Every season comes with its trends; some that last a season and some that become quite classic. The waist belt trend has filtered down to the high street from the catwalks in the past. This time however, the cinched waist trend comes with a twist.
The cinched waist of this season comes wide and edgy. Statement belts with corset detailing and/or an emphasis on width are the way to go this season. Eyelet and tie details are the epitome of this trend and wearing an actual corset over your clothes lends even more fashionista credit. I love accentuating my waist, it’s one of the smallest part of a womans’ body and has an instant flattering effect.
A corset belt may have been a bit too ‘edgy’ for me since my style is quite romantic but this belt was perfect. It is wide enough, has the ‘corset’ effect and the all important tie detail. I thought it was the perfect accessory to add interest and a slight edge to a basic outfit.
Although I questioned whether my wardrobe really needed this dress when buying it, it is a great basic. I can style it a number of different ways with different accessories and is the perfect dress with which to pair this belt. Although it is a knit dress, it is light enough to wear throughout spring and summer but can be layered for the colder months. It is a great cut, fit and of great quality for a very reasonable price.
