I love a good belt and this underrated accessory can pull together a look like nothing else. Add a belt to high waisted trousers or to cinch a dress and you can instantly give yourself shape, elongate your legs and up-level your outfit. While I lean on my belt collection the most in the fall and winter months, I’ve been loving adding a statement-making belt to my summer dresses this year.
My favorite belts come from my good friend and luxury shoe designer Sarah Flint, and I actually had the opportunity to tour the factory where these beauties are handmade in Italy a few years ago when she was preparing to launch them as a new category. Because I’ve been wearing my Sarah Flint belts so often, Sarah generously gave me an exclusive discount code for her gorgeous belts to share with you!
My favorite from the collection is this leather scarf belt that allows you to weave your favorite silk scarf through the holes to create a chic belt. This style is infinitely versatile (they’re reversible so you can feature one of two colors!) and a great way to add interest to an outfit – plus it’s great for hiding a tummy after a big meal! I also can’t get enough of this thick waist belt with it’s beautiful buckle, which I love pairing with shoes in a similar tone. Lastly I just got this “Mirjana” belt which is just chic chic chic and makes even a simple shirtdress feel special. For fit, I’m normally a size 2/XS and wear a 75cm/size small in these belts though the scarf belt style is extra forgiving.
