Belts have made a big comeback in the last year or so, and particularly bold, statement belts that transform a relatively simple look into something really special. And because of that, we thought this would be a great topic for a blog post. So, without further ado, we are going to share a few of our favorite belts with you AND we are also going to share some fun looks to give those of you that are constantly wondering about belts some ideas on how to wear!
Of course, we all love the quintessential Gucci belt. You know the one…. But have you seen it in this gorgeous dusty pink leather color??!
There are also so many fun belts out there right now that feature fun creatures – snakes, lizards, and how about this stunning bee belt by Raina?
We fell in love with this Tory Burch reversible belt the moment we saw it – so much bang for your buck! Even though it’s expensive, you get two gorgeous belts in one – a luscious royal blue and rich brown leather…
These beautiful wrap belts by Ada have been around for years and are a tried and true for us.
How to Wear
Now let’s have some fun and style each of our favorite belts, shall we?! Let’s start with the Gucci Double G Leather Belt.
As we transition into fall, cutoffs continue to be a staple in our closets. This belt would be so fabulous with any number of looks with your favorite cutoffs, but how about with a fun tank and this pretty snakeskin kimono?!? How pretty would the dusty pink leather of the belt be peeking out from underneath this kimono?! Take your pick of shoes…. flats (these Free People ones are an absolute go-to for all of our stylists!), high top sneakers (another go-to for us), backless heeled mules – all fabulous! Top it all off with a simple pair of ear climbers and gold bangles, and you are effortlessly chic.
The Bee Belt
Popover dresses are everywhere right now…. Obviously, we love them “as is” but for a different, more tailored look, belt it! And Raina’s bee belt is perfect with this animal print popover beauty from J. Crew that is absolutely perfect for transitioning into fall. One of the fun things about a dress is picking your shoes, right?!? The options are endless with this one…. A great pair of mules…. A fun notched ankle bootie…. LOVE this two toned espadrille for early fall…. And even a heeled bootie if you are getting more dressed up. Add some simple earrings and a fun bracelet stack.
The Reversible Belt
LOVE the look of a straight skirt with a belt at the waist. So classic, and just oh so feminine. Show off the royal blue side of the belt with this gorgeous black plaid skirt with royal blue piping at the hemline. Pair with a simple ivory tank, and if you are chilly, throw on a jean jacket! Accessorize with some bold gold earrings and a tiered chain necklace. Again, SO many shoe options, but we love these black quilted sling backs (swoon) for a more classic look, as well as these fun utility booties for an edgier vibe. And of course, you cannot ever go wrong with some fun sneakers these days!
The Wrap Belt
This wrap belt would also be fabulous with a skirt or dress, but we are styling it with jeans for you! Insider tip on wearing this belt with jeans ~ pull it through the loopholes in the back and let it sit on top of the loopholes on the sides and front! LOVE these cap sleeve t-shirts with a subtle sheen by Michael Stars – perfect to wear alone or under a fun jacket. Pair this pale pink shirt with some skinny jeans and the wrap belt – add a fun moto jacket as we transition into fall and the evenings become cooler. For the shoes, think snakeskin and animal print to add a fun pop of pattern! And the icing on the cake? These mini madeline pretties!
