My Belt is Longer than Your Belt !
Have you seen them yet, those extra long belts that just hang to your knees? This trend was first introduced for Spring 2017 and will continue on for Fall 2017 and Resort 2018. See on runways as varied as Off-White, Tibi, Monse, Alexander McQueen and Proenza Schouler this trend is a strong one. A number of them took it a step further by suspending belts from around the neck and even the bust-line. The resurfacing of the feminine silhouette for Fall means that waists will need to be cinched, so yes belts are playing a big part this winter.
The long belt trend has been seen on Rihanna, Gigi and Bella Hadid, in addition to Kylie Jenner. Other than the fact that it must flap annoyingly as they walk, as seen in photos the upside is that it is slimming to the waist and lengthening to the legs.The vertical line down the leg also draws attention away from your hips and keeps the eye firmly on the flapping belt…Not a bad thing !
