Belted dresses are one of those trends that you’re either in love with or you loathe. Fortunately, if you’re on team love, we have a couple of sound suggestions for how to wear a belted dress and look both stylish and sexy all year round.
The first suggestion to make when thinking about how to wear a belted dress is to decide what type of belted dress will work best. For example, if you live in cooler climates, you would need something less formal such as a satin evening gown with an oversized collar or capelet. If you’re someone who wants something more casual such as a black dress with a sash, your best bet is to go for something more classical such as a black pencil skirt with a white shirt, finished off with a wide black sash.
Once you know what type of belted dress will work best for you and the occasion, it’s time to decide how to wear the belted dress itself. The number one way to wear the belted dress involves purchasing an oversized belt that’s either thicker or in contrast to your outfit. To give an example, if you purchase a belted sheath dress in tan, try pairing it with an oversized brown leather belt for a look that’s both sexy and professional at the same time.
