A stylish belt is one of the most practical accessories, as it can be worn in many ways and not only brightens up any piece of clothing, but also significantly changes it: it shapes the style and silhouette of the outfit. At Printa, we especially like to play with belts: the light, oversized pieces - which we have in large numbers - are especially versatile.
Now let's see what kind of belt you should choose for your body shape!
Belts with a wider, larger surface, even decorated with a pattern, look especially good on tall ladies. Such statement pieces should be worn on the waist, and medium or smaller belts should be left on the hips. An example is our brushed jute cotton-poplin belt, which is a truly unique accessory, yet tasteful and clean
It is advisable for shorter ladies to choose a belt as thin as possible, because it optically stretches the body. If it is tied at the waist and even matches the color of the garment, this effect will be even more dominant. For example, our black rope belt.can be perfect for this
SHORTER UPPER BODY
A shorter upper body can be optically easily offset with a belt loosely tied between the waist and hips, which thus creates a semi-circular shape and creates sufficient balance. For this purpose, a hemp belt, which has a nice fall, but is sufficiently firm, can be ideal. These are made by Anikó Mengyán at Printa, from sustainable and durable hemp.
If you have a more boyish body, tie your belt anywhere; on the waist, hips or in between, it's always a good idea to wear it with a loose dress or top and pull it out loosely from the belt. This will create the illusion of wider hips and a slimmer waist. It is advisable to choose a thinner, strong belt, even this natural rope belt.
It is recommended for ladies with wider hips to avoid a belt worn on the hips, because it strengthens that area even more, on the other hand, a piece tied at the waist will look wonderful. This can be a more prominent belt to draw attention to that area. Our beige linen tie belt is perfect for this purpose.
A wider shoulder belt can be nicely offset by a belt worn on the hips, because it optically strengthens that area and draws attention there. We strongly recommend our knotted black leather belt, a true classic piece with a little twist!
With our article, we only want to give you ideas and inspiration, but no matter what your body shape is, if you like a belt and feel good in it, then it is definitely the ideal choice for you!
