Emphasizing the middle of the body has always been considered feminine in fashion. In 2023 we are fed up with bulky, oversized outfits that don't show off feminine curves or the waist. After a long fashion hiatus, the waist belt is making a comeback in our closets to give dresses, blazers and sweaters shape and draw focus to the narrowest part of our torsos.
You can remember one principle: the more conspicuous and wider the waist belt, the better the effect. In 2023, the accessory will come in a wide variety of colors and shapes. When choosing a waist belt, you should ask yourself what purpose the belt should serve in the chosen outfit.
For example, the more the color of the belt contrasts with the rest of the garment, the more focus there is on the center of the body. The belt at the waist becomes a stylistic element that lends the perhaps rather reserved outfit in neutral colors a powerful statement character and demonstrates fashion awareness.
Keyword power dressing: With the help of waist belts, powerful, visual statements can be made. Anyone who consciously emphasizes the middle of their body shows outwardly that they are aware of their own strength and don't let anything shake them. This can be particularly helpful in business situations. In this context, you can rediscover a tried-and-tested piece of clothing when styling: the combination of blazer and waist belt is particularly popular in the first months of 2023.
Well-fitting jeans in a dark wash and a tight-fitting, black turtleneck sweater can serve as a basic outfit. An oversized blazer in a neutral color such as charcoal elevates the look and is punctuated by a statement tie at the waist. The outfit looks particularly harmonious if elements that appear on the belt are repeated in the rest of the styling. For example, if the belt has a large golden buckle, it is a good idea to combine it with golden earrings. Or a handbag and shoes that match the belt in terms of color and material.
