Style Check: BELTS

I admit it. I'm not the best when it comes to accessorizing an outfit with a belt. Sure, I've had my fair share of pyramid stud belts that I've worn with jeans (my favorite was the fuzzy leopard print one!), but as far as matching a belt over a dress or a top? No clue. I want to try it, but I have a hard time finding a belt to go with an outfit. HOWEVER:


It is the belt I just bought at Forever21, matched with a dress from Target I got a year or so ago! And, of course, my new HK cardi. Do you love it? I was so proud. I love it. I just can't believe I've finally successfully matched a great belt with a cute dress. Well, after that, I was just so excited and I've gone on a Pinterest-belt-photo marathon. Here are some more belt-style inspirations. Enjoy! (Images linked to source listed on Pinterest.)










Which is your favorite? I really love the second to the last one, with the leopard print. I want to invent in a ton of new belts, especially ones that I can knot! Let me know about your favorite way to wear a belt, and your favorite stores to shop for them!

  1. ok-your dress is ADORBS. And the belt IS fab with it! Admittedly, I am fearful of the belt in my own wardrobe. I haven't figured it out yet. LOL

  2. I was wondering why my pinterest was suddenly flooded with belts yesterday...

    I own like 1000 belts (like 5 in reality), but I don't think I ever wear any of them. I had one skirt that actually had BELT LOOPS that looked really cute with a belt, but I think I had to give it away when it got to be too big for me. I've yet to figure out a way to wear belts with like, anything else I own. I have a skinny braided one like in the second photo, though, so maybe I should experiment with it.

  5. I have about ten dress belts. I wear them ALL the time. I like finding them at thrift stores for a few dollars, so I have a variety on hand for every outfit! Bright colors are my fav!

    1. I just bought 3 skinny bright belts from Forever 21 for $1.50 & then a pretty floral print one for like $8 -- they should be in the mail soon!

  6. Fold down cowboy boots and wrap belts around them or a new edgy twist!

  7. Looks great! I have to say I'm addicted to belts and only wish I had more in fun colors. Totally jealous of that collection of 8 gazillion belts that you found on Pinterest! (Speaking of Pinterest - what's your link?)

    I frequently find my best belts in thrift, second-hand, and vintage stores (and I've noticed that there are lots of awesome vintage belts on Etsy!). I love the wide leather ones and like to pair them with a-line dresses and skirts (like here: http://katealamode.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/winter-wear-in-san-francisco/) or flowier dresses (like here: http://katealamode.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/the-kate-and-rocky-show/). I also remix belts that come from other dresses.
