Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Belts

Belts at VPL, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Proenza Schouler.

Style tip?  The beauty of belts are how they can help create a silhouette.  For those of you with defined waists, the belt can reinforce your hourglass silhouette.  And for those of you with a more boyish, up-and-down shape, the belt can create the illusion of a defined waist.  Wear your belt slung low, as at VPL, or up high (and even over your coat!) as at Marc by Marc Jacobs.  Or use a belt to create visual interest in an otherwise monochromatic outfit, as at Proenza Schouler.

What do you think?  How would you wear a belt?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I think it’s funny that this is considered a trend. I think belts are a classic accessory. I’m actually wearing a belt at my waist because I’m one of the unfortunately straight waisted ladies of the world.

    I am 49, tend toward a modernist, slightly punk but overall pretty conservative look so the belt right under the bust will never happen on me.

    I do wear them at the waist and sometimes over cardigans and light jackets. I don’t rock the at the hip thing any more because it remind me too much of the overdone boho/gypsy look.

    This year is all about skinny belts for this lady. That said I did see a few wider stretch belts I may have to snag to go with pencil skirts.
