NY fashion week: trend watch/belts

if anything's already clear from the spring '09 shows, it's that one key accessory that's not going anywhere is the belt. we've seen all sorts - from skinny, to studded, to earthy browns. at the marc jacobs show, we saw the obi-style belt:

this isn't the first time we've seen this belt. in fact, it had mass appeal a few seasons ago and came in a wide range of colors. however, this is the first time we've seen them so metallic and updated with diaper-style (that's what they remind us of, lol) pins.

the tibi show had a similar take on kimono-style belting:

while the marc by marc jacobs show had layered belts:

which we immediately thought of when we saw tory burch's version:

the belt is definitely taking on a life of its own next season. will the statement belt be next season's statement necklace or will they both take the center stage? hmmm. stay tuned :)

Great eye! I love the Marc Jacobs and Isaac Mizarhi collection. Belts are always a great way to flaunt the waist.
