While it may seem minor, the humble belt appears to be making a bit of a comeback. The simple accessory can really tie together a look whether it’s this year’s belted blazer trend or your favorite jeans and t-shirt combo. From woven leather belts for texture to candy-colored designer ones, we rounded up our favorite choices for spring.
Let’s start with the basics. A plain, everyday kind of belt like this black Janessa Leone, this brown Italian leather belt from J.Crew, or this black leather belt from COS, all of which have low-key gold buckles that go with everything. I am positively obsessed with this Saint Laurent belt in a dark mahogany brown, but the double buckle feature gives it a little bit of extra pizzaz to elevate the basic. This Anthropologie belt has a similar vibe, but instead of a double buckle it has a triangle one!
With spring and summer right around the corner, I’m looking ahead to raffia and bamboo accents. J.McLaughlin’s Finley belt is a wearable version of a Gucci bamboo handle bag! The Dixie Linen belt feels like something out of a Nancy Meyers heroine’s wardrobe, and the Jayla white grasscloth belt with gold bamboo buckle feels like jewelry. You can get a similar look from a braided leather belt, like this white and gold buckled version or this more classic brown leather one.
Maybe you want a belt that’s a little bit more of a statement. We’ve got you covered! How about a black and white tweed belt that gives you color and texture? Banana Republic’s whipstitch belt, which gives off a corset-y, feminine vibe? Tory Burch’s laser-cut leather logo belt? Any of those would take a belted blazer outfit to the next level.
