With the past few seasons focusing on loungewear and waist-up dressing, belts were one of the most neglected accessories in our wardrobe. But this season, belts are making a comeback to take up their rightful place as the sartorial supplement. From reversible designs to functional waist belts (with pockets!) and suspender-inspired body belts, belts have certainly amped up their sass factor and are much more versatile than ever. And well, there’s no denying the power they have to pull together just about any outfit – be it a t-shirt and jeans, a long dress, or a voluminous winter coat. To welcome this Great Belt Renaissance, we have AND ALSO’s Divisha Khaitan share how to spruce up your looks with our favourite belt designs from the brand below with a side serve of no-fuss outfit pairings.
(L-R) AND ALSO Two’s A Party Double Waist Belt Rs.6800, AND ALSO Wrapped Around Me Reversible Wrap Belt Rs.6500
Presenting a classy, sassy, and little badass attitude, AND ALSO’s belt collection features effortless yet experimental designs. And to start off our favourites list, we have our fashion radar focused on reversible wrap belt and double waist belt. Well, these two will definitely make a solid statement when paired with a panelled dress or a jumpsuit. And as Divisha Khaitan (Founder – AND ALSO) adds, “The beautifully hand-enamelled and gold-plated buckles (with a citrine/garnet centre stone) on the wrap and double waist belts will keep things visually interesting – while adding an extra pop of colour.” Courtesy their enviable sartorial quotient, we haven’t stopped thinking about peplum belt and detachable pocket belt. They may seem challenging to style, but they are actually pretty versatile. To warm up to these belt designs, use them to break up your monochromatic ensembles or dress up a simple combination of puff-sleeved blouse and flared trousers. Oh! And detachable pocket belt is a perfectly chic solution to all our no-pocket woes. Then, we have AND ALSO’s bestsellers – suspender body belt and waist-cinching corset as our must-have pieces. According to Divisha, these two are the perfect accessory for all occasions – from brunches to cocktails and wedding festivities – where and when you want the spotlight on just you. And yes, we totally agree with her! While our preferred pairing for these gorgeous body belts would be a knit dress or a saree, what would be your preferred style pair?
(L-R) AND ALSO Hug Me Tight Waist-Cinching Corset Rs.9500, AND ALSO In My Pockets Detachable Pocket Belt Rs.7800, AND ALSO Pep It Up Reversible Peplum Belt Rs.12,900
We believe belts are the most subtle outfit-maker in our wardrobe, after all, a belt is a great way to create shape, highlight the curves, and elevate your look. So, what are you waiting for? Welcome the belts back in your style game with a little help from our selection of AND ALSO’s belt collection. Well, let’s get waist-ed!
