Fashion Staple: The Skinny Brown Belt

Wednesday October 6, 2010 by Hafsa

Pair it with a simple white dress, layer it over a cardigan, place it over prints, or go down the traditional road and wear it through the belt loops of your jeans or shorts! If you don’t have a skinny brown belt in your closet, it’s high time you get one.

It’s been used as a runway accessory by fashion designers...

Tory Burch, VPL, Doo.Ri

...and has made its way into the wardrobes of celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Leighton Meester and Taylor Swift.

I think it looks amazing on the celebs, but it's difficult to pull off. I'm skinny, but for some reason if I wear a thin belt it makes my hips look very wide which they're not. For me it's a no, but try it out! It could look amazing!

I have a closet full of fabulous belts but there is only one or two I wear regularly. It isn't easy wearing a belt with everything unless you have a lot of flowy stuff.

I don't have a skinny brown belt. I have a skinny blue croc belt that I love but never wear. For that matter I don't wear most of my belts, lovely though they are. Anyone else buy belts and then not wear them?

And since when does Zara offer online shopping? This is music to my ears!

I like it over cardis and chunky knits. The Zara one is my fave...I really don't think it's worth splurging on a Prada belt when it's so plain...

I adore this look (on others)! However, I have difficulty wearing any kind of thin belt. On me it rather emphasizes my pear shape - but maybe it's time to experiment a little more. These celebs are all smaller than me in the waist area (that's childbearing for ya...)
