While we're well aware belts never actually went anywhere, a recent surge in popularity makes it seem like they've made quite the comeback. Got a trusty pair of boyfriend jeans? They'll suddenly look more stylish with the addition of a big buckle. That flowy dress that never quite looks right? A skinny belt will be the boost it needs to make it figure flattering and one of your favorites.

Everyone from the royal crowd to top models embraced the classic accessory this year with new twists, and if you haven't invested in a handful of different styles, you probably should. Belts are going nowhere — in fact, according to Rodarte, they're doubling! — so see how they're currently amping up outfits, then take a peek at next year's trends and snag one for yourself.
