Though it may be a basic, there’s more to the humble belt than mere practicality. With trousers tailored to fit our shape without needing to be cinched these days, we’re using the belt to inspire a little creativity in our outfits instead. To celebrate the arrival of the Mulberry Braided Belt in three colours in store now at Robinsons, we’re sharing three new ways to wear them for an instant new season style update that won’t break the bank. Belts were seen on the streets and runways of every SS18 Fashion Week; here’s all the inspiration you need to add them to your accessories arsenal.
LOW AND LOOSE
Blame the boho revival because belts worn low and loose are back. The casual leather braid of the Mulberry style is ideal for belting floaty summer tunics and shirt dresses at the hips, so take it down a notch or three from the waist and go a little lower for some Seventies chic.
We’re all about pieces that make this awkward transitional dressing phase a little more effortless and belts are capable of taking the modest knitted cardigan from frumpy to fashionable. Belt your cardigan open an inch or two to reveal the layers beneath and create a flattering panel that will draw the eye down and make you look long and lean.
ALL TIED UP
There’s something about a knotted leather belt that looks incredibly nonchalant in a way you’d think only the cool girls could carry off. It’s actually one of the easiest looks to carry off and whether looped through white jeans with a grey jumper slung on top for weekends or belted over Laura Orchant’s painterly silk scarves, a tied tan belt will quite literally put a new twist on the way your wear other pieces in your wardrobe.
