Metal Plate Belt and a Peplum Top

When I first saw this trend (I think it been out about a year now) I got super excited, but the belts haven’t hit the consumer stores yet.  I waited patiently because I wanted to get it at a discount.  Finally the inspired versions started to hit stores like H&M, ASOS and Forever 21.  I don’t recall where I got this from but I know I paid less than $12 for it.  I actually have two one is a little slimmer than the one I’m wearing, which I got in NYC and the other one has metal studs.

I was trying to figure out how to wear this belt to work since I’ve had it for a few months now and haven’t worn it once. I decided to use it with a peplum top and these graphic pants I got from JCP.  I think it came out okay.
Short-Waisted Women: You can wear wide belts just make sure they are the same color as your top.

  3. This is a great outfit! Being shortwaisted myself, I was often hesitant to belt my outfits. But I’ve used your tip with great success.

      @ creativediav728 – I’m glad you were able to find ways to make our body type work. It is a struggle, but once you learn what works for you, things get easier.

  4. Oh my goodness! Two things: first of all, I used to follow your blog about 5 years ago and somehow maybe when you switched over to the new site, things got lost in the shuffle and I couldn’t remember your blog name. I stumbled upon your blog again and so glad that I did! Secondly, I have those exact pants and I love them. Wore them over on Dina’s Days with a blazer for work. You look fantastic, look forward to catching up on your posts!
