Style #1

Elevate any look with this statement belt of large links and round pendants. Wrap around and leave the extra length hanging or loop it over for a cool effect.

Style #2

Stewart loves using chains from her handbags as belts, too. For this look, the fashion blogger used two minimalistic gold chains to add the perfect touch to a black floral slip dress.

StyleTip: Keep the chain style simple when pairing with bold prints and textures.

Style #3

This belt with large links is also very versatile. Wrap it around or let it hang, or create a big swoop around the front of a skirt for a bit of drama. Smaller loops wrapped in opposite directions are also a fun possibility.

Style #4

This option mimics the look of a traditional leather belt and is Stewart's favourite. She admits styling options are a bit limited with this one, but recommends it because it fits perfectly through most belt loops. Stewart rocks hers with jeans, trousers, oversized blazers, and waistcoats, to name a few.

Style #5

What's better than one chain belt? Two! If you really want to make a statement, especially with a more minimalistic outfit, double up on chains. Stewart pairs a mixed metal vintage piece with oversized links with a thinner silver chain for a little contrast.
