Fashionable Thursday: Belt It On
Belts were primarily implemented in Ancient Egypt to be worn to tie long tunics around the waist, and later during the Renaissance period to accentuate the waist without compromising comfort. They have been a favorite over the years within the accessories department. Serving as an easy and fast way to upgrade and highlight an outfit while providing the optical illusion of the hourglass body shape. In the present and fashionable historical moment, the truth is that thick or thin, belts are here to stay this fall/winter season. Accentuate your waist as much as you want, belts pull everything in while offering you a perfect shapely figure.

It will offer you an immediate proportional, chic and fashion forward appereance.
