How to Style a Skinny Belt: Cross Hitch
Back on the blog after a few weeks away: missed you!!
Here's a fresh way to style a favorite old snakeskin belt, or a new one picked up for pennies secondhand, or even another type of belt altogether, like the one on your trench. It's little tricks like these that make a look "effortlessly" chic (and as anyone who looks effortlessly chic will tell you, it takes many tricks indeed).
Take one skinny belt, thread the shank through the top of the buckle, around, and cross over and back through the buckle below (click on the photo to enlarge to see closer and work it out from that, much easier than trying to follow the instructions . . . )
This look is especially great if the outfit is essentially monochrome, as here.
Brilliant styling by the UK's Red magazine, April 2010, many thanks, more from this editorial later this week.
