5 Belts Every Girl Should Own


When it comes to styling, the icing on every fabulous ensemble is the accessories that adorn it. With winter still in progress  it’s all about layers, and the right collection of belts is ultra-crucial to pulling off a seamless look. Not only can the right belt accentuate your body's natural curves, but this simple addition has the power to turn a little black dress into a fabulously decorated canvas. Ready to step up your belt collection, but not sure which styles to invest in? Below is my fashion guide to the five belts every girl should own.

 Classic

This belt is a no brainer. Every girl should possess a classic black and brown belt. Whether you pair it with casual denim or career trousers, this belt is an accessory staple. This is also the best investment piece when it comes to belts, so don’t feel guilty for spending a little extra when adding this classic piece to your wardrobe.

Animal-Inspired

When it comes to recurring winter trends, animal-inspired prints are always at the top of the list. Avoid going full animal kingdom and give a subtle nod to this trend with a killer belt. Whether you go with leopard print or a faux snake skin, this animal inspired must-have can jazz up dresses, skirts and pants, while pairing perfectly with winter's warm color palette.

Woven
As a self-proclaimed dress fanatic, I can’t stress the importance of a woven belt enough. This style is best when tied to add styling flair to your ensemble. I suggest sticking with brown or tan to ensure its versatility. And the best part... the unlimited sizing options allow for the ideal fit whether you wear it around your natural waist or your hips.

 Bright and Bold

Looking to spice up a simple dress for a girls' night out? A bright belt can make a major impact with minimal styling efforts. Since color trends change with each season, be budget-conscious with this purchase. I always suggest investing in a medium to small width. Since the eye-catching color is sure to stand out, be conscious of where you place it on your body, to avoid unwanted attention.

Wide
A simple yet powerful wide belt is best showcased when placed on empire waist dresses or for creating shape when wearing a shift dress. The extra size makes it ideal for taming bulkier pieces like a cargo jacket. Invest in a wide belt and you’re sure to have unlimited styling options. To add an extra dash of style, layer this belt over a chunky faux fur vest.

  13. Love the fuchsia & orange belt combo on your pic! I absolutely think that belts are some of the best accessories to an outfit, it adds structure to any any outfit, it accentuates your waist and it can be a perfect tool to add a pop of color!.. I have been very much into the wide belts lately, they are great to break down dresses or skirts at the waist.

  81. Wide belts are pretty much my favorite accessory, right after shoes of course. They're so useful, especially for me, since my clothes all have to fit my hips or chest in, which leaves my waist completely hidden. If I could find them easily, I'd have a full-blown wide belt addiction on my hands.
