Accessories: Brown Leather Belts
At New York Fashion Week, the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection was full of sophistication. (In fact, that has nothing to do with this post)
Something made dominant was the leather belt which was worn knotted. It seems this is a new trend we'll all be getting to grips with soon.
I love the brown belt worn with high-waisted skirts, but I also love it worn with feminine dresses as in Karen Walker in her Spring/Summer collection. I think the use of the looped brown belts here are perfect, especially with the floral dress.
However, this way of wearing belts is not completely new. It is very popular with the stylish Swedish girls, particularly Emma Nyren
. I think her outfit choices are amazing.
