One easy way to give a cardigan instant shape is to add a belt. Place the belt at your true waist (the smallest part) to create a sexy hourglass shape. Belts help define your waistline perfectly. And whether your sweater is fitted, loose, or chunky, the women above all show cool ways of rocking the belt over a sweater.
There are a million different ways to wear a belt and a cardigan. Over, under, right at the waist, slightly above, slightly below. One of the reasons the belts are so popular is due in part to the flattering nature, but also because it makes anyone like a cardigan, belts look cute belted both over or under jackets. Also notice that for all of these looks (cardigans, also)…varying belt widths can be used. So just play around, and see what works best for you!
Just because a sweater is warm doesn’t mean it has to look bulky—create curves in all the right places by cinching it with a belt. Can’t find one that fits? Tuck in the end of a braided one, or tie a skinny leather belt over a cardigan, or tie a long narrow belt into a lovely elegant bow.
