Belts are back, and they’re better than ever. Remember the early 2000s, when all things belts were in, from oversized waist belts and belts outside the loops to colorful pleather, studs to spare, and often unflattering designs? We sure do, but we survived and are ready for the belt comeback.

This time around, belts are a chic finishing touch to a look (rather than an unwanted bulky addition) and are accentuating all the right curves. From matching blazer and belt combos, bejeweled skinny belts and retro chain belts, you’re bound to find your new belt bestie this year.
