Get Familiar: ‘Bye’-Waisted Belt?
I just want to get this out of the way first and foremost, I am NOT saying that the “high-waisted belt” look is out. I’m just saying that there comes a time where as an Urban Graduette you have to switch it up. Now I will admit that the belted look does make an outfit “pop” depending on the choice of belt. BUT we have all seen this look abused one too many times [see below]
So here is another weapon to add to your fashion arsenal…a tie waist blouse. Can ya dig it, dolly? Sorry, that was my lame attempt at inserting some nostalgic slang because the high-waisted look is from like the Fifties.
Sooo here is another suggestion (more like a FASHION FORECAST)…wear an Obi (帯, おび). An 帯, おび is a Japanese sash usually worn with kimonos and keikogis (better known as the gi). Here are some pictures to get you started but it’s a lot more fun to figure out your own way to rock em.
