Winter Wardrobe, black patent belt

I'm starting a new series to get through the blustery days of Winter. Why not talk clothes? I'm going to be posting several favorites in my winter wardrobe or items I'd like to have! Hopefully you guys will get some good ideas and share things with me too!

Wearing this belt again today reminded me that I need to share with the blog world! I used to think I could never wear belts in the trendy way that's so popular right now. Then, I found this belt at Nordstrom. Problem solved!

It's the perfect patent leather black belt that works on any body type. The front is patent and the rest is stretchy black elastic, which allows you to put it over anything. The belt is a nice larger size, but not so big that it looks gaudy or odd.  Lately, I've been wearing it to work over a ruffled shirt and cardigan. It also works really well over dresses or blazers. It's very versatile. The belt is Lauren by Ralph Lauren.

I also just saw online that it comes in brown with a faux crocodile texture. What do you guys think? Would you wear this belt or do you already have something similar that you like?


  1. nice post! I agree about the belt and think you should get the brown one. A belt definitely can pull together a look that was once "ok" and turn it into polished perfection.

  2. This post made me smile as I have a number of belts similar to this with big buckles and elastic backs, but from when they were in fashion last time :)

  3. I love how it looks with that cardigan!


Comments make me feel special. Leave a little something!
