Fashion News|September 23, 2015

Take a deep breath… Firmly cinched, the hourglass figure reclaims the limelight this season, as designers propose the waist as a stylish and sensual marker of femininity. One silhouette, three ways to do it – decide which way suits you best.

Bands

Belts

Offering a swift and easy route into autumn/winter 2015, the tightly drawn belt signals new-season nous, while the dramatic gilt buckle is a strong contender for autumn’s standout accessory.
