Wanna look like a star? Zen College Life blogger Jemima Lopez tells you how with her special guest post. Take it away Jemima!
Girly, fun, feminine fashion is definitely all the rage for Spring 2012.
With the slouchiness and almost alien-looking trends of the past couple years, it is a breath of fresh air to see designers turning a more playfully sexy leaf this season.
One of the best ways to re-create these girlish silhouettes is to take a pencil skirt or a puffy mid-length skirt or dress and belt your waist tightly. Pair with a form-fitting top and heels, and head out the door.
The belted waist has a always given off a sex kitten vibe. Just look at Marilyn Monroe. Her iconic slim-fitting look from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes has become a metaphor for sexy.
For more inspiration, check out the very ladylike belted dresses rocked by Pippa Middleton and Taylor Swift (whose retro looks are gorgeous to behold at Stylebistro.com.) Recently, many models and celebrities have been by Whowhatwear.com sporting belts as integral parts of their looks too.
