Let’s Get Waisted. It was inevitable: After seasons filled with oversize silhouettes, baggy, wide-leg pants and even baggier sleeves, defined waists are making a comeback. Yes belts are a big must for Fall 2017. 

 

Everyone from the royal crowd to top models embraced the classic accessory this season with new twists, and if you haven't invested in a handful of different styles, you probably should.

 

Fashion has had a long enduring love-hate relationship with the humble belt. The accessory has come and gone with each season and the styles have varied: from the studded, low-slung boho belt, to the slim Western-buckle styles of last year. But what is the belt du jour for 2017? Well, think super long…

 

The super long belt is coming in strong for fashion's favourite accessory of the year. The belt style - mainly worn tied around a coat or jacket to cinch in the waist - comes with an exaggerated length. 

 

Long, long, so long that it can reach down to your knees or your ankles in some cases, or so long that it might even touch the ground. That is what belts will look like this year: like you didn’t even bother to check your size, let alone tie it as you should. 

 

We saw models wear belts like these on catwalks, and more importantly, we also spotted them on street style gurus and fashionistas like Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner, as well as on influencers and editors getting snapped on the street during fashion weeks. Extra long belts are definitely a detail that will revolutionize your outfit, making it super cool.
