Splurge vs. Steal: Belt It, Cinch It

Add a little spice to your wardrobe with the bold colors of spring—it may be just the thing to pull you out of the winter doldrums.

No matter how much green is in your wallet, a funky belt, like these options, can update your look or simply rejuvenate a great pair of jeans.

Steal: Keep your pants up in style with this bright-yellow skinny belt (1¼ inches) from Urban Outfitters. Bold and attention-grabbing, it makes a statement without breaking the bank; $14 at Urban Outfitters (737 Seventh St., NW, 202- 737-0259;3111 M St., NW, 202-342-1012).

Splurge: Don’t mind paying extra for a little pizzazz? This chic purple belt by Original Fake is sure to fit the bill (or the slacks). Pick up the pop-art inspired accessory for $190 at Commonwealth (1781 Florida Ave., NW; 202-265-1830).
