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
