We’ve all seen the headlines: 80s Are Back, 90s Are Back, Hippie is Back, Grunge is Back. Needless to say, anything that is old is new again. This season, it’s time to get waisted — on belts that is.
Adding a wide belt to the little in the middle is the strongest way to emphasize that baby’s got back. A Kim Kardashian backside is as desirable as Pamela Anderson’s boobs in the 90s. Both women deserve their own zipcode for their respective endogenous zone. Oh yeah, it can help hold up your pants too.
The wide and oversized belt makes reference to Christian Dior’s iconic New Look which debuted in 1947. For Fall 2015 designers like Rochas, Guy Laroche, House of Holland, Balmain, Balenciaga and Marni all focused on cinching the middle.
The best part of the belt trend is that belts are relatively an inexpensive accessory– next to bags and shoes. We are sure that won’t stay that way for long. Browse through all of our favorites of the season below.
