Accessories are the easiest way to update your wardrobe. As long you have your essentials, basics and classics behind you, you only have to use some key accessories to showcase the latest trends or looks. Belts are a great way of cinching in your waist and drawing attention to one or create one, so here are three to do just that!

The Hettie belt from LK Bennett is a classic belt with a geometric look to it. Black and gold is a classic colour combo and will work in any outfit, adding a touch of elegance. Hettie would be a great option for work or formal functions. Buy from LK Bennett for £95.

£95 may seem rather steep to some for a belt, but there are many cheaper options. This belt from Dorothy Perkins is also black and gold, which I think in most cases, makes just about anything look that bit more expensive! At £8, this is truly bargainous but at that price rest assured that it doesn’t skimp on the chicness! No, in fact this little number is definitely channelling Chanel albeit at a much more affordable price point. This is a statement belt without being too flashy – it’s skinny so whilst there are studs it is not too busy. The tassle makes the belt have a hint of 80s to it, and I think this would be great with a sold-colour jersey maxi dress for summer.

If you were impressed with a belt for £8, we’ve saved the best for last! This lilac belt is from ASOS and a mere snip at…. £6! Lilac is set to be a huge hit for summer along with other sorbet and pastel shades and a £6 belt is an easy way to work this trend into your wardrobe. The gold coloured metal against the pretty lilac makes it all feel very luxurious and would look fantastic against a nude blazer for this season.
