The perfect accessory that compliments most outfits and not to mention, your waist! The waist belt was specifically designed for women that have hourglass-shaped figures. However, the use of the belt is not limited to that specific group of women. It can also be used to break an outfit up, or to make an outfit more balanced. When choosing a waist belt, you definitely want one that will accentuate your curves, not a torture device that suffocates you. 

The sky is the limit when it comes to the different possibilities of pairing outfits with waist belts. They are just that versatile. The usual rules still apply though, try not to pair tops and bottoms with different patterns together. This Fashionista got it right, notice how she broke up her outfit and accentuated her curves at the same time? Not only did she do that, but she also did not over do it at all. She paired her plain yellow skirt with a cute floral-patterned top. 

Waist belts are very accessible. You can find them online or in stores. Most clothing stores, regardless of how specialized their shop is, will carry belts. I have personally found one of my favourite belts in the most random of shops, an antique store that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. I had no idea what the belt was doing in the store, but it certainly was a lucky day for me! ASOS has one of the best online collections for waist belts I reckon. Keep it simple with this classic black belt. Or make a statement with a bolder piece.
