How to Salvage a Too-Long Belt

pencil-belt_300A stylish thin belt that fits just right with trousers may be too big to wear at your waist over a dress or cardigan—but that doesn’t mean you have to buy the often-pricey accessory in two different sizes.

Instead, try this trick from celebrity stylist Kimmy Erin: Slide your belt through the buckle, past the holes. Then, move the prong to the side, and affix double-sided fabric tape ($4, to keep it in place. (Note: This does not work on suede or skins.) Hello, more closet space and outfit options!
