After class, I saw that not only did she call, but I had also missed a call from my parents, and there was now a voicemail marked "URGENT". Of course, panic struck, and I barely made it out of the room before I was accessing my messages.
And of course, this dire emergency was not a death in the family, was not a serious injury or illness, and was not anything other than:
"OMG! FASHION EMERGENCY!".
However, my darling sister did provide me with substance for this entry. While I don't profess to be any form of expert (and my sister is very emphatic on ensuring that I don't believe myself to be one), I thought I'd at least put my teaching degree to use.
I've seen pictures of people wearing cardigan sweaters and belts, and I've never been sure how to style it. What size of belt should I use?
Ultimately, the thickness of belt is determined by the thickness of the sweater. If it's a thicker sweater, go with a thicker belt, to maintain the scale. However, if it's a finer knit, go wild! When I started to mix belts and cardigans, I went primarily with a thinner belt:
However, I have made use of larger belts as well (I've included other sweaters, such as wraps, as well, for illustration):
And, of course, there is also the option of "belt-alternatives" such as ribbons or scarves
As for whether to button or unbotton, that's entirely up to you, and the look you want... Lately, I've had more luck with unbottoned:
Thanks for the question, Deb!
