Feminine Finish: Belts for Summer and Beyond

When it comes to go-to accessories, the belt is a must-have for every wardrobe. Skinny or wide, braided or buckled, a great belt accessory is able to serve many purposes – and can be worn with almost any outfit. As the single most versatile addition to your closet, belts are the easiest way to enhance your silhouette, add instant interest to a look or take an ensemble from casual to dramatic. Whether you prefer a classic style or something with a little more flair, these belts offer glamour for all seasons.

It’s a Cinch

When wanting to cinch your waist and draw attention to your curves, there’s no better way than with a leather belt accessory. Chic and timeless, these designs are all about a polished effect. Opt for a narrow version for a more subtle illusion or a wide number to create separation.

Ties that Bind

The belt doesn’t have to buckle to be accessory gold. If traditional styles don’t offer the fluidity you crave, try a sash or obi. These options create a softer, more feminine look and pair perfectly with pieces that feature flowing fabric.
