Sometimes, it’s the finishing touches on outfits that take them from basic to standout. It’s all about the accessories, and belts can really make the outfit. Belts are no longer a necessity to hold your pants in place, they’re now the focal point of many outfits and they pair great with dresses and skirts. There’s one belt that stands above the rest and it’s our latest obsession, the western belt.

This trend has been popular for a while as it’s a throwback from previous decades. Back in 2015, Kendall Jenner was seen wearing it to Coachella and western belts have gained in popularity over the past year, making their way from the runway into everyday fashion.

Don’t know how to style the belt? Of course, the western belt looks great with western-inspired outfits like jeans and cowboy boots, but it also helps make a flowy-dress more figure-flattering, accentuating your waist. Oversized blazers, which is another huge trend this season, look even better when western belts are used to cinch in the jacket.
