Waist It!

When it comes to your waist, the golden rule is to keep it cinched. Belts have been making their presence felt on F/W 2018 runways — from Versace, to Elie Saab and Gucci. This little add-on packs a big punch when it comes to elevating your style while also slimming your silhouette into a flattering hourglass. When it comes to evening wear, the easiest way to change the look of a gown you sported before is to wear a belt. It is also the best alternative to altering.

Suffice it to say, the styling possibilities are infinite, as is the internet’s statement belt selection. Here, I’ve narrowed it down for you.

Velvet Crush


This winter, it is all about the soft focus. Prada, Giorgio Armani, Saint Laurent and Valentino, they all made a case for velvet on the runway. In shades of burgundy and red, the must-have fabric looks divine, but needless to say, black, blue and dark green will add up to your wardrobe as well.

Get the look: Angie velvet blazer and merlot velvet shirticon, both by Saint Laurent, wallet on a chain velvet shoulder bag and leather and velvet platform sandals, both by Prada.
