I’m a belter.
When it comes to outfits, it usually involves a belt of some kind. It’s trendy and it’s what everyone is doing, right?
Well, my boyfriend gets tired of this look and he thinks it’s boring and stodgy. Loose blouses should be allowed to billow in the wind, he says. They’re meant to flow, not to be tied down by a belt.
I agree, but a belt makes the outfit look better. It separates the body segments and balances your proportions. Without a belt, you could look shapeless or worse…fat! Not that it’s a bad thing, but who wants to intentionally look bigger than they actually are?
So, I’ve been trying to go belt-less.
Call it a mini-challenge, but I do want to mix up the type of outfits I create since I tend to fall back on the belted look.

How about you?
Do you belt it up or keep it easy breezy?
