Wide belts

Of course, belts are always on trend, but what tends to vary is the width of the belt and where you wear it.

For instance, in the 90s, belt trends were for a mid-width style worn fairly low on your hips. Now, for 2022, many designers chose to finish off their outfits with a wide belt to define the waist.

This style works well if you have an hourglass figure and want to show off your waist or if you are a rectangle shape and want to create the illusion of curves.

A wide belt can be good to change the look of the same outfit. You can belt over a dress or coat to get a different look.Also take a look at how to wear a belt – tips and tricks to get the most out of this accessory.
