Would You Wear a Belt Over Your Sweater?

Belts are popping up on more than a few runways. But rather than holding up high waisted trousers, for S/S '08 they're holding otherwise open coats

Belts are popping up on more than a few runways. But rather than holding up high waisted trousers, for S/S '08 they're holding otherwise open coats and cardigans closed. We first noticed this look on the Proenza runway, and yesterday Christopher Bailey showed it at Burberry for nearly every outfit. This weekend we noticed a belt over an open animal print cardigan in the window of J.Crew in Rockefeller Center, so maybe the look is here to stay. We've experimented at home but can't seem to get the proportions right. Is it because our torso isn't as long as Agyness's? Or is there a trick to making this layered look streamlined enough for everyday wear? We'll keep trying but what about you? Would you wear it? How? --BRITT ABOUTALEB
