Skinny belts are back. Belts are always big and styles are constantly changing, but this year the slim style belt is the new must have item. These elegant designs have been a prominent feature on the catwalks, seen regularly in Spring/Summer 2011 collections. The pretty waist belts not only beautify the summer dress, but will also take you into the winter with the style set to be a key fashion item all year. In order to complement a variety of styles, go for a leather belt in dark colours like brown or black.

2011 is about to mix fabulous and frumpy with this years bag trend; the belt purse. Yes, as odd as it sounds, this fashion piece has turned a few elegant corners since the days of the “bum bag” and has ditched the neon colours in favour of strong leather styles. The belt purse is best worn just above the waist to prevent the accessory from looking too functional.
