Ok, so my title is a little misleading. You won’t really lose 5 pounds in 5 seconds- but look at my picture on the right compared to the left.
A belt makes all the difference!
I hesitated belting the sweater- but as soon as I saw the photo I knew it was the right choice.
The sweater is a bit shapeless, and by adding the belt I am now defining my waist- and also making my legs look longer- how is that possible?
Let me explain. Basically it’s all about balance.
Outfits need to be divided into thirds- not halves.
In the picture on the right my body is divided into half- the top half and the bottom half.
By adding the belt- the balance changes- and now the bottom half (below the belt) is larger- 2/3 of the outfit, while above the belt is 1/3.
I know, I know math on a Sunday morning- it’s too much!
Go enjoy your day. And a quick thank you to Mother Nature for another sunny day. I love you!
Skirt: Nordstrom, Sweater: Old Navy, Shoes: Target, Belt: so old I can’t remember! LOL!
