Belts not only offer an easy way to update a wardrobe, they also cinch and pinch in all the right places, helping to create an ultrafeminine silhouette. This season, there seems to be more variety than ever: wide and skinny, jeweled and classic, leather and fabric. For the belt beginner, it's hard to go wrong with Barneys' thick, basic leather belt in black or brown, which sits on the waist ($200; barneys.com). Following the trend of bright colors and statement pieces, Versace's red, skinny patent-leather runway belt boasts a silver metal buckle ($605; eluxury.com). Miu Miu makes a shiny patent-leather variety in hot pink ($195; net-a-porter.com). Roberto Cavalli's stunning butterfly belt is made of tan leather and features a hammered gold-tone butterfly buckle ($665; net-a-porter.com). And for the fashion-forward, nothing beats Missoni's amazing brown leather lattice belt with brass studs ($1,486; net-a-porter.com). It renders all other accessories unnecessary.
