It’s official – the waist is back for AW20…

A slimmed-down version of the noughties favourite waist belt ruled many a runway this season, with everyone from Prada to Paco Rabanne and Carolina Herrera  showcasing the cinching accessory over blazers, trench coats, evening dresses and everything in between. And what’s not to love? This versatile wardrobe addition has the ability to add instant polish to any outfit. Err on the side of casual and match your belt with relaxed separates as seen at Prada, or if you’re feeling the chill, both Ralph & Russo and Etro channelled the trend to add definition to bulky winter coats. Not just a daytime accessory, if you’re heading out after hours then take inspiration from Paco Rabanne and Miu Miu, who styled thin waist belts worn loud and proud over statement embellished eveningwear. The options are endless and effortless.
