Get a taste of the Orient

One of the hottest summer trends this year is the oriental Obi Belt. Kim Kardashian tried to pull it off along with the popular colour blocking trend when she launched her perfume in London last month but the outfit really didn't do her beautiful curves any justice - as you can see below.

If worn right  it can really nip you in at the waist and help emphasize the smallest part of every woman's body, accentuating curves on hourglass figures and helping to create curves on more boyish figures. 
Vogue.Com has generated a selection of hot looks incorporating the obi belt seen on the catwalk this year to help you incorporate this eastern oriental trend to your summer wardrobe.
