If there is one accessory that has had a strong run the last few seasons, it has been the Gucci belt. The signature logo and authentic black leather have been seen all over our Instagram feed, however, it comes with a hefty price tag. The past few years there have been waitlists to even buy this belt, however, now that it’s widely available on the Gucci website I always get asked if it’s still worth buying today.
When it comes to buying designer, it’s not always something that I do on an impulse because of the price tags. I always want to make sure that it will be a timeless piece that I will be able to style for years to come. In this case, I feel that the Gucci belt is definitely an accessory that will last a lifetime in the fashion world. With it’s elegant and simple design, you’re able to wear it with a plethora of outfits without it going out of style.
Here are my reasons..
First of all, there are so many different ways that this belt can be styled. I’ve worn mine so often that I’ve definitely gotten my moneys worth out of it. I first started wearing it with my jeans and shorts until I felt more comfortable styling it and starting putting it over my blazer or baggy sweater dresses for the Winter.
Second, there are some pieces that will never go out of style and this is one of them. No matter how much time passes the classic Chanel handbag, Christian Louboutin pumps, and Manolo’s will never go out of style. With that said, the Gucci belt is in the same tier with them as a staple fashion piece. The classic design makes it easy to wear no matter the season as well.
Third, this belt is so versatile that it could be dressed up or down! Whether you’re running errands and wearing it on your jeans or going to an event and wearing it over your blazer.
MY BIGGEST RECOMMENDATION:
If you’re looking to purchase the belt, buy it in your regular size and then go to Gucci after and have them add an extra hole! I bought it in my regular size and then had them add two holes so I could wear it on my waist too. It’s the best thing I could’ve done because I can wear it with my jeans and as a waist belt as well.
