Dresses + Belts = Long Legs

Monday, July 16, 2012



I mostly wear my dresses belt-less. Although, occasionally I use a belt for an extra loose dress/tunic to create some shape to it but since I read that even the thinnest belt can optically make your legs look longer, I started to look at belts in a totally different way. Tip: always wear your belt on your waist, never lower if you want longer looking legs. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Do you wear belts with your dresses? xo

P.S: Also, a few other tips on "mile long legs" and here are a few other takes on dresses: backless, mullet and maxi.
P.P.S: Plus, more sassy trends!

Love the trend. Unfortunately it doesn't look good on me as I don't have small waist. Have a great week! xoxo

I love the last dress/photo. I will be belting up if that's what it takes to make my legs look longer.

I usually wear them with the ones they come with... I guess I need to buy more of them!

Great advice! I love belts and I could use some help in the "height" department!

If you are happy and successful in your nursing profession you attire should reflect it all. Everything this demands time, and a person can hardly find free time for studying and spending all days long in a higher educational establishment. I believe they were called "hospital beds".
