Buckle up ladies…because things are about to take off! We’re coming at you with a complete belt guide to help you incorporate this essential accessory into your fall wardrobe. It’s crucial that your closet is stocked with a few of these must-have accessories that grant you the power to (literally) pull an outfit together in a snap. If you’re ever stuck thinking, “Hmmm… something’s missing” when looking in the mirror, nine times out of ten, a belt is that missing piece of the puzzle.
Whether you’re belting at the hips with a snazzy pair of jeans or at the waist over a cardi or dress to add definition, that final accessory is what takes your look from good to great. Since there are so many diverse styles to choose from (thick or thin, metal or leather, glitzy or understated), we decided to put together a belt guide to make things a bit easier for you and give you inspiration on which styles are hottest this season. After reading about some of our favorites below, don’t blame us if you find yourself wanting one of each style! Keep scrolling to discover which ones are calling your name.
Wide belts are all the rage this season. They are a great way to cinch you in and hug you tight, adding dimension and definition to your outfit. Maybe you’ll go for a toggle clasp or a double buckle. We love these thicker belts at the waist over a longer-length blouse or dress.
Any outfit will benefit from an extra dash of bling, and adding a metallic belt is the perfect way to do just that. This style belt goes great with jeans, helping to dress up or add edge to an otherwise casual style. Whether you’re going for a studded leather belt or a chain belt, be sure to match your jewelry and you’re golden.

Zebras and leopards and snakes…oh my! What’s fall without skin prints? A great way to throw some animal print into your outfit is with a belt! Reach for snakeskins, leopard prints, and zebra stripes this fall, and use them for print mixing (we’re looking at you, florals) or for adding a pop of print to a sleek, all-black look.
