No long talk. You already know the drill. We bring you nothing but what is trending to keep you in the know. This summer is all about making statements the best way you can. Be it with hair, sunglasses and whatever is trending.

The statement belt is also in vogue this summer.

Belts are usually worn for a closer grip on clothes or frame the contours of women in loose clothing. Statement belts are simply belts worn over or in clothing that stand out from the whole look. They are usually bold and bulky with intricate and elaborate designs.

With the current craze around corsets and waist trainers, the 17th century AND Elizabethan era is seeing a comeback into the scene with statement belts designed like corsets and Africans are embracing the trend.

The amazing thing about statement accessories is, no matter how simply you are dressed, you always stand out.
