My Top 6 Waist-Cinchers

Hermes H Belt
 It's just one of those brands that every ostentatious fashion blogger lusts after
Miu Miu Colour Blocked Leather Belt
Would fit in perfectly with the forthcoming SS/13 monochrome trend
River Island Zebra Lock Belt
I love all types of animal print, especially when they're 'glamourised'
Mulberry Braided Leather Belt
I had to include this because regular readers will know I have a penchant for Mulberry bags, so why not have a matching belt?
ASOS Link & Plate Detail Belt
This would look perfect wrapped around a tight fitted stretch lycra dress - Topshop have some great ones at the moment


Alexander McQueen Scarf
How creative, I'm inspired! -  it doesn't just have to be worn around the neck

So, my previous post discussed the importance of maintaining an ‘ideal’ waist measurement (scroll down if you didn't catch it), but achieving a flat, toned abdomen doesn’t happen overnight; so whilst we are working towards Jessica Ennis perfection, we may need a helping hand from our fashion accessories to hide our imperfections and accentuate our favourite body parts. I think it’s so important that we gals invest time and effort in dressing for our shape.

Belts, of course, are great little accessories; helping to cinch us in at the waist and create the appearance of an admirable feminine silhouette. The above belts are a few of my favourites.

Do you have any preferences? I love the idea of the Mcqueen scarf worn as a belt. I’m definitely going to experiment with mine!
