Cara Delevingne may have swapped the catwalks for Hollywood, but it is clear that the stylish star has still been swatting up on her trends, as she rocked a super chic obi belt yesterday, confirming that the accessory is one of the hottest buys for your wardrobe right now.
As seen on a whole host of catwalks including Marni and Gucci for SS15, the obi belt is a retro classic that’s in the midst of a very stylish comeback, and Cara has just added to our increasing obsession with this waist-cincher.
The Brit girl has been rocking some flawless looks while promoting Paper Towns, and this latest look is taken straight from Alexandre Vauthier’s AW15 Couture catwalk, proving that the obi is still big news for next season.
The best news? These belts are incredibly versatile, and can instantly transform even the most basic of outfits. For work, wear one over a plain shift dress and team with classic courts for added smarts, and try with a floaty frock and flatforms for off-duty cool.
To amp up your after-dark outfits, choose a coloured belt and add to your trusty LBD, or pair with high-waisted palazzo pants and a crisp white shirt for a chic alternative.
Either way, obis are not only an off-the-catwalk trend, they’re also incredibly flattering whatever your shape or size. What’s not to love?
From Mango to Asos to Dorothy Perkins, the high street is coming up trumps with its selection of obi belts, with prices starting at just £18, too. She might have replaced fashion with Hollywood, but we knew Cara would continue to inspire our wardrobes.
