STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bringing it Together with a Belt

With a new school year just around the corner, many of us are caught off guard in terms of our wardrobes. After wearing sun dresses, silky chemises, and rompers all season, we are not quite ready to let go and have these gems replaced with chunky sweaters and leggings again. The question on many fashionable minds is how to turn our whimsical and flowy summer dresses into fall knock-out pieces.

The answer is simple and doesn't require much editing to what you are already sporting. With the slight addition of a belt and incorporation of basic black flats in lieu of strappy sandals or gladiators, any summer outfit will easily translate into a fall look gracefully. This Fashionista is wearing an amazing peach colored silk 3/4 sleeve dress with a unique pleated bodice. By adding a simple black belt, she is making the dress more uniform and appropriate for next season, especially with the darker color. I love the Skinny Vitello Leather Belt by Prada. 

Hint: When wearing a girly dress like this Fashionista, make it more edgy by adding a belt that incorporates one of the most up and coming trends, studs. I love Topshop's Dome Stud Skinny Belt. I also like the look of an oversized or men's belt being double stranded to add a more casual and militaristic look. Try J. Crew's Refined Skinny Leather Belt in a size too big.
