Perhaps one of the most underrated accessories to grace our wardrobes, belts happen to be the most versatile statement fashion pieces. Be it a classic leather belt or a thin n’ skinny style; a good belt might just be the finishing touch you need.
Spring Summer 2021 is seeing the resurgence of the belts. And though cinchers have been around for a while, this statement accessory marks its statement return this season! Leather, chain, obi style to horse-shoe buckle and monogram, belts are all the rave on the runway and a favourite among the celebs. With a year spent dressing waist up, what better time to loop into this trend as you strap on to life post-pandemic?
Before getting started, why not brush up on the waist ways?
A good belt can help put together any look with ease, from returning to the office to vacay ready looks. Here are a few easy-breezy examples of how to belt it right this season:
#1 Cinch a studded belt to add a bit of allure to a simple flowy dress look à la SJP. A great mix of feminine meets edgy.
Pair with: Flatter Me Belt Studs for a wow factor.
#2 Or add a lace-up belt to a romantic, oversized tunic, like Krystle D’souza. Straight out of a movie vibe for sure!
Pair with: Cinch Tight Ring to add a lil bit o’ flare.
#3 Balance play of colours like Kylie Minogue with an oversized black mid-waist belt. For extra drama, opt for colour blocking.
#4 Take notes from Lady Gaga in creating contrast in a belt with some tough hardware. Chain belt on a classic LBD sure makes a killer combo!
Pair with: Link N Cinch Drops to match your vibe.
#5 For the ones that want to channel their inner fashionista, a monogram buckle belt might just be the answer! Louis Vuitton had models strutting about this season all decked up in eye-catching checkered straps complete with the house logo for the buckle.
#6 Pair a beige belt on all black like Sonam Kapoor for that subtle, poised contrast.
Pair with: Wrap A Sash Ring for some artful bling.
#7 Like Scar Jo, elevate a trouser-based look in a cincher with a gold buckle for some extra edge. Added points if it’s a western horse-shoe buckle!
#8 Some layered belts with a play in texture can help set the outfit apart for coordinated sets. Shruti Hassan has her sash game on point with a layered black croc belt to compliment her all-white ensemble.
Pair with: To Be Obi Pendant for some layering fun.
