All clothing can benefit from accessories to complete the look. But since fashion accessories tend to be more of an afterthought than your clothes, you’ll want to have them ready in your closet, so you can add them right before you run out the door in the morning. Use these tips to build your accessories wardrobe and you’ll always have those last-minute touches when you need them. And for today, we focus on belt.

A wardrobe of belts

Whether you’re using them to hold up your pants or to cinch in your waist and create curves, women’s belts are one of the most important women’s accessories. Here’s what you need in your belt wardrobe:

  • Black belt: A black belt with a subtle buckle will be perfect with the black and gray trousers you wear to the office. Black leather belts make an excellent professional looking choice.
  • Brown belt: You need a brown belt to wear with khaki trousers, and a brown belt also works well with navy pants and jeans.
  • Wide belt: A wide belt can be worn over dresses and tunics when you want to accentuate or create a waistline. Choose a wide belt in a neutral color or your favorite accent color, like vibrant red or metallic silver.
  • Fashion belts: When you want to dress up a little bit more, you can let fashion belts be a fun accent. A rhinestone belt or a bold belt buckle would dress up your waist for an evening out.

Most women’s belts are available in sizes small, medium and large. These sizes correspond to the women’s clothing sizes. Refer to sizing guide to see how the measurements work
