When in doubt, belt it out.

Just a quick PSA: Your belt should be doing *so* much more than just holding your pants up. Like a great tote bag or splurge-worthy pair of boots, a belt should be as stylish as it is practical, because why not give your waist a chance to shine?? Sure, there are plenty of belts out there that simply get the job done, but there are also a ton of options that will upgrade your 'fit to a whole new level—from trendy chain belts to wrap-tie belts to classic leather belts.

Whether you're looking to add some support to your favorite pair of jeans or wanna accentuate the waist of a dress, we rounded up all the best women's belts to help ya do so, ranging from wide corset belts to thin waist-cinching belts to delicate lil chain belts and everything in between.
