    Add a belt to cinch your waistline, add structure to a dress or top that doesn't define your shape, and add interest and texture to your ensemble. Your natural waistline is the slimmest part of your body and can hide a belly if it's belted in the right place.  

    Add a belt around your hips if you want to lengthen your torso. But take some body advice: avoid this look if your tummy will hang over said belt--no one wants to highlight their "less than perfect" areas.


    French Braid Leather Belt from Fracesca's Collection 

    To naturally slim or disguise a belly, place a belt right under your bustline to create an "empire" waist.  Fabric will naturally fall away and create a seamless A-line which is flattering for any figure.  


    Tanzania Belt from Francesca's Collection 

    Belts can be embellished with nearly anything, add a punch of color to any outfit, braided for texture, skinny or thick, and some can be almost corset-like. 

    Check out a great selection of fun and functional belts at Francesca's Collections (at the Summit, 4262 Summit Plaza Drive, and Oxmoor Center, 7900 Shelbyville Rd).
