Better start doing those sit-ups and crunches. The belt is one of the key accessories of the spring season, and that means all eyes are on your middle! There are belts to highlight your waist, belts to blouse a skirt, dress or jeans ... in short, there's a belt for every style and trend. We've rounded up the best and we show you how to wear them right here in the latest edition of The Trend Report.


Your father, your husband or your boyfriend may have a slightly worn-in, tailored trouser belt that is slightly oversized on you ... just the look you want this season. Borrow it!


If you want to go ultra trendy, opt for a metallic gold trouser belt with your preppy attire ... ooh la la!

This is a wonderfully forgiving look that melts off the pounds — especially if your waistline is not ready for primetime viewing.

This is one trend that will be gone by Labor Day, so work it now — and don't spend mucho bucks!

If you love the look of the hand-tooled belt or the beautifully carved metal buckle, you can safely splurge here. These belts are classics that you will treasure forever.
