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.

    I love the belt look but I’m a bit pudgy in my middle.  You think this can still work for me?  Where do you wear wide belts, hips or natural waist?

    wide belts are fabulous! they make your waist look small and they are a great accessory with almost anything! I wear them with tanks, tshirts and blouses. They scream “style” if you know how to wear them!
