Martha Hunt’s Belted Blazer Offers An Easy Way To Refresh Your Favorite Piece
Building the perfect capsule collection of timeless pieces you can wear season after season (read: flowy trousers, sophisticated blazers, and versatile LBDs) is one of the best ways to edit your wardrobe. That said, it's easy to fall into a styling rut when it comes to re-wearing your favorite pieces on the daily. If you're in search of an easy way to breath life into one of your go-to outfits, prepare to look towards Martha Hunt's belted blazer for some major inspiration. The model just found an effortless styling trick — and it's so easy to copy.
On Dec. 17, the Victoria's Secret model made the streets of New York City her own personal runway. She was spotted out and about in Tribeca looking as elegant as ever, donning an ensemble that was the epitome of business chic. Her refined yet edgy outfit appears rather simple at first — and to be frank, it is. It consists of just three pieces you likely already have hanging in your closet, which means you can easily emulate her look this very minute.
Hunt wore black Paige skinny jeans, a sleek, high-neck shirt, and an oversized black blazer. But rather than wearing the jacket open and loose, she decided to cinch a black, Gucci leather belt at the waist. The accessory made the classic black wardrobe staple feel instantly elevated and new with very minimal effort — wouldn't you agree?
The 29-year-old topped of her all-black, cold-weather getup with a pair of slouchy, black Saint Laurent wedge boots. She wore her signature blonde tresses straight and opted for a no-makeup makeup look for an ensemble that seamlessly transitions from work to play.
The main takeaway from Hunt's outfit? All it takes to breathe new life into your trusty blazer is a belt, whether it's one with a statement buckle or a sleek, black pick. The next time you feel like your blazer is missing something, remember the model's no-fuss styling trick and cinch a belt at the waist.
