It is the year of the belt! Belts are celebrated everywhere from loopholes to cinching waists. They have certainly made their way to become the current staple of American accessories. If you are not a fan of the traditional purpose of a belt to hold up your pants, there are many fun ways to wear one. If you've got a billowy tee or a trendy and loose baby doll, you can belt it with a wide belt creating the illusion of a very tiny waist. Some belts come embellished with rhinestones or studs and you can rock the rocker look or cowgirl queen with what ensemble you choose to pair it with.

Wrap that dress in the best womens belts. We suggest studded belts, leather belts and other designer belts for womens accessories that are always the best quality at the best price.

The Best You Can Get

  • Swarovski Darling Black Belt

    Jess says: Much like its name, this belt is darling. You can wear it in so many fun ways but the best part about it is that it will really make an outfit. Wrap it at the waist of a pencil skirt and fitted back button down for a chic look or go for the glamour with it landing at the hips on denim with a white tank and black heels.

  • Patricia Field Roger Belt

    Jess says: Ever since seeing this studded belt worn by Carrie in Sex in the City: The Movie, I have been obsessed with wanting it. Costume designer, Patricia Field put this belt with almost all outfits that the character wore throughout the movie. She then did one better, recreating the piece for sale in her New York City shop. Curiously named The Roger Belt, is for sale online for your pleasure.

    • THE belt of the year
    • Belt is 2” tall and buckle is 2.5” high

    Jess says: I love the mix of luxury with rockstar edge and this Linea Pelle belt does it best. I could see this over a tight black mini with the upcoming season’s thigh high boots. Very chic. I could also see if over jeans with a tight tee for the more low-maintenance rocker in you.

  • Nocona Rhinestone Studded Suede Leather Belt from Shepler's

    Jess says: I know that this piece is a bit pricey for the Best Value list but a Shepler item is a must-have for every woman. Western wear and Sheplers has been synonymous for over 100 years. Began in a modest storefront in Wichita, Kansas, Sheplers has become the world's leading provider of apparel and accessories for the country/western lifestyle including traditional cowboy wear, fashionable western wear, country-inspired casual wear and authentic work gear. This belt is a perfect addition for the fashion forward cosmo cowgirl.

    • Midnight Black Suede leather with velvety look and feel
    • Buckle, keeper and tip with rhinestone floral and black enamel detail
  • Banana Republic Skinny Belt

    Jess says: Belts are great with bells and whistle but nothing says chic like a great skinny belt. This piece from Banana Republic is right on trend with its patent leather material and 1/2" sizing. Available in sizes XXS - L, it’s a simple but essential addition to any wardrobe closet.

    • 100% Patent Leather
    • Brass Hardware
    • ½” wide
  • Urban Outfitters Double Buckle Waist Belt

    Jess says: Not for the traditionalists, this wide belt is made to be worn at the waist. With a preppy Navy/Baby Blue color motif and brown leather double buckle, this piece is paired best over a loose dress.

    • Wide waist belt
    • Navy/Baby Blue color
    • Leather-style trim at the double buckle closure
  • J. Crew Straw-flower Tie Belt

    • Tie closure with poly ribbons at ends of ropes

  • Pyramid Cool Punk Leather Belt

    Jess says: I am a sucker for this belt. As a former resident of New York's Lower East Side, I love the look of this studded belt. It's got the maturity of a chic piece in the leather but is made for the "cool" kids with its signature punk studs. I even love the rebellion of the silver and gold mixed and matched. Never mind the bollocks, this is a great studded belt for everyone to own.

    • Silver Antique Nickel and Gold Pyramid studs
    • Available up to 36”
