Down and Chic

Dressed down. Today’s look features a perfectly fitted red shirt—slim through the bust, fitted at the waist, and an overall feminine silhouette. The shirt is worn with denim cropped skinnies and cinched together by a patent belt. Animal print, haircalf, and patent leather skimmers add a jazzy touch.

    The cinched waist flatters you.

    Would you like to trade links?

    Love the red shirt. And, you are tempting me to try a belt over my top. I haven’t done that in years.
    happy weekend to you.

    Kira Fashion. Thanks. The belted look is so new for me. I am getting quite comfortable with the effect.

    Secretista: Yes, yes, I sure did win that honor back in college. And, it looks like you are well on your way. Thanks for coming by!

    Budget Chic: Agreed. It is quite an attention getter too.

    Seeker: I cannot say enough how you have inspired me to start wearing belts like this. Thanks!

    Enc: That red does say power, doesn’t it! Intense color…

    Ana: Thanks. And, let’s trade links.

    La Belette Rouge: It is strange that I am about to encourage you to bring back the belted look, for I NEVER wore belts like this until recently. But, you’ve got to try it! Have a wonderful weekend!
