How often do you think about belts? Once a week? Maybe only once a month? They might not be popular these days thanks to the advent of spandex, but they’re still a vital part of an everyday wardrobe. A cute belt can add a pop of color to a neutral ensemble or cinch an oversized pair of trousers. If you’re in the market for a few new iterations that are both stylish and practical, here’s some good news: There are plenty of options out there that’ll make any outfit you throw on look so chic (spoiler: many of them look luxe, but are actually affordable).
If your primary goal for a belt is to hold up your trousers, then a simple black or brown leather iteration will suffice. But, for those eager to snag a style that will add a unique touch to their ensembles, a studded or bright belt are both excellent options.
