Wearing a monochrome dress is best to lengthen your vertical line, meaning, it makes you look taller. However, if worn as is, a monochromatic look tends to look dull and plain. Quickly amp up your mono by adding a slim contrasting belt. It emphasizes your waist and smoothly adds details to your dress.
See how Nicole Ritchie elevated this sunny spring dress by Thakoon with an Etro print belt. I love how a black slim belt resuscitated Leighton Meester´s green wrap-around dress and put everything in place. Selena´s white suit and shorts combo was made elegant with a black contrast belt and black pumps. While Rihanna´s little red dress was fully brough out of its elements with a slim leopard belt.
Choose Your Belt
Go for neutral slim belts – brown, black or leopard print – if yours is a bright single-colored dress, a printed monochrome, or a white combo. In reverse, if you’re wearing a neutral, opt for bright-colored or printed with rich details slim belt to contrast your dress.
