The Indonesian government certainly thinks so- by organizing Indonesia Fashion Week, or IFW they hope to transform Indonesia into the...

Of all the latest fashion trends for Spring 2012, none is bigger than super fun, colorful jeans. From pretty pastel shades to saturated, crayon-box brights, it seems that this season, women are looking for more than just a basic pair of broken-in blues. And with this extra jolt of color in your wardrobe comes the opportunity to experiment with belts in ways that you may not have dreamed of before.

Everyone knows the age old rule, “you can’t wear white after Labor Day.”

Petite ladies like Ashely Olsen and Rachel Zoe use wide belts to create shape to their figure. Full-figure women will also love a big, bold, belt because it instantly cinches the waist for a sexy hourglass figure.

 

Besides shape-enhancing, big waist belts also bring interest to an outfit. Drew...
