How to wear the right belt to suit your body type

Belts can transform an outfit, but they should suit your body type. Here are some belts that are best with certain body types.

Pear shaped figures – Ladies who are pear shaped will often try to make their waist look slimmer. This is easily achieved by wearing a belt. Choose a thin belt, but make sure it is worn on your waist and not any lower. A thin belt will make your waist look a lot smaller and create balance.

Petite shaped figures– For petite ladies, it is best to wear a belt in the same color as your dress as this will not break your outfit. A belt in the same shade will create curves while elongating a petite figure.

Shorter figures – For those who have a short torso will benefit from a medium sized belt in the same shade as your top; this will create the illusion of length. Remember not to match your top with your bottom.

Apple shaped figures – For those who have apple shaped figures should wear a broad belt under your This is because the area under your bust will often be the smallest area and therefore wearing a belt will give the illusion of a slender waist.

Hourglass shaped figures – If you are blessed with an hourglass shape, you should choose belts in metallic that will highlight your slim waist.
