This weather!

Just when we thought we could keep the Summer dresses out for a while along comes more of the wet stuff! Come on British weather, give us some more sunshine!

So the jeans are back on, but the boots thing just is NOT going to happen, that's a step too far (even if they are lovely vintage ones with killer heels!)

The thing is, (unless you are one of those ever so lucky girls with stick thin legs that go on forever) flats just don't go with skinny jeans, however much we would like them to! So it's open toe 3" heels, even if it does rain!

The definition of fashion

As defined by Wikipedia.

"Fashion" refers to a distinctive; however, often-habitual trend in a look and dress up of a person, as well as to prevailing styles in behavior.

Wide belts for women

Here in the UK we are renowned for our fashion sense, particularly our coveted High Street. With so many great stores to choose from we are such lucky little shoppers! A belt can make a simple dress a fabulous dress! A great wide obi belt can make a dramatic addition. Especially a red obi against a black top or dress. The obi makes a great fashion statement. They come in all widths, materials and lengths these days and many high street clothing stores are now cottoning on to their appeal. You can spend a small fortune on them or not so much depending on the look you are aiming for. Some of the real leather obi belts do look amazing and sometimes it is worth spending that little bit extra for that gorgeous piece. However a leather look belt is sometimes all that's needed to finish off that Saturday night outfit!

Waist belts for the fuller figure

Plus size waist beltsIf you are curvier than the average girl, you can still get away with a wide waist belt. Well I think so anyway, do you agree?
A very wide belt on a curvy frame can look amazing, but you need to get the style just right. Go for a tight fit,  sometimes one size smaller does the trick (if the belt in question has an elasticated backing)
A skinny high waisted belt is also a great look on the plus size frame when teamed with a maxi dress of loose tee.

Wide black belt

Since Victoria Beckham wore that wide black belt a few years ago, the corset belt is still King! Why? Because it goes with just about anything! This image shows a 9" corset sitting around the upper and lower waist area. It's a bold accessory of choice but really can look stunning when used in the right way. Don't team this extra wide belt with a floaty maxi dress, it's just that bit too wide to look right. If that's the look you are going for then try a slightly narrower corset. A 6" would be ideal. Anything wider than that is a bit too much. However when teamed with a shirt and trouser combo the wide corset looks simply divine!
