Now that we’ve covered statement belts and skinny belts, let’s move on to obi belts! Giorgio Armani and Zac Posen sure have, with the stunning obis they sent down the runways this season. The unique shape makes them versatile and also very flattering. They do a nice job of cinching in the waist, while providing a wide enough band to slim rather than squeeze. Available as both a sash-style tie and a buckle front, obi belts will accentuate the waist over a dress or skirt, or worn over pants, similar to a cummerbund.
