The Most Flattering Wide Belts for Women, and other Fashion Belts this Season

Updated on September 20, 2011

Belts are a great accessory! They can instantly transform the appearance of an outfit, flatter our figures and make us look very fashionable at the same time.

This season, wide belts for women are back again and now there is more choice than ever. What else is hot in belt accessories this year? High waisted belts, western rhinestone belts and sequin belts are the leading trends.

Finding the right belt to flatter your figure can sometimes be a challenge. When shopping for the perfect wide belt, western rhinestone belt, sequin belt or high waisted belt, it's important to understand your body shape and to know what styles would be flattering for you.

So, let's check out some belts and have some fun! The great news is that there are many choices for beautiful and highly fashionable belts that suit every type of figure and instantly upgrade any outfit.


Wide Belts for Women

Wide belts for women just never go out of style! The best way to wear a wide belt is at the natural waistline, where it flatters most shapes and figures. The wide belt works wonders to naturally reduce the appearance of your waistline and instantly make you look slimmer. Not only will a wide belt elegantly define your figure, it also helps to define your overall line, which could mean making your legs appear longer.

For a corset-style belt look, wear a wide belt beneath the bust if you want to draw the attention above your belt, but be sure to keep to simple colors and patterns. For the more petite lady, match the color of your wide belt with the color of the top you’re wearing to keep the look flowing. If you want comfort as well as fashion, then opt for wide belts that are made of stretchy fabric; they look great and you can enjoy a big meal without worrying about your belt being too tight! Finally, if you want to draw attention to your hips, then wearing a wide belt loosely around the hips gives a fashionable look with sexy curves.

High Waisted Belts

High waisted belts turn everyday ordinary outfits into high fashion! It's no wonder why everyone is going crazy for high waisted belts this season. This elegant fashion accessory can be worn with skirts, pants or dresses. They hug your waistline to create a beautiful and elegant hourglass figure.

High waisted belts generally flatter taller women with long torsos; curvier women can also look superb in a high waisted belt although they may feel more comfortable wearing a tailored shirt underneath. It doesn't matter whether you are heading to the coffee shop to catch up with friends or going out on the town, a high waisted belt will very fashionably accessorize most outfits.

Shop for Sequin Belts

Sequin Belts

Add a touch of glitz and glamour to any outfit with one of these stunning sequin belts. Paired together with a light fabric black or grey top, black skirt and some subtle jewelry, sequin belts are simply gorgeous, and are the perfect accessory for creating a romantic look on an evening date.

During the day, a long jacket can easily cover up a sequin belt until you're ready to hit the town, remove your jacket, and let your sparkles show off your outfit. Dazzle up any outfit of plain simple colors with a pretty twinkling sequin belt, a little delicate fashion jewelry, and you will create a superb look that makes you feel great.

Western Belts

Yee Haw! Cowboy belts and western fashion belts come in many different unique styles, but probably most style right now are the rhinestone womens western belts.

Elaborately decorated with dazzling rhinestones, these western belts look oh so casually classy with a pair of jeans and a long sleeved western shirt.

      Hi Hyph,

      Laughing too much! I was maybe a straight "B" student with a couple of "A"s thrown in for good luck. You know me too well.


      PS You're welcome for sharing your Mama hub - it was so awesome.

      Cloverleaf, I am sincere when I say that you have great Hubs. Your topics are interesting and you research so you know what you are talking about. This is another great one that inspires me to try belts again. Clinton and Stacey on What Not To Wear would be pleased. They tell women to draw clothing into the body. You probably were a straight A student in school weren't you?

      PS-Thanks for sharing my Mama Hub the other day.
