Style Hack: Belt Your Sweater

Despite preaching their powers for years and years, I have to admit, I’m not a fan of belts. Really anything that cinches my waist or feels tight or at all restricting is not my thing. I’d probably wear a big bag all the time if I could, but the thing is, it’s impossible to ignore what  belt can do for your outfit. And seeing layers look so insanely polished when cinched by a belt  makes me wish I was one of those Olivia Palermo-polished types who could jump on the belt band wagon and not fidget and immediately regret the decision ten minutes into work. The thing is, I may never be that person, but if there’s one piece I could see myself doing the belt thing with, it’s sweaters. Belting loose, boxy styles is not only figure flattering, creating that all admired hourglass shape and proving yes, you have a body under there, but it also instantly makes what would typically be relegated to a weekend apartment-only sweater to a polished office-appropriate piece with a midi skirt or tailored trousers, or even a going-out top with the right fitted pants or mini. Plus, a sweater is so cozy, it feels so much less confining than any other belted outfit that even someone like me could maybe pull it off without fussing with it all day. Maybe.
