Elegantly waistedWhile fashion's focus remains on the slender waist, the silhouette has softended.Last season's flamboyant peplums give way to beautifully tailored curves and belted middles, creating an hourglass line that is smart and super-feminine. The belt is one the season's big accessory stories, whether cinching a sleek pencil dress - like at Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti, Victoria Beckhamand Dolce & Gabbana - or over winter coats at Chloe, Dior and Rodarte.Follow these tips to ensure you're looking hot this Autumn/Winter:
- Belts are one of autumn's big accessory stories. Wearing yours in the same colour palette as your jacket or dress will elongate the torso rather than breaking it up.
- When cinching coats and heavier jackets, choose an elasticated belt for maximum movement and flexibility.
- The new shapely tailored jackets are an easy way to lend lean, boyish figures the illusion of womanly curves.
