Some people think belts are just for holding up pants or giving shape to a loose garment, but there are fun things to do with a belt if it’s treated as an accessory to an outfit. Ladies belts are available from Style&co., Fossil and Lauren Ralph Lauren in many different colors, textures and styles, so now is a great time to start a collection.
Leather is often the standby when it comes to great looks and durability, but instead of a flat shaped belt in a smooth texture, why not try a woven belt? The texture from the weave adds lots of interest to whatever outfit it’s worn with, and the woven pattern is a great offset to metallic buckles, studs and other shimmering accents. A popular choice for wearing with jeans is a leather weave belt with a brass-tone C-ring buckle.
Ladies belts come in a great choice of bright colors too, and are easily coordinated to almost any outfit. Skinny belts are versatile because they blend in and disappear if matched to the outfit color, or stand out while creating an hourglass shape if they are a contrasting color. Try a white textured sweater and white linen pants, and give shape to the outfit with a solid color belt like bright red or blue accented with a shiny mixed metal buckle.
A wide belt is often a good choice for evening attire or to give shape to a dress or skirt and is also a nice choice for women who love a bit of retro style. Wider belts are usually made of a stretchable material so they conform to the shape of the body and are comfortable to wear. A black leather belt with a metallic buckle might be the perfect finishing touch to a peasant style top and swirly skirt.
Need a nice belt to wear with that slinky black evening dress? A lightweight and delicate chain belt might be perfect to accent the waist and complement other jewelry worn. Look for a small chain with round or square links in a silver or gold tone metal and wear it with a pair of metallic flats to match. Some designs include interesting details like a dog leash closure or decorative key chains that dangle from the belt.
