Linea Pelle Chic Belts

Since the waist is a strategic place in the silhouette of a woman, the belt is certainly a girl's best ally, as Lauren Conrad (fashion designer and television personality) so aptly put it.

A belt can be used in a large variety of clothes - dresses, sweaters, baby doll shirts, coats and others. They create a waist in voluminous clothes that do not have any. The belt therefore creates the much-desired sensuous silhouette in any attire.

The biggest advantage of a belt is that it is very versatile. It completely changes the way a dress can appear. By simply changing a belt, one can wear a single dress in a different way several times. The belt is a key tool in creating one€™s own personal look.

The Linea Pelle Collection is certainly one of the best innovations that we have seen in recent years in the domain of the belt. For example, the Woven Medallion Waist Belt is a wide belt that is to be
worn quite high on the waist. Completely made of leather, this exquisite piece makes any dress into a full fashion statement. It is certainly the centre-piece of any attire.

Maxi Dresses For Summer

Ever since the maxi dress became part of the design trends again, hundreds of models are appearing every year.

Considered in the yesteryears as clothing for older women, maxi dresses are now being designed for younger and younger girls. They are increasingly casual, although you can still find some chic formal long dresses around. Designers are giving the maxi dress its original function of seduction and visual attraction.

Maxi dresses are increasingly flirtatious, even naughty. A good example is the Love Sam Strapless dress by Dawn Mayo. This grey-white piece is worn with stylish silk belt. This dress perfectly enhances the natural contours of the body, adding length to the silhouette. It is casual and funky; a light dress for a casual occasion.

Cynthia Vincent€™s Silk Strapless dress is another good example of the way maxi dresses have evolved over the recent years. This dress flows gently to the floor because of its gorgeously designed pleats. This dress is of the formal type, for a high-end social event for example. The maxi dress is also an excellent outfit as an evening dress.
