Obi belts are so much popular this season and I am so much drooling over them too. For sure they are going to be my next purchase. These belts caught everybody's attention when they were seen on the models showcasing the Fall 2016 collection for the international designer Alexander Vauthier. These broad waist belts with bows knotted on them definitely looked too cool on the models who wore them with short dresses, jumpsuits, thigh slit gowns etc. Later the famous international model and Hollywood actress Cara Delevingne was also seen in New York sporting this trend wearing an olive green satin obi belt over a black Alexander Vauthier outfit.
