Each season, there’s one item I think I have to own, the essential piece to update the clothes I already have that can be worn with all kinds of outfits.
This year, I’m searching for the perfect skinny belt, maybe something in a faux snakeskin or animal-print calf-hair. Maybe mix it up over a fitted jacket or with a long loose tee, a sweater or jeans. Some of my favorites are pictured above. From top to bottom: metallic Chloe belt with a shirt-waist dress ($77 at shopbop.com), navy faux croc from Lands’ End ($29.50, also available in gold and green as well as basic black) and a studded slim style from Anthropologie, $24.
Do you have ideas for a must-have piece? Share them with me in the comments section of the blog.
