Forget about the perfect bag as your top accessory for summer and grab a great belt from Artesia! Belts are the top accessory for the season and for a good reason; they make any outfit look polished and on trend. Artesia offers a great selection of belts in a variety of options: stretch, woven, wrap, tie and more! Starting at only $12.
INDsider Tip: Your body type is your first hint at choosing the right belt according to Artesia owner Gina Babineaux. "Fuller figures should choose a wider belt to minimize hips and slim the waist. If you want to create curves, look for a thinner style. Location matters also, placing the belt higher on the waist or even high up under the chest will flatter a fuller figure."
