How to make a plain or "ordinary" outfit look more stylish and glamorous? Add yourself a waist belt! Believe me, it's not a waste of money. Look in the "far far away" section of your closet (you know, the dresses, oversized shirts or tuniques you don't wear anymore) and give them a second life. People will ask you "is that a new shirt" and you'll be the only one to know the real answer. Shhh! It's our dirty little secret.
Colors you should take: auburn/cognac brown (this is THE color on Spring/Summer 2010), black, white, brown, beige or sand brown, gold or silver if you want to add a little more fantaisy or for the evening. And you MUST own a studded belt, if you like the rock/military look that we see EVERYWHERE this season (think Balmain, Balmain!).
