Wide Belts Go Minimalist

Posted by Alexandra | Thursday March 31, 20113 comments

If you don't like splurging on accessories, a flat neutral belt is the perfect one-time buy that, if you invest in quality, will last you for years. A classic shape and style, this belt was designed to be pulled through belt loops of any slack or jean. We loved the styling of a menswear inspired classic leather belt with a summer dress as seen at Isabel Marant, and paired with trousers and a bell-sleeved blouse at Paul & Joe. A matte belt in the same shade as a head to toe monochromatic look, like the all black at Yves Saint Laurent, creates one long and lean line, while still defining the waist. For these belts, a very small amount of detail in the hardwear goes a long way.

I really like wearing one of these chucky belts with jeans, heels and a white blouse - I love the classic looks!

I bought a basic brown belt around 5 years ago and I still wear it all the time. It's definitely not going out of style anytime soon.

I like how Isabel Marant has paired it was such a feminine dress, it's a nice contrast.
