How to tie a sash belt

Using belts as a simple fashion accessory has become increasingly popular. Instead of being worn at the hips, belts are now commonly worn on the upper part of the waist (holding nothing up at all). Sash belts are worn in this fashion to emphasise the smallest part of the woman's body -- the area of the waist above the bellybutton. Wearing a sash belt at the empire waist increases the look of the bust line while slimming the waistline.

Instructions

    Simple tie

  1. 1

    Place the sash in the middle of your back and bring the ends of it around the front. Make sure that both sides of the sash are even.

  2. 2

    Place the right end of the sash over the left side of the sash.

  3. 3

    Pull the right end of the sash up through the middle so that the right side is directly on top of the left side. Pull tight so it stays securely on your waist.

  4. 4

    Place the left side on top of the right side and pull the end through the middle to make a knot.

  5. 5

    Place the knot in the middle or turn it so the knot rests on one side of your body.

    Bow arrangement

  1. 1

    Place the middle of the sash at the middle of your back and bring the ends around you to your front. Ensure that there is an equal amount of sash on either side of you.

  2. 2

    Pull the right end of the sash over the left end and pull it through the middle. The right side of the sash will be directly on top of the left side.

  3. 3

    Pull the two ends so the sash is tight. Holding the top portion of the sash the right side up -- using either your teeth to hold the sash up or placing it under an arm -- fold the left side of the sash into a loop.

  4. 4

    Place the right side of the sash over the looped left side, fold underneath it (towards the right) and pull it through the middle to form a bow.

  5. 5

    Pull the two looped bows together to tighten. Turn the sash so that the bow sits either directly in the middle of the back or towards one side of the body.
