OK, so if you want to be fashionable and on trend this season, without thralling through shop after shop, there is a really easy way to update your wardrobe. Simply, just belt everything, fullstop.
The silhouette of the season centers around the clinched waist. The 40's, a major theme for a/w '07, was all about defining the waist. By adding a simple belt to your look, you'll be instantly up to date.
Belt everything. Dresses, jackets, coats, jumpers, tops; there is no stopping the reign of the belt. Slim belts are best secured at the waist of a dress, as they add a delicate, feminine detail, whereas broad or chunky belts make for a great statement bound over a winter coat. But don't be afraid to mix and match, a dress can look just as sophisticated with a wide belt.
