There is an accessory missing from my closet that I REALLY want right now...A gold belt. However, my waist is just a tad larger than normal being 7 months pregnant and all. haha. So, that shopping trip will have to wait a couple months longer, but that doesn't mean you can't go snag one. Belts have been a popular accessory for a long time now. Granted, the width of belts has dramatically changed from thick to thin, but they remain a fashion accessory must have nonetheless. Braided belts were extremely popular this past spring and summer, but as the fall approaches and people start thinking about the holidays, gold belts will take over.
Gold is THE metallic of choice in fashion. Even in interior design gold has made strides toward center stage. So, my recommendation is to invest in a gold belt. It can be skinny or go up to 1.5 inches, but I probably wouldn't go any wider.
Not sure if this trend goes with you fashion aesthetic? Here are several examples ranging from professional to bohemian to inspire you.
