Skinny belts are in for the Spring 2014 season. More than functional accessories, skinny belts are oftentimes purely decorative. Women with long torsos should wear skinny belts just below the navel in a contrasting color. A woman with a short torso, however, will want to rock this look with a belt that’s the same color as her clothing so the vertical line isn’t interrupted.
If you’d like to add a skinny belt to your wardrobe, check out these beauties at less than $20 a pop.
