A belt can be just the accessory an outfit needs, (literally) tying together all the different aspects of your ensemble and defining a flatteringly narrow point on your figure. So don’t just let the tail end hang there uselessly—use this tiny tweak to make it a focal point that will earn you extra style points:


Pull the tail of the belt through the clasp and buckle it as usual.


Loop the tail back up and underneath the belt. Then, fold the belt over the top and under itself again, making a simple knot.

Et voila! A super simple styling trick that provides the perfect finishing touch.
