How to belt a dress

Hey what’s up, what’s up, what’s up?! Hope this finds you well. Hello and welcome! I always say a belt is THE one accessory that every woman needs in her closet. It may be the best kept accessory in my book. Because there are some who think jewelry is THE one accessory. I think a belt instantly elevates any look so I’m excited to share how to belt a dress.

And this would apply to other pieces: a jumpsuit or a top, for example. Okay, scroll and get going already! You can also watch the video above.
