Style On The Street: A Belt That’s Not Holding Up Pants

J.Crew is always styling their catalog models in skirts with tank tops, cardigans, and a belt on the outside. This girl must have seen one of their catalogs and thought, "that belt thing is something, but I only wear neutral colors -- no plaid or poppy red for me." [Trender Bender]…
