Belt your holiday dresses to flaunt your waist and give you that perfect sexy hourglass proportion to look skinnier this year!
Scientific studies have shown that we find symmetry attractive and just by adding a belt to any outfit you can create that illusion whether or not you were born with it. Regardless of your size this trick works for everyone.
You might think a belt is too casual for a cocktail dress but the secret is in finding the right one ... metal, patent, ribbon, or jeweled - the key is to pick a belt that is equally as dressy as your outfit. If you don't have time to hit up the alterations lady, a belt is your answer to never looking frumpy again during the holidays. Many women make the mistake of thinking that just because they aren't a size 2 that this won't work for them. Or that they should wear a bigger, non-fitted dress, but adding more drapey fabric will only make you look bigger. By cinching in your waist you draw attention to the smallest part of your body giving you a curvy shape which translates into sexy.
Belts can also be a game changer allowing us to recycle holiday dresses from Christmas' past. An inexpensive way to change your entire look.
