Creating a waist: McQ Alexander McQueen Contoured patent-leather waist belt
Hands up, who suffers from a total lack of waist? I'm with you. I'm an apple shape, so I'm a little addicted to belts that give the impression of a waist to achieve that hourglass shape we all lust after.
Alexander McQueen championed the tiny wasp-waist this season with their prom dresses that nipped in at the waist and flared at the hips. So it's no surprise to see them add a patent-leather waist belt to their collection. The leather finish means you could wear it to add a rock chick edge to a black dress or wear over a white shirt and pencil skirt for work (with killer heels, obviously!)
The McQ Alexander McQueen Contoured patent-leather belt is £165 from Net-A-Porter. It's going straight on my wish list. I love the way the sides wing up, so you can wear it either way up depending on which way is most flattering.
How do you get that wasp-waist look?
