The "Skinny" on Belts

Every time I walk into a J Crew I instantly start needing to collect more variations on skinny belts.  They put them together so perfectly on the dress forms in store with such fun color and pattern contrasts.  They are an easy and inexpensive way to add a little extra to a basic outfit.  Below are a few of my favorites - paired with a great wool pencil skirt from J Crew (amazing peacock blue color that's new for this season) and then tucked in a fun pattern blouse... One you may recognize from the Missoni for Target Collection.
Can't go wrong adding in a touch of the ever so popular animal print.  This one is from Forever 21 (shocker!) and is in stores now for less than $5.
I splurged on this ribbon tied belt a couple seasons ago from J Crew.  This could easily be a DIY project substituting the chiffon fabric flower for a white rose from a craft store like Michaels for a bit of a softer, romantic look.
I can never resist a little bit of sparkle - even for daytime I love the simple shimmer this adds.
Texture! Love the contrast of the gold studs with the Missoni for Target blouse.
