You said:  Yes to the Boyfriend Belt, with a 84-16 split in votes.

Style tip? Boyfriend Belts, so named for their uber-long length (that would presumably fit your boyfriend’s waistline) that allows them to be folded over just so, are the key belt silhouette this fall.  We’ve worn them this summer as a fantastic finish for oversized shorts and boyfriend jeans - and even the occasional dress whose volume requires a bit of reigning in.  This fall, we’ll be pairing the boyfriend belt with slim skirts and drapey trouser pants.  We’re liking thinner versions of the belt to pair with pencil skirts and delicate cardigans - and chunkier, thicker versions of the belt to pair with heavier fabrics and silhouettes.

Next question: We’re starting to gear up for Fall Fashion, and chunky, textured knits are high on our radar. But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear chunky knits?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Hmm… it would depend on the style of the sweater. The cardigan you linked to would be really flattering with something streamlined peeking out from underneath, but if I wore a chunky knit boat or v-neck sweater, I’d look well… chunky.
