What did the 0 say to the 8? Nice Belt.
This lame joke is basically how I feel about sweater dresses. A chunky knit is not always destined to be your partner in crime. If you have some good curve to your frame, there's a chance that a sweater dress could make you look, well, spherical. But don't lose hope just yet! This is where your belt comes in to turn you into a total 10!

Don't get me wrong, I love a monochromatic outfit, but it's not the easiest look to pull off––and sometimes more is really more. In this case, adding a tiny sliver of purple manages to break up the color palette and tie the look together.

___________________________________________________ The Boyfriend Shirt
I shouldn't even have to explain this one. The photo says it all. Your boyfriend's shirt without a belt is a frumptastic look. Just don't do it. Proof below of what just a little piece of leather can do for this situation.

A good belt can turn your boy's shirt into a dress, but with a little more imagination it can maximize even more of your closet staples. See: the fur scarf. With the latch of a belt, it becomes a new fur vest. Genius!

The "pajama trend" is the best thing to become acceptable in fashion since––wait––it's still not considered totally acceptable. I can, however, say that it is the most comfortable thing to happen in fashion since probably the oversized Tommy Hilfiger era. Let's admit it, wearing pajamas can look a bit lazy, but adding a belt to the mix makes it look more intentional and less I-literally-just-woke-up. Here, Anna sports a men's buttonup and matching boxers from Opening Ceremony's fall collection. Somewhere, Julian Schnabel is smiling.
