They are unassuming, functional, and more often than not ignored when compared to their accessory-counterparts bags and heels. However statement belts are making a glorious comeback on the runway and the red carpet. From Off-White to Dolce & Gabbana to Jacquemus, some of the hottest designers of the moment are embracing this humble accessory and giving it a cool spin. 

Belts in different sizes, textures, and colours can be seen around the waists of some of the biggest names in fashion – Priyanka Chopra‘s Michael Kors belt that she wore at CFDA awards, Sonam Kapoor‘s belted Delpozo suit, and Brie Larson’s Gucci gown with a bejewelled belt at the Oscars prove that these pieces are no longer just meant to be paired with pantsuits.

Leading the street style league, Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Victoria Beckham, and social media influencers have all embraced the trend of the big logo belts. Just in case you prefer keeping it subtle, take cues from Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora, and Alia Bhatt who have given slim belts a new spin by pairing them with everything from polka-dotted suits to breezy dresses.

What makes them stand out is their versatility – from brunch to boardroom, it works of all occasions. Here is our edit of this season’s perfect belts that can easily be looped in, no matter what the look.
