Flatter Yourself with bebe Belts

June 1, 2006 at 6:30 pm by Designer Ella

Cinching waists for feminine beauty is not only flattering, it’s the chicest way to accessorize this season.

Bebe is all about belts worn at the natural waist, right now. They adorn the models with fabulous belts over their tops, but for a slightly more traditional/wearable look, don these belts around a short-sleeved blazer or trench coat.

And bebe is the one stop belt shop at the moment for fancy, sophisticated styles. Check out this Bow Belt and this Ruched Leather Belt, with genuine leather gathered on an elastic band. It can be worn with its buckle (not pictured) to the back, front, or even askew.

If you’re not yet in fit form, these belts will even help you appear as so. These belts from bebe are $54 for the “bow” belt and $39 for the ruched.

Nautical Striped Blouson Swimsuit

June 1, 2006 at 12:00 pm by Designer Ella

Liz Claiborne SwimsuitThe ultimate in 2006 trendy swimwear is this nautical blouson 2-piece by Liz Claiborne. If you want cool and cover from the sun, this tankini hides every spot of the belly. It has tummy control, but I don’t think it’s just for the plus-sized. Sure, it may not be for the very young, but this suit looks nice. With navy stripes, an embroidered anchor and braided straps to mimic a boat’s rope, this suit is the perfect trend (especially for that last year of having a tummy, I wish it to all). But being in a beach theme, it certainly can outlast a craze.

It’s too bad that there aren’t stripes on the bottom piece to elongate a shorter body—the break-up breaks up the line and flow of a form. I just love those diagonal stripes, they’re so flattering. Overall, it’s a stylish suit that appeals better than most designed to cover and hide, something one would want to be seen in. That’s great!
