb: the more ornate the design of the belt, the simpler the outfit needs to be.  For colder months, We love pairing a statement belt with a simple sweaterdress and a pair of boots.  As simple as it is chic.  

Next question: Tights are a cold weather staple, whether they’re for an extra layer of warmth under pants or to protect your legs from the cold under skirts.  Solid colored plain tights are standard, but what do you think about textured tights?  Tell us, would you wear Textured Tights?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Excellent advice on wide-belt wearage. They can be tricky!

    I adore textured tights, but find them to be a bit difficult to deploy. Solids are easier, but textures are more fun.

    i have a thick waist, and i look horrible in skinny belts. but with wide belts i feel it is actually able to hide my waist better. as for textured tights, i have a pair of gray ones i bought in express last year, and it matches everything. a little texture adds more fun to an outfit, so i say it’s a win for both these items!

    I love seeing ladies in wide belts. Nothing is more exciting.
    Hope this will encourage gals to see wide belts in a positive light.
