Forget Your Basic Belt, Try This Instead

When it comes to the business of trends, there are truly so many to keep track of. There are the broader themes like athleisure and military, and then there are the more granular ones that focus on specific clothing items (e.g., voluminous sleeves)—or in today’s case—accessories. Our point? No matter what your style type, there is undoubtedly a trend for you, and we hope that our spotlight on the oversize belts might suit your fancy.

For the F/W 16 season, we saw a handful of noteworthy rectangular-shaped buckle belts trickle into collections we admire (more on that below). Plus, during the fashion month season, trendsetters were spotted in these pilgrim-esque waist cinchers. Though we can’t deny the necessity of a basic belt, why not jazz things up a bit with an alternative option?
