Belts are one of those accessories that ebb and flow in terms of popularity. Right now, we're in a serious flow phase, if you will, as evidenced by the street style scene at New York Fashion Week. From wide waist-cinchers to thin and skinny styles, belts are popping up on showgoers from fashion editors to stylists and influencers, including myself. The last time I was this fixated on belts was in college when my assortment was vast and few outfits were sans the accessory. This time around, I'm here for a range of styles from Bottega Veneta's buzzy and sculptural shapes to vintage versions in a variety of textures and widths. While I've got a few ways I love to wear my belts, I'm always seeking out new styling inspiration be it over a coat, atop a blazer, wrapped around a dress at my waist, or slung lower on my hips.

If, like me, you're finding yourself really into belts right now, keep reading to see some of my favorite street style outfits from New York Fashion Week. Not only will you pick up a few helpful styling tips but I've shopped out similar and exact styles, so you can have a solid assortment at the ready this season and beyond.
