Fashionable Belts

17T BeltsThese belts are designed for informal occasions.

Waist Chain

This is a metal chain unisex belt. Youngsters can team it with cowboy style or with a pair of jeans and tees. Ladies can also wear this with a single piece black party wear.

Fancy Belt

This multicoloured feminine beaded belt goes well with casuals like dress or tee & jeans.

Style Tips:

  • Belts define waistline. So, belts are good for persons with narrow waists.
  • Thin, cord type belts are good on persons with short waists and petite figures.
  • Wide belts are the best for tall persons who are with long waists.
  • Contrasting -plain or large printed – dress emphasizes the belt. Hence this defines waistline better.
  • Belt worn over kurtas/kurtis will enhance the beauty of Indian ladies.
  • Emphasising buckled belts over dark outfits suit persons with wide waists.
