She wore her brown What A Girl Wants thick belt with a brown What A Girl Wants straw hat, beige What A Girl Wants with paisley design top, and green thrifted fatigue, high waisted shorts. Since then, Thick belts have grown in popularity as bloggers from Fresno, Wherever You Are, and Manila/Cebu have discovered them. Thick belts are generally seen in casual, bohemian, and trendy style. Popular brands of Thick belts are thrifted vintage, Girbaud, H&M, Target, and Yoshi! NOW.
