How many belts do you own? If you’re like me, I’ve been collecting belts for many years. Belts stand the test of time, although, I don’t have my fringed belt from the 70’s any longer — darn! There are wide belts, skinny, leather, suede, bangled, beaded, metal, the worn look, shiny patent leather, and more.
Belts give your body shape more definition, and when used around your waist gives you an hourglass look. Belts can make a bulky sweater or blouse look fitted. I wear a skinny belt with my jeans to help them stay put.
In the photo above, Helen removed the satin belt that comes with the trench coat, and replaced it with a beautiful silver conch belt.

Next, Helen Anderson uses a belt to amp up a cardigan sweater, giving it a figure-hugging silhouette and a pop of color.
Below, I’m joking around with Helen, but we’re both looking seriously stylish.
Below is my artistic, thoughtful pose. Adding a jeweled accessory belt to a simple blue sheath dress provides a finishing touch.
Many of the clothes we model are available for purchase right now at Finders Keepers. If you’re not a San Luis Obispo resident, you can have the item shipped to you. If you live in SLO, I highly recommend a visit to the store. There are always treasures to be found!
