There's been a lot of volume in dresses and blouses in the last few years, and if you sometimes feel like you're wearing a tent, you're not alone. While voluminous dressing can be fun and comfortable, sometimes you want a waist - and that's where the key investment of a good belt comes in.
Western motifs are almost always in style, and that's because they are classic and distinctive, and usually fairly low-key. This concho belt from the 1970s is perfectly worn-in. Via My Wandering Eye on Etsy.
Something simple with a spot of flair means it will work with multiple styles of dress. This '40s belt with a simple star buckle fits the bill. Via All the Vintage on Etsy.
A thick white belt makes quite a style statement, and this one from the '80s perfectly matches the '80s-inpired trends happing now. Via Simple Matilda on Etsy.
I fervently hope that fanny packs never come back in style. This, however, meets the hands-free joy of the fanny pack without the embarassing bulge. And it's a sweet belt, too. Via Shopthrifted on Esty.
This sweet belt is ideal for dressing up an outfit for the evening. Add this vintage gold belt from the '20s to a Little Black Dress and you are ready to go out. Or pair with black pants and a white tank top (or an all-white ensemble in the summer) and it works beautifully, too. And it comes with a matching purse! Via Michelle Renee Art on Etsy.
