Belts are traditionally overlooked and merely seen as a necessity to hold one’s trousers up. But over the decades, fashion trends dictated by designers and magazines have featured belts more prominently as a statement piece—thereby elevating its standing among other accessories. Let’s face it. A belt isn’t meant to match the colour of your shoes anymore. Perhaps it’s time to break some sartorial rules from time to time, with these five belts that create intrigue to your style.

GG Belt With Kingsnake Print

One of the most distinctive motifs of Michele-era Gucci, since his appointment as creative director, is the kingsnake embroidery—an homage to the fashion house’s history. If you’re looking for something bold and retro to pair with your high waisted trousers, this snake print belt is both louche and luxe.

Alyx Signature Strap Medium Rollercoaster Belt

Like it or not, streetwear has crept into every corner of fashion. But that doesn’t mean you’ll end up looking janky. Alyx, one of the trailblazers in the scene, is most famous for their buckle belt that’s been worn by A$AP Rocky and Kanye West. Sometimes keeping simple is the way to go when it comes to dressing up.

Berlutti Scritto Reversible Leather Belt

We understand that quality is just as important as the design, so you can be rest assured of Berluti’s craftmanship. Berluti’s Scritto design is lasered onto this reversible-buckle belt, giving a touch of pizzazz to this otherwise classical Italian design.

Maison Margiela Two-Toned Buckle Belt 

Are you someone who appreciates the boundary-pushing ideas in fashion? Maison Margiela’s non-conformist design philosophy will resonate with you. Simple strokes like an unconventional two-toned buckle can change the entire dynamic of an outfit. Incorporate it into your corporate get-up to break the monotony.

Burberry Vintage Check E-canvas and Leather Belt

First designed to be used as lining for trench coats in the 20s, the Burberry tartan has become one of the most iconic patterns in fashion. If you don’t mind a bit of plaid and want instant brand association, then this cream-coloured belt lends an air of dignity without looking too casual.
