This year the belt has made a major comeback! I remember wearing belts back in middle school and loving the statement it would make with my outfits. For some reason flashing a belt with my looks made me feel all grown up! Now, years later (ahem…) belts are back and making a satisfying rerun. This is probably a current style trend your outfit is missing!

Originally, when I ordered this tribal print jacket I had the intention of wearing it with jeans. However, when I put it on it engulfed my body and it was not a flattering look I was going for. So, I made my way into my tightly packed closet in search to find my special woven basket filled with belts of all kinds and found this vintage red belt of mine!

Cinching this belt around my over-sized jacket instantly amped up my outfit! My over-sized jacket became a chic dress and I instantly feel in love with my new look! So, whether it’s boyfriend jeans, a flowy maxi dress, classic blazer, go-to coat, or in my case — an over-sized jacket, put a belt on it, ladies!

To belt or not to belt, that is the question. I would love to hear what you think!

    I love that this trend is back! I have a small waist so I tend to stick to skinny belts, but this is so cute on you! xo, Brittany | http://www.theblistblog.com

    I am not a huge belt person because I have a tummy but with that said, I think now there are ways around the issue. Thank you so much for the ideas!

    I love those types of belts and I’ve worn it with a cardigan to spice it up! You look stunning and love the colours of your belt along with your bag❤️

    What I like about those wide belts is that because i am a bit plus-sized in the middle, the belt makes me look a little thinner 🙂

    What a cute outfit! I love the look, but never really go anywhere to wear something like this.

    It’s funny that I was just talking to my partner last night about how I have zero belts! This is such a cute outfit – I think I need to go belt shopping

    I love these colors girl! So perfect for Fall, and such a pretty print!

    I love this dress on you! Stunning! The belt is the perfect way to bring the waist in but not distract from the pretty dress. So glad belts are back.

    I love that wide belts are back! And that print is stunning on you.

    I absolutely adore how you styled this tribal print jacket by transitioning it into a dress and added the belt. You look so gorgeous in it.

    I have a big love for belts. So happy to see this trend again! Your pick is absolutely amazing!

  21. November 11, 2017 / 8:59 am

    Maybe I need to give the belt another try. I haven’t worn one in years since my waist isn’t all that different from my hips and bust. Worth a shot, right?

    For some reason I’m never thinking to belt a look but it really gives it such a totally different style. Your waist looks so tiny and it really hugs your curves in the perfect way!

    Yes! Loving the comeback of the statement belt. Love how you styled this look! This jacket is beautiful.

    Nothing like a good belt to really make a look pop. It’s especially good for those wishing to portray a hourglass figure as well.

  29. November 16, 2017 / 8:58 pm

    I used to wear belts like these ALL the time then I kinda just stopped for no rhyme or reason. Now I’m wanting to pull my favorites back out again!!
