Merry Christmas! I cannot believe we are closing in on the end of 2018. I don’t know about you, but I am ready to celebrate the arrival of a new year and a fresh start. So why not step into 2019 with a really fun fashion trend for 2019! Statement belts shined in 2018 and they will continue to live on in the new year. This one accessory alone has the power to transform a look to make it bolder and trendier. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to master four major belt trends so you can enter 2019 in style.

Waist Belt

One of my life mottos, “When in doubt, wear a maxi dress.” If you are still looking for the perfect NYE look, a long dress or skirt is an easy way to look glam and fashion-forward. Plus, you can take it up a notch by cinching the waist with a belt to pull the whole look together. A simple, classic leather belt always does the trick. You can keep it timeless by opting for a belt in brown or black, or get a bit more bold by opting for a colored belt. After all, NYE is the perfect time for getting creative and standing out with your outfit.

Vintage Chain Belt

Of course, the powerful combo that continues to reign in the fashion world is a statement belt paired with a blazer. This waist-accentuating, menswear inspired look commands attention and prowess, thus it needs a belt equally as commanding. This is where the chain belt comes into play. Like everything else in fashion, these are cyclical and were huge in the early 2000’s. However, chain belts are back in a much more modern way. I love the ones with  dangling medallions when paired with sweater or leather dresses!

Fanny Pack Belt

Another belt trend that continues to circulate is the fanny pack. It’s exactly what it sounds like – a hybrid of a classic belt and pouch. I am a big fan of the aesthetics it provides, as well as the practicality! Sometimes it can be a hassle to tote along a handbag, especially in crowded places such as a NYE party or busy bar.

The fanny pack belt is great for storing essentials, while also adding that street style flair to your look. Here I’ve shown three ways I’ve styled it the past. The first is with a dressy gown, then with a casual, everyday dress, and then for the office. There’s no excuse not to wear a belt bag!

Crystal Belt

Maybe the most fitting option for a NYE party is the metallic or crystal belt. This is any easy way to add that special sparkle to your evening outfit. With an accessory so loud, you can choose to wear it with solids so it creates a nice contrast. Or if you are like me and think more is better, pair your metallic belt with more metallic! Love how glam this Balmain dress looks with this statement belt. On another note, this B-Low the Belt one keeps getting sold out, but I finally caught it in stock at Free People so grab it while you can!
