Both myself and CF advising editor Lydia were coming of age where belted everything was a trend–cardigans, blazers, and skirts with a belt were a wardrobe staple for us for years. Lydia observed that we are “so there” for belts, trend-wise. We’re happy to see this trend come full circle, and evidently designers are too since this was one of the most popular looks we saw this season.

The Olsen twins have a serious problem with diversity–their lookbook above is no exception. They very rarely feature models of colour. At least they’re offering fetching obi-inspired belts.

The simplicity of a minimal black belt as seen above and below lends a surprising amount of definition and edge to an otherwise sweet dress.

Love the juxtaposition of the prim belt above with the undeniably glam lurex dress at Vanessa Seward above.
