Belt The Day Away

This is the first day that truly feels like winter!  The brisk cold air, unveiling of holiday windows, and Thanksgiving talk makes it feel normal [finally] to wear boots and jackets.  The city is bustling today, as usual, especially in warm places like stores and coffee shops.  I just got back from a meeting at Nespresso, one of my favorite haute-spots on the Upper East Side.  I ordered a mocha latte, which has a chocolatey taste without being over caffeinated.

As I was walking to and from Nespresso, I noticed a number of women fashioning thin belts with dresses and pants; perfect for day and night.  I usually stick to my vintage Hermes H belt because it’s classic.  Plus, I have three different colored straps for it to go on, so I alternate: navy blue, tan, and black.  However, I now want a belt that’s thinner and not expensive, but truly fun for those outfits that need a quick add of pizzaz.

Jessica Szohr always does a great job at adding a thin belt to her outfits like in the photo above–she’s knowledgeable about pulling off an effortlessly chic look.  ASOS has a great selection of thin belts.  From sparkly belts to cheetah belts to metallic belts and much more, the options are endless.  However, I came across a fantastic 3 that are perfect for this season.  Whether with a chic corduroy, a simple LBD, or just a t-shirt and jeans, these belts can add a bold factor without spending lots of money.

And get ready Style Solutions readers, because starting next week, it’s all about the holidays!
