I am all about a good cardigan. When it is oversized, super soft, and a neutral color, well count me in! This gorgeous Free People cardigan is  one you will find yourself reaching for over and over again.  I have worn it with hunters, sneakers and today I dressed it up with a simple black pump.

Statement belts are a big trend this season and I have gotten so many questions about the sizing on this particular Gucci belt! I searched for this beauty for months and came across one last month and snatched it up. I googled all over the internet to find out how the sizing was and read so many mixed reviews. Ordering anything online can be frustrating if you do not know how the sizing runs, so here are my tips!

How they are measured?- Gucci measures their belts with them fastened on the middle hole, so they are bigger than the actual measurement listed.

What size did I purchase?– I purchased the 85(34 inch) and it was too big. It was the only size available, so I did not really have another option. For Reference, I typically wear a 25 in jeans, sometimes a 26.

Can a belt that is too big be fixed?– YES! Take your belt to a reputable cobbler and they should be able to cut it off and/or add holes to it. I had a hole added to mine so I could wear it up higher on my waist and how about 2-3 inches cut off. I did not mind the tail end of the belt being longer, but it was a bit odd once I wore it around my waist, so I had it cut off a bit.

Where can I find one?– I suggest going to a local Gucci store and talk to a sales associate or keep your eye on Saks or the Gucci site.  Currently the oversized one is available HERE and other colors HERE.

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions, please let me know!

Have a great day and see you back here tomorrow!
