Belts are one of the most underutilized resources in my fashion wardrobe. That’s not to say I don’t have any; I do! Many (IE, most) just never see the light of day. I rarely wear belts with my dresses, as I find tight ones a bit uncomfortable, and I rarely wear them on jeans because I specifically search for jeans that don’t gape at the waist (and when I find those miracle pairs, you better believe I snatch them up!) Every once and a while, though, it is fun to experiment with old pieces. This little belt cost $3.50 at Forever 21, and even though it is ancient and too big for my waist, it works well over my much-loved cape and a few cozy under layers.
