August 13, 2015

Cinch it, loop it, slouch it, tie it, sash it… belts are BACK! There are so many ways to flaunt a belt, and with the fun new shapes and textures of this season’s styles, you’ll have more than a little fun getting creative with this accessory! Watch the video below and check out what our Design Team loves about belts this fall!

Want more ideas on how to style your belts this Fall? Read on and borrow some inspiration from our favorite ways to style our belts!

Whether on the runway or out on the town, this season belts are being worn high on the waist. It doesn’t seem to matter if they’re worn around a chunky jacket, with high-waisted jeans or shorts, cinched over vintage-inspired dresses and skirts, or even over jumpsuits! If you’ve ever considered bringing an hourglass-shaped ensemble back into the spotlight, belts are a surefire way to do it in style. Both wide and narrow belts work well for this trend, and we love seeing them in bright hues and mod patterns, especially if they have a creative buckle or unconventional tie.

Speaking of unconventional ties, when was the last time you considered the possibility of a sash-inspired belt? We’ve spotted fringe-edged belts, cloth-woven belts, bejeweled belts… all with extra length and of tie-able material, allowing you to get creative with not just where you cinch it, but how! Give your snazzy side a little free reign and be bold with your belts; this season, creativity is queen!

Something else we’re noticing this season is the relationship between belts and shoes. Don’t let past style advice to match the two get between you and your adventurous side! We’re spotting a more natural-toned chunky heel paired with brighter, bolder belts in a variety of textures and patterns. Now, belts are much more than support for your too-loose pair of jeans; they work to draw attention as a statement piece. Our leopard print Kipling Belt is the perfect example of how belts can be noted as stand-alone eye-catchers. Ironically, while leopard print in the wild makes excellent camouflage, it actually seems to draw the eye and pull colors together in the fashion world. While the Kipling Belt will automatically fulfill the bolder belt trend, its range of natural hues will act as the ultimate tie-together for any cabi outfit!

Finally, let’s talk jeans. As our Style Director mentioned, in the past it’s been a bit tricky to know when to wear a flashy belt with jeans or when to play it cool, but this season, there’s no question! Belt your denim with all the enthusiasm you can muster!

Whether it’s a bold buckle, a bright print, or a new way of looping a belt through and around your waist, be sure not to miss all the ways to show off your belts this season! Which of the style ideas above will you try this fall? Share your favorite looks on social media using #cabiclothing
