SAINT LAURENT – YSL-Monogram Crocodile-Effect Leather Belt
If you’re looking for a smart but fashionable piece for business attire, take a look at Saint Laurent’s black crocodile-effect leather design. YSL’s logo first appeared in 1961, created by graphic designer Cassandre and it features here in the form on a silver monogram plaque. The narrow belt is Italian made, fastened with a classic silver squared buckle.
ACNE STUDIOS – Atticus Leather Belt
Acne Studios is a Swedish fashion house founded by Jonny Johansson in 1996. It’s become known for its effortless style. Casual, yet debonair, the Atticus chunky leather belt sports an antique gold-tone buckle and rounded tip subtly embossed with the brand’s logo.
GUCCI – Logo-Buckle Leather Belt
Make a statement with this smooth and slim black belt by Gucci. Its polished gold logo buckle is based on an archived 1933 design, by Aldo Gucci, the son of the label’s founder. Pack this versatile leather belt for your trip away to smarten up a pair of jeans, or complement to your suit.
THOM BROWNE – Tricolour D-Ring Grosgrain Belt
Add some colour to your wardrobe with this tricolour grosgrain belt. Thom Browne’s preppy design is a great fit for the summer months and warmer climes. Crafted in Italy, it has a slim silhouette with leather trim. The gold D-ring buckle ensures a perfect – and adjustable – fit, so there are no issues if it needs a little loosen after a long lunch.
BOTTEGA VENETA – Smooth Leather Belt
This belt has an unusual brushed silver-tone metal double-prong buckle fastening, a debossed logo and brown leather lining. The smooth tan leather lends itself to a number of looks and styles and can be paired with a tan satchel or holdall.
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN – Eternalou Leather Belt
Featuring a funky interlacing square double buckle, the polished gunmetal in this belt provides an up to date look. Flip over the leather outer to reveal a red underside, reflecting Christian Louboutin’s famed shoe soles. The Eternalou is made in Italy.
GUCCI – GG Leather Belt
This chocolate brown incarnation of the GG leather belt has a more muted, brass buckle than the polished gold version. Still showcasing the inimitable logo, the lacquered edge belt conveys a relaxed yet upscale style.
SONIA PETROFF – Aries Braided Silk-Cord Belt
This high fashion statement belt has more than a hint of vintage in the design, drawing on Sonia Petroff’s retro pieces from the mid to late 20th century. Italian made using braided silk cord with faux-ivory and carnelian cabochons, it features gold rams heads beside the lobster clasp. Wear it with a simple dress to accentuate the waist.
GUCCI – GG Faux Pearl-Embellished Leather Belt
Opt for a classic Gucci shape and colour, with glamorous embellishment in the form of faux pearls on a gold-tone logo. The Italian calfskin leather is soft and smooth, with a secure, solid buckle. Wear it across all seasons with anything from a chunky knit dress, to denims, to a lightweight longline coat.
BURBERRY – TB-Buckle Leather Belt
If you prefer player hues, choose this dove grey design from Burberry. This belt features a TB monogram, as created by Riccardo Tisci and the renowned and trendy British graphic artist Peter Saville. Made from smooth matte leather, it has a gold buckle along with an engraved logo on the side. Wear it over a jersey jacket for a cinched waistline.
ISABEL MARANT – Lecce Leather Belt
This Leece leather belt is the answer for those who find buckles uncomfortable or cumbersome. Isabel Marant’s minimalist design offers a wrap and slot fit allowing you to choose how and where you want to wear it – on the waist, or loosely slung at the hips. The super-soft leather melts into your frame ensuring you’re uber comfortable, whether working, travelling or socialising. Curved ends provide a gentle aesthetic, while the brand is subtly represented by logo-debossing on the interior.
SAINT LAURENT – Crocodile-Effect Leather Belt
Go for some old school allure, with this sophisticated wide crocodile-effect leather. A curved leather-covered buckle sits easily at the waist, accented with gold hardware for secure closure. Pair it with a tailored dress, high waisted trousers or to bring a graceful shape to a batwing sweater.
CHLOÉ – Logo-Engraved Leather Belt
Chloé’s slender chocolate-brown belt has an extra-wide gold-toned buckle, along with on-trend extra-large pinholes. It takes inspiration from the boho vibe of the brand’s Pre-AW20 lookbook while offering upscale sophistication. The buckle is engraved with the fashion house’s logo and has an extra keeper loop to ensure neat lines.
ACNE STUDIOS – Masculine Large Logo-Buckle Leather Belt
Rock a more androgynous look with Acne Studios’ tan belt. The silver-tone metal eyelets are a feature, giving a slightly retro feel. There’s also a lot of attention to detail going on, in the form of dark brown lacquered edging and an oval-shaped buckle with the brand’s Swedish address. It’s the perfect partner for stylish jeans or a fitted denim skirt.
