The skinny belt is one of the easiest ways to highlight your waist and add color to your outfit… it really does have the power to shape an outfit (literally and figuratively). When looking to add the finishing touch to an outfit, sometimes a skinny belt is all it takes.
Skinny belts these days come in a wild range of colors and have details galore. Skinny belts are also great because they work with so many different pieces – from pencil skirts (so Michelle Obama) and dresses to slacks and leggings – and they work in so many different seasons.
The skinny belt is on our list of working wardrobe staples because of its power to transform a basic dress into a complete outfit by acting as a true finishing piece: slap on a skinny belt and you automatically look more put together. Below, we’ve compiled a few outfits that incorporate skinny belts to give you ideas of how you can wear this trend and illustrate just how versatile skinny belts can be.
