How to Tie the Obi Belt

Posted by Lucy Mellon on

Sometimes an outfit is just missing something. Whether it's a dress or a button down, a classic belt with a twist can help spice up any outfit. That's why out Obi Belt is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. The belt is a lot simpler than it looks, and it only takes a minute to learn how to tie it. Follow this step-by-step guide and you'll be reaching for it over and over again. 

Step 1: Wrap the belt around the back of your natural waist, holding the ends by your sides. 

Step 2: Find the notch (or hole) in the strap on your left side, and thread the right side through it. 

Step 3: Once you've done that, wrap the two straps around your waist as many times as you'd like. 

Step 4: Once you're sufficiently wrapped, tie the belt in the front for whatever look you're going for, whether it's in a bow or just a simple knot. 

Step 5: Adjust the positioning of the belt to suit your outfit best. 

The belt is reversible, so you can wear it on the satin side, making it formal and sleek, or on the matte side for a more casual look. For an event, the belt can be paired with our Katy or Newland Dress and a pair of killer heels. If you're looking to wear it to work, throw it on with our Beaufort Pants and the Elbe Shirt in white with a cool pair of loafers for a simple, professional look. It cinches you in at the waist to give you a flattering silhouette, kicking any outfit up a notch. With this accessory in your closet, you'll be ready for any occasion.
