If there’s one brand that has been inescapable over the past few years it’s been Gucci. Since 2015, under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele, the brand has become one of the hottest fashion houses in the world. Thanks to Alessandro’s exciting and fresh vision countless other designers and high street brands have followed the “edgy grandma from the ’70s” trend. But the real crux of the fashion house’s success lies in its accessibility. While some opt to wear the brand sunglasses-to-platforms, others can easily dip their toe in with a bag or a pair of shoes. But one of the easiest ways to get the Gucci look? Wear one of the now-iconic double G belts.
It has a cool but goes-with-everything-in-your-wardrobe appeal that makes it a must for both die-hard fashion lovers and not really fashion inclined people. To keep it interesting, the brand has re-imagined the GG belts in different ways—from the classic black, brown, and white offerings to more embellished styles that will sate the more flamboyant dressers’ fashion appetites.
Initially, the Gucci belts were debuted by Michele back in 2015, paired with matching jackets or on low-slung trousers. But then there were more interesting outfits including a metallic green suit with one of the now-classic brown GG belts around the waistband of the trousers. A combo that still looks good even five years later—not an easy feat when contending with fashion’s constantly changing trends.
Street stylers were also quick to wear the belt too. I’ve personally lost count of the number of times I’ve
seen it being worn when out and about at fashion weeks. To prove just how easy they are to wear, I’ve
styled the belts—one thin, medium, and thick in different ways to prove just how versatile these belts are.
