This Spring/Summer 2010 season, loose-fitting garments are completely on-trend. From tunics and tanks to shells and shirt-dresses, relaxed and easy are your key style words.
That’s one reason I’m loving Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaïa’s intricately-designed leather belts. His waist-wrapping leather belts feature details like punch-through leather, zippers, and – in this case – studs.
At first glance, this glamourous belt looks completely metallic. Those gunmetal pyramid studs cover triple strands of suede, which cross-over in the center. This belt makes a sophisticated statement without losing any edge – picture it juxtaposed over a feminine silk tunic, or loose-fitting frilly dress. It’s a chic way to cinch your waist and show off your shape.
