HOW TO BUCKLE UP
Revealing how, and how not to, wear a belt this season
The sight of Carol Vorderman tottering to dinner last week wearing one of her signature spray-on dresses raised even more eyebrows than usual.
Her style crime? Accessorising with a tight belt that caused her cleavage to overflow — resulting in a sausage-like effect.
Take note, Carol, a belt can make or break an outfit. Here, we reveal how to buckle-up properly...
WEAR A WIDE BELT TOO HIGH
Pippa Middleton makes a fashion faux pas by wearing too much tan — dress, bag, boots and belt. Keep shoes neutral to make other accessories stand out.
This 5in-deep black belt with a massive buckle might cinch in Carol Vorderman’s waist, but it’s also doubling as a push-up bra by sitting too close to her bust.
The benefits of Twiggy’s belt are obscured by her draped jacket. Make sure you can see a cinched-in waist.
A bold printed dress, plus a very low V-neck and a big elaborate belt are all too much on Alesha Dixon. To shine, keep it simple.
A tiny waist can come at too high a price. As Eva Longoria proves, even the slimmest celebrity can suffer the dreaded overhang.
CREATE CURVES FOR GLAMOUR
JAZZ UP AN OUTFIT
Floor-length maxi gowns can look column-like. Take a tip from Keira Knightley and use a smart black satin belt to add shape, while keeping it elegantly simple.
Jazz up an outfit Kate Middleton knows how to work a belt. If the outfit is simple, like this grey Amanda Wakeley shift, bring it to life with an elaborate belt. The High Street has plenty.
USE BLACK TO ADD DEFINITION
WEAR A POP OF COLOUR
STICK TO THE SAME TONE
Amanda Holden perfects her hourglass silhouette with this patent black belt that is instantly slimming.
Claire Danes’s skinny red belt adds a brilliant splash of colour to this otherwise monochrome outfit.
Wearing the same shade as your dress and shoes will look effortlessly stylish, as Emily Blunt’s yellow outfit shows.
