Vintage belts never go out of trend and can be picked up from flea markets, thrifts, second hand vintage shops or even online outlets. They make an excellent way to accessorize and style your contemporary outfits and lend your dress a unique vintage look. Since they are extremely versatile, they can be easily styled in umpteenth fashions according to your mood and occasion. Here’s how you can seamlessly create a fashionable and gracious look by cinching your vintage belts around your waist.
1. The bohemian look
To flaunt a boho-chic look, wear your vintage belt above the waist and style your outfit like a floral dress. In case, your belt doesn’t hold the position, poke some new holes accordingly or clutch it together using a vintage brooch.
2. The hippy look
To create a hippy look, base your styling using a belt from 60s. Pair up your vintage belt with your flared low - rise jeans, drape it over your hips and leave your hair tangled. When trying a hippy look, make sure to wear bright colored top and some beaded jewelry. This will liberalize your outfit in a much hippy way.
3. The glamorous look
Pair your high-waisted denim bottom or a mini skirt with a tank top and high heels, and let the belt intertwine your waist to achieve a glamorous look. To add more sparks to your outfit, either pin diamante earrings to the left out holes of your vintage belt or create a colorful fabric around the band.
4. Draw others' attention
Unless others don’t admire your vintage belt, half your job is left undone. To create an impression of the constant flow of the outfit, match the color of your belt with other accessories such as neck scarf, a vintage hat or a pair of heels. This will accentuate your vintage style and make the eyes gradually shift to your belt .
White, black and brown leather belts can be conveniently teamed with most of the colors and textures. Style your vintage accessories the way they were used to be dressed before. Sneak a peek into the old fashion magazines from different eras and take your fashion ideas and inspiration from there. For instance, if your belt is from 50s, you should style it with a rockabilly dress or kitten heels to make it look genuine.
