Big belts fashion had been one of the staples of 80s chic femme (hello, Clair Huxtable!). Decades later, the trend has resurfaced, this time tempered with quieter, more elegant minimalism, as seen in the sartorial choices of fashion royalties Duchess Catherine and our own Michelle Obama. The years do not diminish its usefulness, especially in concealing parts of our body which we’d rather keep in line.

When wearing big belts, remember that these are going to be your fashion focal point. Don’t go for a fashion overkill by having your frock compete for attention. Basic outfits with simple, clean lines will make for a better complement to these big baddies.
