A lot of items that have a great print—old caftans or robes, say — might not have the best shape to them. I often fix that by experimenting with folding and belting the waistline. When a dress is too large around the middle, I’ll frequently fold it over itself and use a belt to secure it, giving it a nice nipped-in look with great movement. I’m not so into wide belts lately, but skinny belts aren’t great at holding this look together. Solution? I layer two or three skinny belts together.
