Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

PASS THE BUCKLE

If you buy one accessory this season, make it an eye-catching belt. It’s the easiest way to refresh your look

The spring catwalks saw the humble belt elevated to new style heights, from wide waist belts cinching in flowing dresses to skinnier styles knotted over masculine blazers. Thanks to the current Eighties revival, the statement belt is back – and it’s not going anywhere. Personally, I think they are a brilliant (and cost-effective) way to update everyday outfits for the season ahead. Tried-and-tested jeans and polo-neck tops look fresh when you add a pop of colour with a bright-red mock-croc belt. Afraid of the animal-print trend? You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to wear when you switch your go-to black belt for a punchy cow-print style. Verdict: it’s this month’s sartorial pick-me-up.
