Hello there,

It’s cold outside and almost beginning of February. Can anyone think of something else besides coffee, warm blankets and romantic movies? I’m getting you ready for looking absolutely amazing this Valentine’s Day with my four outfits that you should wear… and throw away your lounge wear! Put that dress on and your most loved high-heels and hit that date!

1. Go neutral & slay the date

Ready to look hot on your night out? If you’re going for drinks and then a unique place around your city (at least that’s what I enjoy rather than a standard dinner), then this Beige Bodycon Dress is exactly what you’re after. It’s a bit shimmery, so you’ll be glowing while celebrating your love. I have a feeling that your man will appreciate this outfit as well because it’s sexy and can give you a great confidence boost! It’s always about how a dress makes you feel, right? ❤️ Have the best night ever!

2. Queen of hearts

Option two is definitely for an exquisite location, so if you’re going to a luxury restaurant or a private event, a long dress is something you can absolutely consider. Feel on top of the world and ready to conquer his heart! What better occasion than Valentine’s Day to wear red? Call it a classic, but this Maxi Dress will guarantee you looking like a queen! Whatever you plan to do on the day, just remember that you have to shine and do what you can to do so. Enjoy your day to the fullest, girl!

3. Black outfit that sparks fire

Well, the outfit might not spark fire in the real world, but it will in people’s minds. This is a WOW factor outfit. It makes me think of a panther, moving slowly in the jungle, especially because it’s on the shoulder! I would consider a slick or wavy ponytail for this outfit as it will make you look super tall and chic. Thinking about places where you could actually wear this one, there are endless options. I would recommend you check their social media, not just their professional pictures on the website and see how the place looks like in real life. Have fun rocking this one!

4. For the sexy vibe lover

Not the dress type? Not to worry, I’ve got you covered. Why not jump out from the good old black jeans in exchange for some stylish leggings? I’m ‘guilty’ of embracing this trend, but I always ensure I wear them reasonably. Don’t go around wearing all fake leather please – keep it within reason. I believe a nice mix can be done with a white top (this was actually a dress I used as a top) and faux leather leggings – so let’s think have fun a little bit! This look would be perfect for going dancing, cinema or even cocktails. Keep it fun, keep it you!

Tip for choosing your outfits

When choosing your outfit, do your research first. Please don’t yawn at the sound of this! Look up the place on social and always check what other people have posted on Instagram geotagging that location. You don’t want to end up underdressed! I didn’t say overdressed, because I don’t believe in that! There’s no such thing as overdressed – I know that from one of the most stylish women I know, my beautiful mother. So, look at other people’s pictures and who knows, you can even find your picture spot beforehand.

Have a look at www.femmeluxefinery.co.uk and browse through their collection. They have so many other awesome dresses on show at such a good price as well! I totally recommend them as you can pick & choose your dresses for different occasions without costing you a fortune for just one night. I don’t know about you but I don’t like wearing a dress more than once every two months, so I don’t feel like investing in pieces to wear once in a while.

Thank you very much for stopping by! I know you’ll have an absolutely fantastic Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget, it’s about enjoying who you are and appreciating your loved one for always supporting you when you kick-ass, because it’s so important to have someone who understands and cheers when you have success.

Until next time,

Not A Girly Gal

 

Hello girls,

How have you been? I’ve been enjoying London’s little treasures lately as I feel really festive as Christmas is just around the corner! On this note, I have teamed up with Adriana  to give you some good business and styling advice that you can trust to follow going forward in 2019. Make the most out of it!

not a girly gal adriana style.jpg

Andrada: Hi, Adriana! Thank you for joining me today in this pretty location and thank you for the Salted Caramel Macaron tip – it’s delicious. The reason why I picked you to give us insight into these is because you’re really successful with your own business and breaking it into online courses! First of all, what is your blog about and why did you decide to go into blogging?

Adriana: Since I was a little girl I wanted to be a model however as I didn’t fulfil the necessary conditions I didn’t follow this path. My dreams however stayed in my mind unrealized. Years later I’ve discovered that I can combine my passion for fashion and photography into a fashion & lifestyle blog. Now, I can say that this was the best present I could give to myself. I present a variety of my own fashion style, fashion tips, product reviews, healthy recipes etc. to please my readers.

DSC_0014.JPG

Andrada: That’s absolutely amazing. Congratulations for following your dream and working towards it no matter what! I feel that women need to motivate themselves and be their biggest supporters, even when no one is! Could you give us one piece of advice for a woman starting her own business now?

Adriana: Thank you, Andrada! You’re right! When you start your own business you fear that no-one would buy anything from you, no-one cares about it, no-one is interested, the competition is high and it’s not worth the hassle but these are only the unnecessary thoughts you say to yourself. Don’t doubt in yourself, just follow your dreams and believe that you’re worth everything but good in your life. We attract what we think of, so stay positive. Always.

not a girly gal.jpg

Andrada: Who is your role model? What inspires you?

Adriana: It may sound strange but I aim to inspire and motivate myself at all times. I don’t have a role model, I don’t compare myself to others, competitors, top bloggers. I prefer a healthy balance in life, I choose to be me, be positive, unique and true.

Andrada: That’s great! I love how positive you are – I see a great strength in you and I am happy that you’re thinking that way. Talking about fashion now, as we’re going towards the colder season, what items do you recommend women to wear and what are your top 3 items?

Adriana: I cannot imagine cooler season of autumn/winter without a comfortable warm boots, a nice colour coat and accessories that are not to be missed like a wooly hat, scarf and gloves. I always aim to pick a colourful coat and hats as a stylist and a woman I believe we should add more colour into our outfits as it simply improves our mood. My today’s outfit is a great example of this statement. Don’t you agree? You can find me on social media or my blog. Lots of love lovelies and have an amazing festive season!

Andrada: Thank you Adriana for joining me today and I wish you the best of luck with your blogging business! ☺️

Connect with Adriana on: Instagram, Facebook  and blog.

Hello there,

We’re quickly getting closer to the festive season. As you might guess, I’m excited to feel the frosty air, drink mulled wine and spend the holidays in a really cosy atmosphere. It’s my favourite time of the year! Since I love the season this much I always plan my outfits early to avoid the disappointment of ‘out of stock’ items or just because I prefer not to rush with my decisions. I’ve put together a beautiful collection of festive dresses that you can trust to look amazing in, while you’re enjoying your holiday time. Get the most out of this period of time, just before half of December to ensure you’ll have your outfits ready for the festive events.

Red all the way

Jazz, champagne and a great dancing party. That’s what this dress makes me dream of. Great for the New Year’s Eve, the Red Bardot dress promises a night to remember. The cleavage is just right, making you look sexy without making you look cheap (I could elaborate on the look that we shouldn’t go for, but I’ll just stop here and focus on what looks better from my perspective). I love a to wear red at parties and quite frankly I always remember my statement looks throughout the years. My philosophy is: if you can make an impression, why not? Go for a dress that makes you feel in control, super ready to shine and one that will bring great memories. Have the best New Year Party ever!

White Winter Dream

Such a beautiful piece! This White Midi Dress is simple and really elegant. You’ll feel classy while decorating the carefully picked Christmas tree with the most exquisite decorations. The sleeves are gently falling off shoulders and the upper part of the dress, reveals your bone structure. Now think about your Christmas pictures as well – they will be different and much more likely to be remembered as you’ll be dressed just like a white winter dream. Only picture yourself lighting the fire and sipping champagne while your favourite Christmas carols are on. Red and white are my favourite colours to wear during the season. They might be classic, but they make me feel in line with the atmosphere.

The perfect dresses for the festive season not a girly gal femme luxury.jpg

Wear this dress with nude high heels to ensure the attention won’t be drawn from the dress itself. Since the dress has a simple cut, you can wear with black fringe sandals and a glittery bag! You’ll feel absolutely amazing.

Red Fringes

This dress is so Jenifer Lopez! I’m sure she’d wear this style – short and super fiesta vibes. I’ve never tried a similar dress before, so I thought New Year’s can be the perfect occasion to do so. I always feel that a special occasion, calls for something different. Don’t you? The fit of the dress is bodycon, flattering your curves rather than doing the opposite. I think that’s a benefit you’re getting with this dress. If you love to dance salsa or any other type of genre, the dress will look fabulous on while you dance the night away. Just make sure you have someone taking some pictures of you during the dance. They might turn out amazing! I would wear this dress for a friend gathering party or at a cocktail bar.

When it comes to shoes, you need to keep them classy because the dress is already doing a lot for you. So, no need for glitter or any statement shoes – let them take the back seat if you’re choosing to wear this dress.

Hope I helped you think about your xmas & party dresses early and start browsing through some pieces that you might have found of interest. May all your dreams for the coming year be fulfilled and may you have the happiest festive season. You can browse the Femme Luxe Finery collection here and pick the best ones for you.

What type of content would you like to see on the blog going forward? Please let me know in the comment section, so I can have a better understanding of things you’d like me to cover in my posts. Do you enjoy seeing outfit options rather than only one outfit?

Hello everyone,

So happy to have you here today. We’re talking about one topic that is not covered so much on the fashion blogosphere: What to wear at work?! Tricky subject for me as I started working in the marketing industry last year, but I’m acing the subject as I go along. Keep on reading to find out how you can feel your best when dressed a bit more professional!

Tip number one: You need to find your own professional style by trying  various styles

Dress me in a corporate dress and I’ll feel weird for the whole day. I wouldn’t feel powerful in a standard dress and flats. For me, that’s just not going to work out. I tried everything: from simple dresses to jeans and blazers… and I got BORED! My industry is relaxed when it comes to office dressing because I work in an agency, so I don’t have to wear business attire. I do however feel that if I dress casual all the time, I just don’t feel stylish. I’d say I perfected my daily office look in time, so I recommend trying different options until you find something you feel comfortable with.

Tip number two: Pick pieces appropriate for your age

The last thing you want is looking like you’re not your age. This applies to looking underaged or overaged. A blouse that is too serious for your age can work in your disadvantage. Instead, pick items that represent you: asymmetric earrings and fun blouses are perfect if you’re anywhere between 20-25+! Zara and Mango have a great selection of ‘office’ attire and it’s not boring at all! In fact, you can find the Zara blouse here and the Mango skirt here.

Tip number three: Skirts and high heels

Skirts will make you look more feminine and professional. Consider wearing heels if you’re attending meetings, especially if you’re the one leading them: they will empower you. I found mine in Zara, but you can probably shop the high street for a similar pair – I really love the geometric heel on these. I don’t really enjoy wearing tights, so let me give you a piece of advice: it’s always better to go one size higher than struggling all day to pull them up. You can find these in Zara too – they are so comfy (I got mine in S, 120 den).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Besides all the outfit tips, I think the most important thing to wear when you go to work is confidence: speak with confidence and always believe in your power to succeed and do amazing things. Your outfit is there to support your personality, so it has to match!

Hello ladies and gentlemen (who love Instagram I suppose),

Welcome to the first November post on the blog. Before I go on into the topic, I would like to thank you for constantly reading and engaging with my blog. It’s been a nice journey since a year now and it continues to be so because of youJ  Today, we’re talking about the one social giant: Instagram. Ever wondered why the pictures don’t get the results you’re after? I have experienced with the platform for a while now, so let’s see what you can do to get the return you deserve.

Really briefly put: Instagram is a visual platform, so all your posts have to look different and have something cool about them. I’ll explore what works from a ‘like’ grabbing perspective and give you some good examples of what you can do to step up your game.

Tip 1: Your eye for design needs to be present in all shots

Let’s say you post about healthy food recipes. The soup you just cooked might be looking great, but that is not going to get you popular if you don’t take the extra step and turn your kitchen into a photo shoot location. Or, let’s say you’re a fashion blogger (like me) and want to show some accessories – you need to get creative and turn your bed into your like grabbing location. Have some props ready: in Autumn you can have little pumpkins, nuts or even leaves you picked up to make your flat lays a wonder. I guarantee they’ll grab attention! I know that these little small details can cost you time and sometimes even money as some of these need to be purchased, but if you really want it, you have to play the game.

IMG_4005

Tip 2: Location is the true king

They say that content is king. I say location is the true king. Sometimes, I mean most of the times, in the first second, even before they’ve even read your caption, the audience will make a quick unconscious decision: to like or to scroll further. You might have written the most inspiring copy, but if the picture will not do the trick, your engagement might be low. We won’t let that happen because that’s where we get smart. It’s that second you have to grab their attention… without screaming ‘I try too hard’. So, choose your pictures’ location wisely. After you’ve exhausted all the cute brunch places in your city, think about the story you want to tell with your outfits. For a dreamy outfit choose a flower wall, for a Steet style vibe go take pictures on busy traffic streets or supermarkets, you get my drift. Make sure your location is extremely Instagramable. Take my supermarket picture example below: my location is interesting; the composition is dynamic, and the outfit is Insta worthy too. You might say ‘Andrada, but this is shallow, what if my content is spot on?’ I’ve got only one answer: the location needs to match too. After all, vanity is shallow too, but advertising industry is built on it; and Instagram serves as an advertising tool for your business. So, you have to fearlessly compete with others to make your account stand out, tell a compelling story, bag those extra likes and start new collaborations. Every little effort helps in building that big brand of that you’re dreaming about. You can do this!

 Tip 3: Constantly engage with other users

Whilst your content and pictures rule the Gram, you have to remember that you’re part of a community. It’s not the time or place to become self-obsessed. It’s the other users who interact with your page that will make you truly popular. Ask yourself these questions: am I commenting on other people’s profile constantly? Am I receiving a positive response at my posts and Instagram Stories? Are users also commenting on my pictures? Try to work out an answer to these and work as much as you can to gain engagement from your audience. It’s the only way to grow. Posting your pictures shouldn’t be the only activity you engage in on Instagram. Get social and you’ll grow your page!

Are you feeling inspired to grow your page and put a little more effort into the shots you’re taking? Let me know what tricks you have to grow your page –  I would love to see them all! 💋

The wonders of London Fashion Week. By day 2 my feet were hurting like never before. What have I done? I was asking myself. I stuck my foot in that stiletto boot because I wanted to be on time for my first show the night before. My toes were so numb the next day – my body was feeling just a bit tired, but I really wanted to do Day 2. I’ve put on some natural make-up, my Fenty Pumas and walked out my door. Keep on reading to find out exactly what to wear to make the most of this week!

What to wear at London Fashion Week

In terms of what to actually wear the events, I highly recommend shoes that you can walk around in, queue in and most importantly feel just a bit comfortable in (cause we all know high heeled comfortable shoes are just so hard to find).  I chose to wear my Pumas in day 2 because my feet were killing me (I had my toes numb for 2-3 weeks after just 4 hours in heels the day before). You can opt for boots, pumas, low heeled sandals or even high heels if you’re convinced they are bearable.

Depending on the event’s nature, you can decide whether you want your outfit to be casual chic or a bit more elegant. I am not the type of person to be walking around in a wedding attendant’s dress, so please don’t go overboard! I’ve seen it all! Below is the outfit that I wore during day 2 and it got a lot of people noticing it and loving it – it fully represents me. Always go for something that represents you: remember that you’re not there to adhere to a dress code, but rather to express yourself and network with people just like you. That’s how you do proper networking and actually enjoy the day; just put your best self forward and approach people next to you.

What to wear at London Fashion Week

Hair and make-up? Whatever makes you happy 🙂

Do have a look at Day 1 outfit and get a closer look at what can go or not during LFW.

Let’s see how Day 2 went by, shall we? I regrouped with my lovely Saffy and some cool girls we met the day before and started the day! That’s what I love about Fashion Week – you get to know people once and throughout the days, you keep bumping into them. It’s just great – you know how much I love chatting over champagne or cocktails!

First Stop: The Rohmir SS19 Show

Ah the goose bumps because of the amazing ballet on French music! When Si tu n’existe pas started my mood was lifted: I was so happy to watch their performance. I was already in a good mood when the models started the catwalk. My favourite outfit? I can’t pick one! I was in love with the big gowns & crowns and the over-sized knots over tops.

The colour palette was a mix of nude colours and browns, but also quite contrasting, the models were wearing baby pink and bright navy blue. I feel like navy blue was super popular on the cat walks. I think I saw it more than black! Can you imagine? What made a statement in her shows were also the hair and make-up.

Where can you wear the new collection?

  • Cocktail parties
  • Award Nights
  • Weddings

 

Rosella May Presentation

A casual vibe was dominating the room – models were taking instant pictures and casually walking to the bar to get refreshments. It was almost a feeling of interacting with the actors in their break. The models kept things professional and did an amazing job in introducing us to the vibes.

White was dominant in Rosella May’s showcase. The splashes of paints had an amazing impact on the clothes. It was almost like breaking the pattern and adding a layer of fun to the casual clothes. The collection made me get myself a pair of dungarees – my first pair actually as I never worn one – funny right?

I loved how the make-up was complementing the colour splashes I talked to you about. It made me see the art behind this collection.

My favourite part?

The presentation was very well thought through – the picture wall was amazing because it was interactive; fresh pictures taken on camera were pinned to the wall which I found super original.

I hope you got a good view of what you can wear at London Fashion Week and that you’re super ready for next season! Hope to see you there 🙂

Thank you very much Pop PR for having me at Fashion Week this season.

Until next time,

No meetings on the calendar, no events you need to attend but the one that you organise for yourself: a relaxing day where you do just what you want! I recently had one of those and I picked to attend the London Cocktail festival, eat Italian and spend some time at the cool bars at the Shard. For that day I wore something else, but for days when I just have a walk or enjoy my time outside, I have my favourite outfit that I will share with you today. So, what should you wear to make the best out of your casual day?

Shape the season in style

It’s not huge news that everyone goes wild on layering in Autumn. Whilst I feel that layering is important and gives that umpf to your outfit (yes, umpf), I like to keep the layering to a minimum on casual days. Two layers is enough for me to feel like I’m in control of my outfit and nothing will be falling off. Do you ever have that feeling that your three-layer outfit looks good only if you wear it in three layers? What I mean by this is: if I decide to lose one layer during the day because it’s too warm, I feel I destroyed the whole concept. Rest assured, that doesn’t mean I don’t wear layers but I’m just more cautious with it; that type of making sure the outfit is still looking snatched. Take your wardrobe on the layering adventure in times when you’re feeling up for it.

What to wear on a casual day?

Nothing says casual more than a vintage denim shirt! Don’t you think so? It says: I’m relaxed, but super pretty. Taken from a charity shop three years ago, this shirt is my number one love for casual days. So, shop the thrift shops for goodies that last.

Miss Andrada What to wear on a casual day

Obviously if going for a walk you need something comfy on top of that; as I’m not a massive fan of hoodies and the only one I own is a university branded one, I opted for a vest. It’s my shepherd vest which I love to bits. If anyone has a comment, I just say ‘I’m a shepherd’ and it makes people laugh. Fashion is fun and it’s all about embracing what you love to wear. I would recommend you to be confident and take a stand for the things you want to wear even though they might seem unusual to people. Who cares? It’s you who wears the clothes and if you decide to be fun, then be it.

Miss Andrada What to wear on a casual day

Consider the fact that if you do quite a bit of walking, your shoes need to comply to the standards. I live in my boots and you know it, but whatever is comfy for you but also makes you feel put together, it’s worth wearing. I’ll let you choose trainers for this – I think it’s the only occasion when I think you can get away with it, besides the gym.

Accessories wise, just keep them to a minimum if you’re looking for comfort. A watch that compliments the outfit and has that ‘borrowed from the boys’ look will make your appearance relaxed, but also stylish. The Obaku Viol Granite watch gives me that feeling of I didn’t put too much effort into looking amazing, but I do. It’s that Swedish minimalist design that makes me absolutely love wearing it.

I hope this outfit gave you a quick look into a casual chic outfit for a day out and about. It was mental health awareness day and I believe the best way of celebrating it is to take time for yourself. A relaxed day where you plan to do exactly what you absolutely love doing is the perfect escape from things that stress us every day. Now that you have the right outfit for it, what are you waiting for?

Hello my gorgeous ladies,

Autumn has arrived with its rusty leaves, heavy raindrops, pumpkin spice lattes, candles, but also beautiful knitwear that you can happily wear while strolling around the city. The best news is that you can start wearing your soft knits and skirts together! It’s the perfect combination, which you can only embrace during this time of the year. Get ready to get my best tips on how to wear cropped knitwear in Autumn 2018 and get your outfits to the next level. Grab your hot drink now … and let’s look into it.

Cowl Neck Cropped jumper Crazy about Autumn colours? Amazing! There’s no better time to start wearing mustard tones, grey, dark orange or nude shades. It’s the first time when I embrace Autumn and I’m excited about everything it brings. I can’t believe the colder months will very soon come upon us, but that’s the perfect excuse to start wearing gorgeous knitwear pieces. My top picks right now? The amazing Femme Luxe knitwear collection! Femme Luxe proposes us a new way to embrace the cold season, walking us through the fall and winter’s must haves right on their collection page.

Take me to Paris Outfit

This outfit is so romantic, hence the Paris reference in the title. Imagine wearing this while on a Seine cruise followed by a picnic near the Eiffel Tower on a late September afternoon. Don’t you love dreaming about places you can wear your outfits to? (Until you get there of course).

Femme Luxe Mustard Front Twist Jumper

As you know, I am always looking for upgrading my outfits in a way or another. The stars of this outfit are the Femme Luxe Mustard Front Twist Jumper and the New Look Leather Skirt.  Let me tell you, the jumper is so comfortable and keeps me really warm even if it’s cropped. You should definitely check out their website as their items have amazing prices and great quality. I feel that while we still can, we should wear more crop tops as we don’t have to wrap ourselves in bulky jumpers now!

These pieces look amazing together – and from my point of view it wouldn’t look complete without the white shirt underneath the jumper. You can rock this outfit with heeled boots or over the knee boots for feeling sexy.  Overall, this outfit is giving me Gossip Girl vibes.

Femme Luxe Mustard Front Twist Jumper

Quick Styling Tips: Add cool accessories to your autumn outfits because you’ll make wonderful outfits that stand out a lot! I went for a mustard New Look hairband which goes perfectly with the Femme Luxe jumper. I feel that some portrait earrings would have been a cool addition too.

Autumn Glow Outfit

This one if for those sunny days in Autumn where you wake up rather late and decide to go out for a walk. I’m usually very busy on weekends with blog work to juggle and any socialising I’m planning to do. However, I love the idea of an Autumn walk where you recharge after a busy week. And us fashionistas, can’t live without a cute outfit, so why not put our best skills forward to dress up for any occasion, especially when it’s the weekend and we got that extra time?

Femme Luxe Cowl Neck Cropped jumper 

What makes this outfit more casual and street style is the leather jacket on top. I love pairing a cropped jumper with autumn skirts and the Cowl Neck Cropped jumper goes so well in this combination. The jumper is really comfy and its long sleeves make me love it. The New Look checked skirt‘s colours are just perfect for the jumper and ah the belt detail makes me go crazy about this outfit. Add a pair of sunglasses and honey, you’re ready to shine.

Quick Styling Tip: You want your skirt to be body con when you’re wearing loose jumpers. I’m starting love wearing Autumn outfits, can’t you tell?

Here they are…the two outfits that will soon become my go to outfits for this season. I really hope that you found inspiration in today’s post and that you’ll be soon getting your knits on Femme Luxe.

Hello there,

Choosing your cream trench coat means that you’ll spend a bit of time researching magazines, fashion blogs and perhaps Instagram. I’ll spare you the search. Either you’re getting your Autumn outfits ready for the season or you’re getting your hands on pieces that will make a statement for you this season, this post will show you how to choose your statement trench coat which is a must-have for me.

  1. Look at the overall appearance of the trench

 I’ve seen different types of coats. The fabric can either ‘make or break’ a coat. Make sure your fabric looks of high-quality and it’s thick enough. Waterproof material is an added plus of course, especially if you live in London. Stay away from sheer fabric because not only it won’t keep you warm, but it will look cheap.

TIP: Try the coat on and if it feels heavy, then that’s the one you want.

  1. Decide on a good length for you

Depending on where you want your cream coat to fall, you want to make sure the length is good for your height. For me, I wanted it to be really long as almost all my outdoor wear is shorter. If you’re looking for a long one too, just make sure your boots can be seen, otherwise you’ll look short.

TIP: Don’t try it on with high heels unless you’re only going to wear it with high heels.

  1. Look out for features that make it special

Now, the fun part! You want to make a statement – pick items that have cool features. The feature that makes this cream coat stand out is the sleeve detail. Some coats can have badges or stickers. Others can have a cool chain on the top part. It’s up to your personal preference here.

TIP: Look for your coat in unique places such as clothes markets or even vintage stores. Gems are hiding there. That’s how I found mine.

  1. Add a leather belt

 Replace the boring strap with a brown leather belt. The belt will give your coat a nice proportion – tight on your waist and loose on the bottom. You will look impeccable!

TIP: Choose a medium width belt. Too narrow – it won’t have the desired effect; too wide – it will be too much.
