For the guys who are in touch with their feminine side or the lads who are man enough to handle it the accentuated waist is all the rage now. Trench coats, winter coats and even long sweaters now look their best when their ‘belted’. A small leather belt or just a tied robe will do the job.
But there are other ways to focus on the waist, of course. We shot some  hipster boys sporting high waisted jeans and bermudas (with their shirts tucked in) looking quite refreshing as well.

Not only on the streets, but on the catwalks too this waisted look was hot. Will you try it?

Trend Report Fall/Winter 2012/2013: Hourglass chic

As a result of last season’s peplum hype this fall it is all about the accentuated waistline again. At Etro and Dior we still spotted some gorgeous peplums, yet other brands (Oscar de la Renta, Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada, Rodarte) created the same hourglass effect by  belting tops, jackets and even big winter coats.

This brings the waistbelt back in the picture after a few years of absence. And guess what, it’s getting bigger again. Sonia Rykiel and Victoria Beckham may still have opted for smaller belts, yet as seen at Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent (Saint Laurent Paris), Acne and Fendi big belts are back. Wear yours in a shade matching your outfit and create that elegant super feminine figure.
