Confession: we've developed a big time relationship with belts this season. But can you blame us? With all of the countless voluminous styles to choose from—from dresses and sweaters, to sweatshirts and tees—cinching the waist has never been more chic. Plus: we're sharing a tried and true stylist trick. As a way to get more wear out of closet staples such as a classic white button down or black t shirt, we've taken to injecting our core basics with on-trend style by wrapping a beIt around them (also great for achieving a figure-flattering fit when the moment calls for such). From nautical-inspired rope belts to brightly colored striped iterations, we've rounded up the best outfit-boosting styles for under $100.
