An accessory that often goes unnoticed is the belt in a women’s closet. Instead of spending time stretched across your waist, they mostly spend time coiled up in some drawer. But the power of a belt is unmatched. It instantly adds texture to the everyday outfit and makes you look well-put together. So, where should you start when it comes to belt shopping? First step is to cover the basics. A sleek black or brown leather belt from Coach is a must in your closet. Other classics from designer labels like Valentino Garavani and Gucci are complete with logo’d buckles that add a luxurious finish. Other kind of belts to keep in your collection are the ones that focus more on design than practicality — gold chain belts from CZ by Kenneth Jay Lane and Saint Laurent. And, to put an especially eye-catching twist to your look, consider crystal-encrusted versions by Jimmy Choo or Benedetta Bruzziches.
