I bought this belt (online) with the Evaline Dress. Hated the dress but this belt is a keeper. It's my new favorite accessory. I immediately tried it on with a couple skirt / top combos that were kind of blah and BAM! Perfectly pulled them together. I will get a TON of use out of this belt (that's how I'm justifying the price - OMG $70 for a BELT?!).
I'm 5'11" and a size 8 or 10 depending. I got this belt in the M/L though the S/M would have worked. I'm happy I got the M/L because the manufacturers tag has tons of pictures on how to tie the belt and it seems longer is better.
Love, love, love this belt! Oh, and I ordered online and my belt looks exactly as it does in the picture here. No scuffs.

I tried this belt on in the store and thought the quality was great! It is well made! I also liked the color of the leather. It will go with a lot of outfits and make a great addition to a dress! I am not good with the wrap part and probably just need a lesson - so I did not buy this. However, for those that like wrapping, this is a great belt.

I really love this belt! I typically wear a 10 and ordered the M/L size and it wraps nicely with good length for the strap ends to hang. You can also look up on the ADA website for tutorials on different ways to tie the belt! I think the basket weave middle of the belt is a fun unique detail. The one other reviewer who didn't like the belt obviously didn't take a good look at the photos, which clearly show this belt has a more distressed look to it. And the color is SPOT ON to the photos!
I love this belt! Wider stretch belts are ok, but corset type doesn't work well on my body type and tends to shorten my waist. This belt is perfect to accent dresses. It runs a little large, I'm normally a l/xl and I got a medium in this on other reviewers recommendations. Want more colors!

best stretchy belt yet
I prefer stretchy belts over rigid because of digestion issues and comfort issues from sitting down at desk all day.
These skinny tabby belts are the best!. I prefer skinny over their thicker sister's version because I have a thick waist which is just made that much noticeable with a thicker belt.
thin belt for the win!

I got the belt in rose which is a muted gold color. I like that it can be worn with the buckle in front or back giving two different looks. really comfortable and flattering
I love the design and the quality of this belt! It can be worn with tunics and dresses. I think it gives a bit of "flair" to an outfit. Also it is very classic and timeless---I will be able to use this belt in 10 years!! It is worth the money!!!

I love this belt, I bought it immediately because I have a harder time finding black belts, it seems like there are a million brown but fewer in black. It's perfect. I am typically a small, but this I bought in a medium to wear as a waist belt, or hip belt (today I'm wearing it as a hip belt).
Don't be misled by the fact that there's no clasp, or solid closure. This little lady stays in place all day!
Overall, this is a great belt. The leather is very supple and easily pliable, so you can fold and tie the ends in many different ways. I am typically a size 4 and the S/M fits great, leaving ample room for fastening variations. My only "gripe" is the leather is not double-sided, so, depending on how you tie the belt, you may see the unfinished underside of it. Other than that, it really is a great staple piece. It looks especially nice over chunky cardigans to create a slimming silhouette/waistline.
Be prepared to answer questions every time you wear this belt, it adds that wow factor. The quality is great and the colors are vibrant. I've worn this belt twice and have gotten many compliments both times. Get it ladies, you won't be disappointed.
I'm so excited about this belt! It has a lot of "chic-ness" and "cool-ness" because of it's leather nature, but then the bronzed shine just gives it that extra "umph" without being too in your face or little girl playing with glitter. I've looked up a variety of ways to tie the ends and overall really like how it lays.
Whether you think you do or do not have a waist, belts are a wardrobe must. From changing the proportions of an outfit to adding an extra dose of ruggedness or shine, belts have a way of completing your look, without appearing overly fussy. When wearing a belt, think outside the loop; meaning, don't limited yourself to trousers and jeans. Some of our tried-and-true styling tricks include cinching a belt over a blazer or atop skirt, just beneath its waistband. And remember: while men often wear them daily, women's belts are anything but masculine.
