Leather belts often dominate fall and winter fashion, but they can be just as stylish and functional during the summers.
Whether you have a closet full of summer dresses or are planning fun summer looks with crop tops and shorts, you can incorporate all sorts of leather belts into your look.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind, though, when styling your belts.
Tip No. 1: Wear Belts That Compliment Your Body Shape
Believe it or not, there is a perfect belt for each body type—you just need to find what suits you best. Moreover, certain belts are your go-to accessory whether you want to accentuate your curves or hide them.
For example, if you have a low waist and shorter legs, wide belts would suit you best. You should also try choosing belts that are the same colour as your pants to make your legs looks longer.
On the other hand, if you have long legs and a high waist, you should try wearing a belt the same colour as your top to give the illusion of a longer torso. Or try wearing a short summer dress with a narrow belt in the same colour.
Tip No. 2: Use the Belt for A Pop of Colour
In summers, you can put away your typical leather colours like black, browns and tans, and choose something a bit more colourful.
In fact, if you’re fond of floral dresses or summer dresses in beautiful, colourful patterns, you can use coloured leather belts to highlight a specific shade of the dress to tie the whole look together. You can also pair it up with matching shoes or a matching sling bag, or a clutch!
Tip No. 3: Let Your Statement Belt Shine
Statement belts are all the rage these days, but not everyone is styling them right. When you wear a statement belt, you need to ensure that it remains the central feature of your entire look.
So firstly, make sure to pair the statement belt with a somewhat neutral outfit like a plain jumpsuit or a solid-coloured summer dress—avoid very busy prints and patterns. And make sure to keep other accessories subtle.
Besides these simple tips, it’s also important to update your belt collection every summer. Outdated belts can be harder to style, especially for summer looks.
