Recently I had a request from a friend to share tips and inspiration on how to wear belts with dresses.
I was thrilled because I designed my original belt collection for styling dresses. I was living in Buenos Aires, Argentina where women dress up for every-single-occasion. Yes, including to take out the trash. I’m not exaggerating… a neighbor might see them after all.
Summer days get pretty hot and sticky so a breezy light dress is the typical go-to for most women. And during cooler months, dresses are worn more for dressing up to parties, going out to dinner, museums or concerts.
But guess what… this dress is always adored with a belt.
As I was designing my one-size leather belt collection I was so inspired by the beautiful pulled together outfits all around me. And I was just imagining how women back at home, although usually very casual, would be excited to incorporate a little glam, or detailing into her outfit, especially to a dress.
A belt is that humble little accessory that completely changes a dress.
The best thing about wearing a belt with a dress, especially an ADA belt, is that it suits everyone. It adds feminine curves to an athletic shape, defines and accentuates an hourglass silhouette. It adds color and texture, breaks up prints, it pulls an outfit together and helps it look more polished.
And the versatility and one-size concept makes it easy to wear with your entire wardrobe…but today…we will focus on dresses.
Here are a few more questions I received that I felt were important to a “dress” at this time. 🙂
Do you have any tips on wearing belts with dresses? And what styles would you recommend?
