Need to add a little sass to your wardrobe? To whittle your middle and show off your small waist, wrap a belt around your favorite blazer. When the weather turns chilly, you can pair your prim and proper blazers with a fabulous belt for a look that is figure-flattering and fantastic.
Silk Snakeskin Jacket and Skinny Belt
Need a hot outfit for a bachelorette party in Vegas? For this sexy special event, take a walk on the wild side with a silk jacket featuring a bold snakeskin print. Layer your white and black tailored blazer over a black form-fitting dress and a pair of sky-high black leather pumps. Finish the look with a high-wattage red lipstick and a black patent leather skinny belt.
Thin Knit Blazer and Belt
As you transition from summer to fall, layering a knit blazer over your dresses can extend the life of your summer wardrobe. For an impromptu dinner date with the one you love, pair your strapless little black dress with a thin white and black knit blazer. Boost your basic black and white combo with a red suede belt. Pump up the fun for a weekend outing with a red handbag and silver shoulder-duster earrings.
Red Blazer and Red Belt
For work, take your power suit up a notch. Wrap a red leather belt around your cotton single-breasted blazer. Wear a neutral pair of cream or taupe pants to dial back the brightness of the strong red hue. Add tiny gold drop earrings and a pair of nude patent leather pumps. A tailored taupe leather handbag completes this wonderful workplace look.
Wool Blazer and Wide Suede Belt
Neutral pairings such as a taupe wool jacket and a brown suede belt can be sophisticated and classic looks, if you know how to mix them just right. Liven up this ensemble by pairing your neutral jacket and blazer with a rose-colored handbag and matching suede platform pumps. For work, wrap a single strand of pearls around the neck for polish. Throw a sand-colored pencil skirt into the fashion mix for an outfit that is trendy and terrific.
