The street style outside the Spring 2019 shows was full of little sartorial nuggets: statement earrings are huge, hoodies are staples during layering season and patterned pants will set you apart even on below-zero days. But there was a microtrend that might have gone undetected.
Many street style folks opted to wrap up their coats with statement belts. And we’re not talking about the belts that already come with the coats. Whether it’s a big white belt holding together a brown jacket or a perforated belt knotted to keep a fluffy coat closed, the trick is a great way to make an old coat feel like new again. And a way to wear something designer without busting your budget. (The belts currently on offer are ah-mazing.)
