Belt Out The Summer Hits!

By on May 29, 2015, in Soft Surroundings

Summer means warm colors, cool fabrics, carefree style — and accessories to match!

Going hand-in-hand with the season’s gypsy chic, haute-hippie, and statement jewelry looks are belts as statement pieces. Dazzling in details, vibrant in color, and striking in dimension, belts are big this season in more ways than one.

Easy to wear and easy to adjust to your style and figure, bigger belts are beautiful — and flattering! Be it low-slung or at the waist, larger belts shape and contour your silhouette, elongate the body, and balance your proportions.

As with all statement pieces, let your belt be the main attraction. Showcase it with flowing tunics, skirts, and dresses in solids and subtle, tonal prints.



Opulent and dazzling with tiny mirrors, zardozi embroidery, swingy pearls and paillettes, the Harem Belt is as alluring as its name. The Ibiza Belt is nothing less than a festival of color and movement with its tassels, beads, pom poms, and fringe. The flattering, figure-defining Seraphina Sash is a beautiful alternative to a belt with its swirling, Moroccan-inspired motif.

Exotic Elements


Lustrous shell nuggets are showcased on each scalloped medallion of the handcrafted Kailua Belt, giving any outfit an elegantly beachy look. Luminous lip shell and antique silver embellishments create the striking, wearable work of art that is the Buenos Aires Belt. Turquoise is the center of attention in the gorgeous silver concho buckle of the Teresa Belt. The tribally inspired Arden Belt is resplendent in antiqued bronze leather and hand-cut-and-hammered gold ornaments, making it a highly unique statement piece.
