7 Easy and Chic Outfit Upgrades Styling Belts



how to wear and style belts


Today’s post is all about how to style belts. Do you wear them? Belts have always been a go-to completer piece, but it also seems like they drop on and off the radar every few years. Thin belts were a thing in the ’80s, chain belts in the 90s, and oversized belts dominated the early 2000’s.


When I was younger, I rarely bought belts because they were expensive, and I didn’t think I’d get the cost per wear that I wanted out of them. And for years, I never wore belts. Until I realized that they’re not just for holding up your pants. Belts have the power to completely change up the look of your outfit.


Adding a belt will elevate your basics and add texture, polish, or even a pop of color to whatever you are wearing. They’re the timeless accessory that will always be around, but how we wear them will constantly evolve. Keep reading for seven easy outfit ideas to recreate styling belts.
