Belts can do wonders for you, from enhancing your figure, to instantly adding style to your outfit, but picking the right one isn't always easy. Several body types can't do with certain styles of belts, which can sometimes be difficult to accessorize with. So Stylelist has come up with some guidelines to help you:

1. Invest in a high quality belt that can be paired with multiple outfits.You don't have to spend a fortune, just make sure it's of good quality that will last and age well.

2. Your first belt should be basic. Black or brown are the safest bets, depending on the overall hue of your closet. You can then slowly move on to experimenting with bright colours or different buckles.

3. Finding versatile belts is also difficult, as it's not always possible to find one which can fit both your hips and your waist without looking awkward. So either get one or both. This season, the "in" one is the waist belt, which looks pretty flattering when paired with dresses and pants.
