You know that feeling you get when you finally find the perfect handbag or pair of shoes to go with that outfit you’ve been saving? The right belt can make just as much of an impact. Often this functional accessory is overlooked, but a well-thought-out belt can do wonders for even the simplest of outfits.
Wrapping a Gucci belt through the belt loops of your favorite pair of jeans, for instance, is an instant game-changer. But it doesn’t have be a flashy designer brand: A leather belt with a simple gold buckle can also do wonders, adding a polished touch. Or you could follow Iskra Lawrence’s lead with a bright, wide waist-belt — perfect for jazzing up a dress.
Below, our favorite plus-size belts that are sure to bring any outfit to life.
