If there is one thing that every person needs in their wardrobe as an “accessory” it would be a good ol statement belt. The thing with big belts are that most people don’t own one because they think it can only be worn with a jean or pants but if you find the right one you could easily slip it over a dress to cinch in your waist or even over a coat (winter style) to show off some shape. Another great way to wear this belt is with an over-sized shirt-dress or even a really long jersey, add some funky sneakers or heels and you’re good to go.
When looking for a statement belt you could do a plain one or a more dramatic style, it is up to the individual and their taste of course. The one Im wearing here is from ILoveTheLot and this is the larger one, there is a thinner one that you might opt for with this exact pattern and buckle. I have seen similar belts like this one at River Island so whichever one fits your pocket. 😉
Naturally I paired it with a jean because that’s my most comfortable style and a cute tee from TheFix. Amazingly I found thee perfect little bag to go with it, with the same buckle pattern. So yes I had to have it! It fits together so well which is crazy seeing that it comes from two different stores.
Big Patterned Buckles are definitely in this season. I also paired it with a dress that I’ve had for awhile now but putting the belt on gives the garment a whole new life. You could revive a dress you’ve had in your wardrobe as well by just pairing it with a statement belt of your liking.
