At first glance, cage belts look quite intimidating like they someone just went back in time to Medieval times and stole the queen’s belt. But designers have transformed this harsh style in to something classic and elegant. I would never have thought I could successfully style a cage belt without looking like a cartoon character.
A cage belt that is classic in design with a minimalist style or even some pastel colors can look really cute paired with a loose dress or a maxi skirt. The belt give the dress some edge while also giving you a great figure! Win-win situation!
When looking at cage belts, I usually opt for one that has three or less belt buckles because I find that the more belt buckles the belt has, the bulkier it looks. I want the belt to cinch me in, not add more bulk. For color, I usually look for belts that have two tones because the belt looks less edgy and harsh with multiple colors or textures.
I love this belt I got from Ann Taylor, a few summers ago. It’s the perfect caged belt because the bright pop of pink really creates a fun vibe that is not often found on caged belts. Plus, the woven texture on the belt creates a cute boho vibe that is perfect for the summer!
I styled my belt with this loose white dress from Dresslink. This outfit is 100% festival ready! For a more fall appropriate outfit, you can style a cage belt with a loose dress with long sleeves. It’ll give you a great boho vibe. Just finish your outfit off with the perfect fringe bag and you will look like you just walked off the cover of a magazine!
