If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I’ve been using this belt rather frequently this winter (or is it spring? It’s hard to tell). I have been doing this for a very simple reason: winter clothes tend to be heavy, bulky, and tend to involve many layers that in my opinion, without a waistline can often look quite sloppy. Step forward this savior, the obi belt. This wonderful and incredibly simple accessory fits to any size and can hold down as many layers needed to fight the winter cold, while creating some form of a waistline and saving an outfit like this from being messy, bulky, boxy, or too masculine.
