SAVE WITH A DESIGNER BELT

SAVE WITH A DESIGNER BELT

Do you want a designer look on a budget? Save with a designer belt. This little piece makes the biggest difference. I’ve loved fashion my entire life and have always been inspired by the designer world within it, but buying designer on a retail sales income isn’t very realistic. The trick to getting a designer look on a budget is all about the mix. Designer belts are good introductory designer price points, can be worn all year, and don’t wear out as fast as clothes. You don’t have to have a tiny waist to pull them off. There is a style that will work for every body style from long and lean to busty and short waisted. Look.

Here I’m wearing the 1.5″ size with my trendy $22 Target jeans and baby blue button up. If you are short waisted, larger busted, or don’t have much of a waist, consider the .8″ size . It won’t take up as much real estate in the space you don’t have it to spare.

WHAT SIZE TO BUY

The most popular question I am asked about buying belts; ” What size should I buy?”. The trick is getting one that you can wear through the loops of your lowest rise jeans or around your waist.

1.5″ GUCCI BELT
If you’re more of a visual learner. Here is an IGTV video on belts I made.

HOW TO MEASURE

1.Take a soft tape measure through the loops of your lowest rise jeans.

2. Measure around your natural waist.

If you can’t get your hands on a soft tape measure use wrapping ribbon or dental floss and hold finished lengths up to a ruler.

3.Convet to centimeters. Most designer belts us that instead of inches.

4. Find a size that works for your biggest and smallest number. Belts are measured to the middle hole.

5. Size up. If you can’t find your ideal size, size up. You can always buy a bigger size and have a cobbler punch an extra hole or shorten from the buckle end.

MOSCHINO LEATHER BELTS

MULTICOLOR MOSCHINO BELT $325

The magic of Moschino is all the different ways this belt without a buckle can change a look.

The 1.5″ size is great for covering an ugly elastic waist.

Swapping out your free fabric belt for a Moschino will make your outfit look more expensive.

No waist. No problem. Just add a magic Moschino.
