Wide belts that tightly hug the midriff are all you need to flaunt your figure this season – so drop those skinny belts, forget slouchy looks, and get on board with this super flattering look. As far as the size of this accessory is concerned, think: the wider, the better. With the simple fastening of a buckle, this belt will give you the hourglass shape that women have been seeking for centuries. You know the effortless sex appeal exuded by the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor that we still reminisce about today? It all starts with that highly covetable silhouette.
This alluring trend was spotted widely at Fashion Week, from New York to Paris and more. Now, in the middle of Fall/Winter 2016, it’s more than timely to start sporting this accessory. Wide belts will go with just about anything, be it an oversized winter coat or figure-hugging dress. Savoir Flair loves the opulence of those by Maison Margiela as well as Saint Laurent’s unapologetically 80s-esque designs – but there are plenty of understated versions out there, subtle enough to cinch an outfit for work or play. Browse through the gallery below to see the most interesting Fall/Winter 2016 runway moments of wide belts, then shop the look for yourself.
