Wild About Wide Belts

April 23, 2012 at 12:45 am Leave a comment

Wide belts, or cummerbund belts, as they are sometimes called, graced the Spring 2012 runways of designers Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg and more, and it’s no surprise you can find them just about everywhere—the waist-cinching accessory is universally flattering. In and around Newport, you’ll find a diverse selection at all different price points. J. McLaughlin has leather belts with brass detailing, anchor, bamboo and u-hook closures, equestrian inspired styles, and natural elements including linen and hemp fabrics ($65-$95). There’s a variety at Francesca’s Collections at Long Wharf Mall at wallet-friendly, affordable prices (around $18). A few storefronts down, you’ll find more at J. Crew on the Harbor (avg. $55) and at Brick Market Place, Brooks Brothers has a beautiful two-tone style perfect for summer ($68).
