Up a notch: Belted looks to elevate your street style
Belt it out
A penchant for oversized fashion does not necessarily have to mean complete concealment of one's figure. Take a dip into the trend du jour of wearing belts over baggy ensembles and have the best of both worlds: wonderful volume erupting over a cinched-in waist. Below, we've compiled a gallery showcasing the best of street style over the past few fashion weeks where the style set creatively demonstrate how to work a belted look.
Embrace the rah-rah by rocking a bejewelled buckle on top of a printed frock with ruffled sleeve caps and metallic lilac boots in Look 1 or keep it clean like the next picture and double belt an all-black shawl collared suit. Belts can range from Look 5's simplistic cord tied in a casual bow to one decked out with ornate triple medallions as seen in Look 12. And whether you err on the side of minimalistic utilitarianism (See Look 19 feat. plastic buckle and massive keychain cluster) or you prefer function in ample forms like the roomy Marni waist packs in Look 22, give the ol' cummerbund a go for a real defining fashion moment (Looking good, Nicole Warne!).
