Belt it out
The belt, we all have them, but do we pay much attention to this staple accessory? If worn purposefully, a belt can be a focal point for an outfit. Elevating from basic to basically-high fashion.
Have we got you thinking it’s to time to invest in a new belt and or have you noticed gaps in your wardrobe? Choose from woven, leather, chain and more because with Portmans belts - accessorising’s a cinch.
At Portmans, we love a woven belt. Summer-friendly with carefree vibes, the natural textures work perfectly with neutral tones, soft fibres and linen. Another pro of owning a woven belt is the flexibility of how you can wear them. Pair with a tailored short or pant for a relaxed edge or fasten tight at the waist accentuating your shape, it’s up to you. Ideal for wearing over a floaty midi dress, we can picture you taking a woven belt with you on your next sunny vacation.
If an outfit is minimal and classic, the difference between boring and polished could simply be the addition of a belt. Tie in the belt buckle with your jewellery whether it's silver or rose gold and it will pull your whole look together. We’re thinking a beautiful printed blouse, sky-high heels and a jacket to finish it off. Take that outfit up a notch.
Not just for threading through the belt loops on your jeans, belts are fantastic for defining your shape around your waist. Ideal to be worn over a shirt dress when the weather allows for it, tie your belt in a knot for an interesting twist.
For an edgy update – try replacing a trench coat’s existing tie with a chunky belt. This fashion-forward tip is a sure-fire way to bring new life into your tired workwear too. Why not flash a bit of hero hardware? A trend we are seeing at the moment is polished metal and chains whether all the way around or just on the belt buckle.
Fact – you can never go wrong with a simple black belt. Bold yet basic, a black belt pulls an outfit together with ease. Whether it’s nipping in a blazer at the waist or worn over a cardi to add extra texture. If you tend to wear a lot of heavy prints, a black belt could be the defining accessory to break it up and balance it out.
