The Best Designer Belts That Will Complete Any Outfit
The Belts That Will Instantly Up Your Style Game
Belts exist squarely at the intersection of function and style. Sure, they can be used to hold your jeans up, but the right belt can instantly dial up your outfit and bring a dose of personality to simpler items. Call it the lazy fashion girl hack, but we’ve noticed that the simple addition of a designer belt can instantly make any outfit look super luxe and put together. Just this season, Chanel’s chain belt came back on-trend and Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta’s Saddle belt is one of the most in-demand products this season.
To help guide you on your belt search, we’ve put together the best designer belts on the market which can be used to cinch blazers, complement dresses, and buckle up bike shorts. Read on for the four best belts that will go with practically every outfit.
(1) Gucci Horsebit Belt
Gucci’s Horsebit belt is one of the most recognized designer belts due to its interlocking G and signature Gucci horse-bit motif. Guccio Gucci first came up with the iconic horsebit detail after working in The Savoy and admiring the English racing set and almost a century later, it's one of the brand's most recognizable symbols. Both classic and sleek, it can be styled with just about anything - try it with dresses, jeans, or skirts.
(2) Chanel Chain Belt
Chain belts are officially back and more popular than ever. Among the 90s and early 2000s styles that have made a comeback, the chain belt has to be one of our favourites. The accessory was a staple on vintage Chanel and Versace runways, and recently street-style stars have been reviving the chain belt by wearing it in fresh, unique ways. Try pairing it with everything from boilersuits, over jackets or even to compliment a sporty lurex one-piece and you have yourself a look that is very 2020.
(3) Bottega Veneta Horsebit Belt
If you're looking for an easy way to a high-fashion spin to your outfit, then Daniel Lee's sculptural Horsebit belt is the style to adopt now. Crafted in Italy from two slender strips of leather, each is strategically punched with holes so you can wear it around your waist or hips, while the smooth gold clasp is intended to resemble a horseshoe.
(4) Valentino Logo Belt
This Valentino belt is probably the most polished take on the logo trend, instantly recognizable, it’ll elevate everyday outfits with an easy elegance. Crafted from grained leather punctuated, it’s punctuated with an antiqued gold-tone metal V-logo buckle that secures with a push-through fastening. Wear it this fall with a trench coat and over-the-knee boots.
