Trend: Boyfriend's Belt

Thursday, January 13, 2011

One of my favourite trends right now is the boyfriend belt look. It totally gave a new meaning to how we wear a regular belt and it looks incredible even with a dress! Darlings, are you a fan of the tied belt? Would you wear it? xoxo

Lovely - I'm wondering if I could recreate the look with one of my belts but I don't think I have anything long enough. Maybe I'll fasten two together!

I am a huge fan of the tied belt. I tie almost all my belts when I put them over dresses and cardigans.

Happy Thursday!

I love the belt trend but I just wish it looked better on me. Even if the belt is loose it just doesn't look good. Oh well I'll let someone else rock it!!
