  • Obi/ribbon belts

These wraparound belts are inspired by Japanese kimono ensemble. These go back and front unlike tie belts which are tied in just one loop. Wear it with full-length jumpsuits, long skirts, gowns. Choose an exciting color to add a little drama to the dresses.

  • Hip belts

The typical hip belts are in a V-shape below the belly button, though now hip belts are any normal low waist belts. Hip jewelry is our traditional kamarbandh. Hip belts can be worn over slim fit trousers and shirt. Match it with a hat or a beanie for a cool hipster look!

  • Metallic, neon, textured belts

These are a must have. They are the perfect accessories to jazz up your outfit! Summer is the ideal season to wear a cool top, shorts, and a great neon colored belt! Neon colors are funky and flashy, but excess usage will become gaudy

  • Tooled belts

I say girls can pull this off better than the traditional cowboys! They are leather belts with heavy buckle and bold designs. Wear cargo pants or khaki colored pants to get a cowboy er…cowgirl look. Not meant for cute simple dresses but rough and tough wear.

  • Chain belts

These have links instead of holes and links instead of leash. You can wear them once a while for a change. These look cute with tunics and short dresses. Almost like the kamarbandh only it doesn’t have to be mandatory low waist. Delicate single chain ones will look good with crop tops .

  • Elasticized belts

This gives a figure flattering silhouette. Make sure the one you wear is not too tight. No matter how fashionable it may look, comfort should always come with it! Not advised for heavy bellied bodies. It enhances your curves.

  • D-ring belts

The only difference between this and a normal belt is that this has a D-ring instead of a buckle. Trousers, shorts, skirts anything can be paired up.
