Sure, the dresses and suits were stunning at the 2021 Emmy Awards, but one fashion detail we couldn't stop talking about as stars made their way down the red carpet? Belts. Waist-cinching, color-coordinated belts — a trend we saw on a variety of actresses throughout the night.

While some of them were used to accessorize long, glamorous gowns, Kathryn Hahn pulled an early aughts trick and wore an extra-large version with a strapless top. Amy Poehler also showed up in a sleek, belted blazer, letting a metallic sequined skirt peek out from underneath.

We've definitely seen this accessory rise in popularity over the past year (remember Michelle Obama at the inauguration?). The good news is, you likely already have this staple sitting in your closet, so you can steal this look, ASAP.

Ahead, take a look at the best belts of the night.
