A great belt is a fashion staple that will serve you well, whether it's to define your waist in a baggy dress or shirt or dress up an otherwise plain jeans and t-shirt combination. These are tough times, ladies, but I have found lots of cute, colorful belts to dress up your wardrobe, all for under $50! This gorgeous bouquet sash belt from J. Crew is just $35 and will spice up any outfit with floral flair! This Belgo Lux open weave belt strikes just the right notes of preppy and bohemian. Or for a hot pop of color, there's the Another Line covered snake textured belt from Nordstrom. Check out my slideshow for other belts that cinch the waist and not the wallet!
