Belt Trends FW 05-06

My cousin bought this really cool buckled belt in Barneys LA, and after borrowing it on various occasions-did I mention that this was a male cousin?- I have a sudden infatuation with belts and am determined to find the perfect belt this season. After much research on the runway, here is what I've concluded:

As far as style goes, I can tell you that these multiple buckle belts seen on the Marc by Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren runway are all the rage. But personally, the perfect belt I had in mind is not quite as exciting, since I just found out that decent belts were actually quite costly (esp those beeeeeautiful ones from Barneys).
Hence I've decided to opt for a more classical and boring style, like these two from Anthropologie. Ok, maybe not exactly lime green, but I do so love the style of it. But you know what type I'm looking for now right?


To give perfectly boring belts a fashionable twist, take a page from the Marc by Marc jacob and Miu Miu runway. LOL, this time when I say twist, I literally mean a "twist".

Apart from the twist and style, this season it is all about the position of the belts. In celebration of the feminine curves, it is high up and cinched at the waist. As you can see perfectly boring dark buckle belts are used to achieve this effect on the YSL, Prada, Vuitton and Marc Jacobs' runway.

Anyway, I'm off! Probably to Zara. I think I spotted cute belts there last time I stopped by.

Those belts from anthrpologie are absolutely gorgeous! I think I hav to disagree. I don't find them boring in any shape or form. Those seem perfect! The buckles are big and beautiful but not over the top.

I've seen this trend lately and loved it on a few of the people I've seen it on, though I'm still left wondering if I could pull it off. Would love to see a pic of your find!

I have not found any belts this season that realy stand out to me; however, I have seen a lot of belts that certainly do stand out and say quite a bit about the poor young ladies that will be wearing them.

Needless to say I have not seen any belts worth wearing this season. I find belts particularly cumbersome after the first ten minutes, but go ahead buy something that looks like it should be strapped to your luggage instead what do I care.

Yeah, belts are in, for the moment. I want to say, cinched high at the waist - not so good. I think they're sexier when they sag. A nice thick belt - totally impractical, all about the visual.

Okay I have a dumb question. I love the look of the belts over coats. Here's the dilemma -- once you get inside and the coat has to go, what happens to the belt? Am I missing some obvious solution besides sticking it in my purse or something?

hi, sorry that this is a little irrelevant, but. . .
I'm a fashion journalism student in london. i was wondering if anyone knows how i can get hold of catalogs from places like barneys, urban outfitters, abercrombie, etc etc. i'd like to have the usa and uk catalogs, i've looked on loads of websites but no luck!
if anyone could give me some tips i'd be really grateful!

honeybunny: LOL thats a very good question. I haven't tried the style out yet, but I'm guessing that we stuff it into our coat pockets like what we'd do if we had those tie at the waist coats.

the_next_ms_wintour: I'm not sure Barney sends to the US. But for Urbanoutfitters and Abercrombie, you can go online to their sites and sign up for their online catalogs. Hope this helps!
