There's no time more opportune to show off your stomach than summer, so if you're into baring your belly, you'll likely want to find some gorgeous accessories that flaunt your tummy. With the increased focus on self-love across all size spectrums these past few years, it makes sense that more and more folks are celebrating their bellies, no matter their weight or shape. Seeing ladies showing off their visible belly outlines and wearing whatever they damn well please is nothing short of wonderful.
In the early '00s, Shakira released "Whenever, Wherever" and shimmied, wiggled, and belly-danced her way into many a heart. Although the musician has always been a straight size gal, I thought it was great to see someone totally owning their bare stomach and confidently pulling moves, especially considering I was a little uncomfortable in my own skin. Over the years, Shakira's worn many a tummy-flaunting accessory — from belly chains, to body chains, tassels, and more.
Of course, it's not only folks with Shakira-esque bods who can rock accessories that show off their stomachs — far from it, in fact. Everyone should be proud of their bellies and enjoy feeling divinely irresistible in a piece of tummy jewelry. That in mind, here are a bunch of beautiful accessories that belong in your summer wardrobe, so you can start showing off your tum in all its glory ASAP.
