How to Update Your Look Without Shopping







You’re either a t-shirt and jeans and belt type of person, or a t-shirt and jeans person… there’s not really an in-between. I’ve never really considered myself to be the latter, but recently things have changed. Suddenly, belts are everywhere I look but not in the traditional way.

Between a corset belt like this one over a plain white tee, or this wrap belt I’m wearing wrapped around my waist over a button down, or even a classic belt used to cinch in a large coat, belts are becoming more and more of the new ‘it’ accessory in the fashion world and Im loving all of the updated designs that are available these days.

So the next time you throw on a classic white button down (like this one here) and a pair of jeansgrab that belt in the back of your closet and wrap it around your waist (not your hips) to give your look a fresh little update.

Another way to switch up your standard look with something you already own is to use that lip liner at the bottom of your makeup bag as a stand-alone lip color! For a monochromatic look, take the same lip liner (I’m using this one here) and draw a few lines on the outer corner of your eyelids, then using your finger, blend them in!

So are you going to try this styling trick? Let me know down below, and if you want to see this look plus my other favorite spring trends in action, click the link here!

    Well I do have a belt I don’t wear often unless it’s with my maxi dress… guess I’ll try it since I’m getting a pair of 7 for all mankind jeans!! I’ll have to tag you when I take the pics 🤗

  • Love this look! You pull it off so well!

    I inherited a vintage corset belt from my mother… At first I thought great, it is superb! But then I put it on and I have to confess it is not the most comfy accessory ever … especially is you have well, a belly. But it is so prettyyyyyyyyy ;-). So what the hell for comfort, I am wearing it anyway! Thx for the tips, it is simple and chic as usual.

  • Kiri says:

    In love with that ribbon you have repurposed as a belt (I think).
    I always try to dig through my wardrobe and wear things I haven’t worn in a while in different ways.
    I am going to try a belt over a shirt this weekend1

    I used to wear belts all the time with my outfits and they would always dress up my outfit. I’m not sure how and why I stopped but I definitely want to go back to accessorizing with them!

  • If only I could pull off a belt like this!! You look amazing Chriselle!

  • love this post! Trying to save more, so I like the idea of diversifying my things 🙂

  • Kate Lately says:

    I think this is a styling tool that I can’t decide if I love or not! …maybe it’s the yellow. Give me a turquoise belt and I would probably rock it!
    Amazing idea, Chriselle!

    Hi Chriselle,
    I applaud the idea of using what you already have and would love to see more of that in your posts, especially during fashion revolution week. I think it is important that blogging is different from mere advertising and making subscribers want the latest (and often expensive) trends. The classic pieces. like here denim and a white shirt, always look chic.

  • Keri says:

    I love this idea! I am always trying to maximize my wardrobe and get the most out of it. That off-white belt though <3
