Ok, ladies, let's talk about something that I have been stewing about for months and months.
Plus size belts.
How hard is it to find great, stylish belts for us curvier girls? Especially if you are like me and not blessed with any type of waist! I personally need about a 38 inch belt, more like 40-42 inches if it is to be worn on my hips. And they are just about impossible to find!
How many of you look in the men's department for belts? I know I have. Haven't found anything nearly resembling a cute belt there, though. Belts are for me one of the top accessories in dressing great. Belts, shoes and purses should always be in the best quality you can afford. Scrimp on buying trendy pieces that you are only going to wear one season anyways, but never compromise on the quality of your shoes, handbags or belts.
Which leads me to my conundrum. If I find plus size belts at all, they are usually really icky! Lots of plastic crap that looks worn out the second time you wear it. Which sent me on a hunt online for FANTASTIC belts. Here's what I found!
I heart heart heart this belt!
It's a stretch belt with snakeskin embossed panels with metallic studs, big hook and eye closure and criss-crossed bands in the front. To.Die.For.
Think of all the possibilites with this one! Turn that boring plus size lbd into a stunner. Cinch that tunic over skinny jeans. And the best part is, it's only $19.50 at Ashley Stewart.
Here's a different kind of belt, one you can wear in your belt loops or over a cardigan or sweater. Love the leopard print to really pep up an outfit. Try this one with black trousers, a black shirt, black cardigan and camel colored shoes and bag. Easy and oh-so-chic!
On sale for $17.99 at One Stop Plus
If you are looking for a lot of choice in belts, Torrid is your go-to place! It was really hard to pick just one example of their great styles, but I managed! :)
Really love this red stretch belt with rhinestone tabs and a big buckle. Would look great with camel colors! $22.00 at Torrid
This might not look like much in the picture, but this is a really wonderful wrap belt from Igigi.
This is really trendy and along the lines of what I had been looking for in a belt. The two-tone colors in caramel and deep brown go great with just about every thing and the double leather looks great peeking out behind a cardigan!
$55 at Igigi.
