Fall 2006 Fashion Preview: The Wide Belt

The wide belt is another accessory making a major comeback this fall. The belt, sometimes called an “Obi”, from the belt/binding used to hold a kimono in place, was poping up everywhere during NYC’s Fall fashion week—over sweaters, dresses and even winter coats.

How You’ll Wear it:

- Over a grandpa cardigan sweater

- Over a black fitted sweater and black pencil skirt

- As a belt for your basic winter dress coat

- To add a bit of color to a basic black sweater dress

Where to find it:

Urban Outfitters, Target, eBay (great collection), H&M, Forever21 or make your own by purchasing a strip of leather and a vintage (or vintage looking) belt buckle from your local fabric store.
