Your MoS Personal Shopper: Belts

For the second edition of our MoS Personal Shopper series, we are looking at belts!  Belts are the perfect accessory for so many looks, and they can make the most shapeless tunic super-flattering.  We like to wear a skinny belt over a cardigan with a pencil skirt (although I'm not sure any belt would fit around my tummy until after Dec!), and we love belts with simple sheath dresses too!



We love the double-buckle style!  It is fun and fashion-forward with a bit of an edge, without being as over-the-top as a corset type belt.  We would wear these with a sheath dress and some ankle boots for an edgy look!

You can't go wrong with an equestrian chic belt.  It is classic American style that we love, epitomized of course by Ralph Lauren.  We would wear these belts with an oxford shirt, jeans, and our favorite Fryes.  They would also look fab with a shirtdress.

If you need a classic brown belt, the options are limitless!  These are belts you can wear with just about anything, when you need to make your look a little more polished.

Everyone needs a good black belt!  These belts are classics that you can wear with everything from jeans to a cocktail dress.

We find ourselves wearing skinny belts more than anything else!  They add just the right look of elegance without adding too much to your look.  They are classic and give your outfit such a polished look.

For a touch of glamour, how about adding a metallic belt to your look?!  These are perfect for those cold nights when you wonder, "Can I get away with just wearing jeans?"  A metallic belt can really dress up basic jeans.

A pretty bow around your waist is such a feminine touch!  From grosgrain ribbon to studded leather, there are a variety of ways you can add this ladylike detail.

When you need a pop of color in your outfit, a colorful belt is the perfect way to do it!

You know how we love organic elements in a room.  Elements of nature are so fun and stylish in belts too!

Do you wear belts often?  Which of these is your favorite?  We are loving the Anthropologie Forest Creatures especially!

I was just at J.Crew looking at their belt selection and they are ALL skinny - which I normally don't wear. I love the tortoise patent leather but seeing as I actually use my belts to help keep my pants up (darn low-rise jeans), I'm not sure that would work. Ideally, I'd like a inch-wide tortoise patent leather belt. Have you seen one anywhere?
