The belt, an often overlooked accessory, was perhaps one of the strongest trends seen on the spring runways. Abandoning function for a more stylish approach, designers embraced it in all forms, from the kimono-inspired obi sash to a '70s spirited lariat. Now it's your turn to try these three unexpected styling tricks that are sure to be—well, a cinch.

Obi Belt + Tunic

Tunics naturally have a billowy silhouette. Accentuate your shape by tying a solid-colored obi belt around your waist. Let the ends fall freely to give your look movement, as seen at the Edun show.

Waist Belt + Trench

Replace the belt to your favorite trench with a color-blocked waist belt, as seen on the Tome runway. This trick adds an interesting flare to your basic trench without losing that perfect hourglass shape.
