When it comes to accessories, the belt is the most underestimated one. Not only does it hold your loose pants up, it can also be the pop of colour or print that your outfit needs. Or something that fixes the silhouette of your look and enhance your curves. You might not know that but the ladies of Bollywood sure know how to wear their belts.
The evolution of a belt has resulted in a dozen different makes and styles, materials and buckle styles. The ultra slim belt that was en vogue till about 3 years back is on its way out. Now, the regular width and the chunky belts are becoming increasingly popular once again and the proof is in the pudding… I mean, the pictures. The proof is in the pictures of these 8 Bollywood stars’ belt choices. Here goes:
Shilpa Shetty knows how to turn the heat up in this orange co-ord outfit. Adding the zing it needs is a leopard print belt buckled around the waist. For us, the belt made the outfit more stylish, what ‘bout you?
