Fashion Layering (Don't)

Can't believe this styling tip!  Who has a waistline that high?

 

Layering 101  Create a waistline with a belt!  Cuff your jeans to reveal another layer.

What's worse is that they've been showing that picture on the home page in various locations for at least a week now.  I feel for that poor model.  She's so pretty and they put her in that horrible get-up.

There was a thread calling out the styling of this sweater.  The stylist got it wrong in this case.

I don't know what to say, I think the model looks good, but the belt placed that high above the natural waist is odd. Maybe, because of the models girth that was the best place for the belt.

As I said in the other thread about this.  If they loose the belt, put a denim or white blouse with it.  It would be a cute SW look.  The main thing is that belt under her armpits is just awful.

I think the problem is exacerbated by the fact that the sweater is somewhat poncho-like, which makes the extra fabric bunch up on the sides around the belt.

I'm no anatomy expert, but if that's where her waistline is, where is her bustline?  Then her neck would be where? Sorry, it's just not a flattering look for anyone.
