Marking the waist has made a major return on the runway. Below, we list the very best belts to buy now – from black basics to a pop of colour
Few accessories have the same impact as a belt. The wardrobe staple has wandered up and down our waists, spanned in size – ranging from extra-wide statement to a barely-there sliver of leather, and has been crafted in a multitude of materials. They’ve become signums of major maisons (just consider Paco Rabanne’s emblematic silver chain), while at the same time taking on an understated anonymity – a black strap changing the silhouette of most outfits without garnering any attention.
As such, the must-have accessory makes for an excellent investment. Below, find our favourite belts available to buy now.
For timeless appeal, a basic black belt is a no-brainer addition to any wardrobe. With such a minimal design, the devil lies in the details. Focus on the buckle when finding your forever piece – from Loewe’s silver anagram to The Row’s anonymous gold square.
As of late, some would argue that brown is the new black when sourcing your much needed neutrals. Spanning a range of hues, from greyish taupe to yellow-tinted leather, these brown belts are bound to catch your attention.
When you’ve already invested in your browns and blacks, a colourful choice makes for an excellent addition. Accentuate the waist of your white shirt dress with Klein Blue wrap, or why not make a statement with a pop of yellow?
