Tied-Up Sash Belts Are The Coolest New Runway Accessory


While heavy leather belts may be a staple accessory for the colder months of the year, the boho chic sash belt is set to make a splash this season. As fashionistas prepare for summer, loose silhouettes and waist-cinching ties are officially en vogue. Whether you plan to lounge by the pool or hit the party circuit, take our sartorial tips into mind and follow the runways to embrace the season’s hottest accessory trend now.

Casual Chic

For a Saturday outfit which will leave you feeling like a bohemian goddess, look no further than the shining example from the Jonathan Saunders catwalk. Step out in a printed kimono inspired frock with a V-neckline and short sleeves. The look of contrasting pastel-hued abstract prints completes the style, while a sunny yellow sash belt can accentuate your waist. Slip into a pair of strappy sandals, and prepare to soak up the sun like a model off duty.

Work Wear

Meanwhile, sashes receive a business-ready upgrade on the David Koma runway, in the form of a sleek black ribbon belt. Try stepping out in a blush pink and black coatdress, with a V-neckline and ladylike long sleeves. Meanwhile, a pleated black hemline and black ankle strap sandals help to inject girlish glamour into your career gal wardrobe.


For the after hours, flowing and free-spirited is certainly the style du jour, and hastily tied belts help to emphasize the season’s carefree silhouettes. Take your cues from the Salvatore Ferragamo catwalk, and slip into a strappy black mid-length pleated number with a ruffled bodice. The look of contrasting hues of deep tropical violets, greens and orange, along with a curve-enhancing black sash, just may transform you into an island beauty. For an accessorizing finish, turn up the nighttime elegance with gladiator sandals and bold statement jewellery.
