Today's Everyday Fashion: A New Shape With Your Pencil Skirt


This post is, first and foremost, about mixing two different leopard prints! Or, at least that’s where it started. But what’s a girl to do when those two prints create a less-than-stellar shape (see below, left)? You get creative! You pull out a belt to help you get the shape that you want! This belt has a sliding feature so you can make it as tight as you need, which cinches in the waist, creating a peplum shape. And the belt buckle looks right at home as the perfect little decoration right in the middle of your waist. I think the only thing missing is the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” updo. And of course you can add a black blazer or cardigan for cooler weather!
