How To Wear The Waist Belt

Picture of India Doyle
Updated: 23 February 2017
Culture Trip brings you the skinny on how to wear this year’s biggest accessory, and where to buy it.

Given the world’s fresh obsession with denim – it was only a matter of time before savvy adopters started focusing on the accessories needed to add a further statement to their jean of choice. While it may have been a long ten (fifteen?) years, ’80’s-ophiles’ can finally rejoice: the waist belt is back.

After a hiatus which invited an understated, minimal approach to dressing, the new style to covet marries a simple strap with a statement buckle for a grown-up, pulled together look. Look no further than the Kenzo menswear catwalk or the fully-functional anorak pairings at Versace SS17 for inspiration. For a fuller effect, pile on the big buckles and clash with bright prints or statement silhouettes (in the style of Alberta Ferretti). You certainly won’t be accused of overdoing it.
