The Wider The Belt Is, The Skinnier The Waist Looks -- Trust Us

The size of the belt is decidedly on opposite ends of the scale each season. One year it’s skinny, the next, wide. And for fall, the latter reigns supreme, as designers supersized the waist-bound accessory to cinch in everything from this coming winter’s oversized coats to dresses and two-piece outfits (preferably a top and skirt). But there’s more interesting details than just playing with size. Acne accented their fall/winter looks with large belts in a bright orange, adding a pop of color to a monochromatic outfit. Altuzarra and Fendi preferred basic black for belt hues, and chose classic and vintage-style metal hardware for fasteners and buckles. But the winner of fashion-forward thinking goes to Haider Ackermann, whose structured leather belts, in matte mauve tones or textured leather, are literally cinched in at the waist, which adds a major special effect, almost futuristic, to females’ curves.
