Just in time for spring and summer travel, the belt bag is back. This is not like the frumpy fanny packs we remember from the 80’s, but rather a stylish interpretation of the belted wallet, in a wide variety of shades. It’s even appearing in metallics and darker colors for evening wear.

Wide belts

The wide belt is back. It’s paired with flowy, long dresses and with more structured blouses, straight skirts, and trousers. Belts range from soft fabric ties in velvet or suede and leather, or embellished with studs, beads, and laces to add an edge to softer, more romantic looks. (Great news for those who are of the hourglass body type to show off your waistline.)

Here are our some of our picks for spring 2017 accessories to add to your own wardrobe.
