You can elevate your favorite looks with a belt. This useful accessory is often forgotten about during quarantine. Yes, we see you tiny shearling bag.

Belts are becoming more mainstream this season. You can thank Bottega Veneta, Loewe and mass retailers Zara and Mango for making the accessory a fashion staple.

Belts are a fashion statement among A-listers and influencers. They make even the most basic outfits look trendy. The mini logo belt looks great with either straight-leg jeans or a long winter dress. An oversized jacket or voluminous coat will look better with a thicker silhouette. This allows you to get more wear out of your winter and fall essentials.

Belts come in a variety of styles, from thin leather to colorful woven designs. They are trendy and versatile. We have compiled seven easy-to-follow outfit ideas to help you style the best belts for fall.

Leather Belt and Straight-Leg Jeans

Let’s start on a familiar note by talking about belts and jeans. This is an easy way to elevate one of your most important pieces of clothing. To keep things visually exciting, choose a semithick belt made of leather with hardware. The western trend is not dead, ICYMI. There’s also practicality: A belt can be worn in place of a loose vintage dress without the need to go to the tailor.

Maxi dress + statement belt

If you wear a dress, especially one that is colorful or printed, on a regular basis, it can lose its charm. A belt can change the look of your outfit. We love a metallic or rope version, paired with a long-sleeve knit dress for cooler autumn temperatures. If you are petite, it can be used to transform a maxi dress into a mini.

For date night, dress up a simple outfit such as a white button-down with cropped kick-flare pants. You can also use the look to make a matching set, if you have already worn it.
