If we had to choose a single trend to define 90s fashion, it would be logomania. A branding boom made way for designers to distinguish themselves using loud, striking logos that were impossible to ignore. Style icons like Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw helped perpetuate the trend with over-the-top outfits and elaborate accessories. For a while, luxury logos were everywhere, but things took a turn once the recession hit, and excessive spending slowed. But luckily for logo lovers, it appears the craze is making a comeback. Want to show loyalty to your favorite logo, but don’t want to risk looking like an advertisement? We suggest starting small with an accessory, such as a stylish designer belt. Check out our list of the best designer belts for logo lovers, and discover your favorite!
Gucci GG Marmont Belt
True fans of fashion know that the Gucci Marmont belt is one of the most highly sought after styles for trendy women’s waistlines. Crafted from soft calfskin leather, the Gucci Marmont belt boasts the brand’s unmistakable GG logo in a brilliant brassy hue that’s hard not to notice. One specific variation of the belt is even reversible, providing the option to wear black or brown, depending on your outfit. The best part about the Gucci Marmont belt is its versatility. You’ll often see it styled in a number of ways, as it can be dressed down to look casual, or dressed up to look more chic. Rock this belt with your favorite pair of jeans and a tucked in tee, or wear it around your waist with your best-fitting designer dress. No matter how you choose to wear it, the Gucci Marmont belt is undeniably fierce and fashion-forward.
Fendi FF Belt
Fendi is a label famous for its logo, which can be found on just about all of their items. So it’s no wonder their Fendi FF logo belt is an all-time best seller for the brand. Known as an inverted “Zucca,” the famed Fendi logo is actually the brainchild of legendary designer, Karl Lagerfeld. Favored by fashionistas everywhere, Fendi logo belts are offered in every color imaginable, but always feature their signature gold-tone hardware. Style a basic tee-shirt dress with a fabulous Fendi belt around the waist to elevate your look to the next level.
Chanel Chain Logo Belt
Interested in a designer belt that’s a bit dressier? Add a little glitz and glamour to any outfit with a classic Chanel chain belt. Perfect for pairing with a luxurious little black dress, Chanel’s chain belts often include eye-catching elements like pearls, charms, and of course—their trademark interlocking logo. The ultra slim design makes this belt feel slightly less practical than the others on this list. However, their dazzling designs are what make Chanel chain belts so popular.
Valentino Garavani Belt
As far as oversized belts go, few rival the ever-popular Valentino Garavani belt. While actually available in several sizes, it appears that fashion influencers and street stylists alike prefer the bigger, bulkier variation. Much like other belts on this list, the Valentino V logo belt is conveniently reversible, giving wearers the flexibility to mix and match how they accessorize. Cinch your waist with an oversized Valentino Garavani belt for a look that’s chic and runway ready.
Hermès Constance Belt
If you’re searching for the best designer belt with a high resale value, look no further than the classic Hermès Constance belt. Similar to the Gucci Marmont, the Hermès Constance belt is reversible, typically with one side that’s neutral, and another that’s bold and bright. The H logo belt buckle and calfskin leather strap come packaged separately, and are available in a range of colors and finishes, so there’s truly something for everyone. Hermès is a leader in luxury fashion, and always makes a worthwhile investment thanks to the brand’s astonishing resale values. In fact, some sites report that the Hermès Constance belt has the potential to sell for up to 95% of its original retail price.
Moschino Logo Plate Belt
There’s arguably no better accessory for logo lovers than the famed Moschino logo plate belt. Designed to be daring, the Moschino logo plate belt boldly spells out the brand’s name in attention grabbing gold-plated letters. You can settle for basic black, or opt for something splashier, like vibrant yellow or pretty pastel pink. They even have printed variations, with cartoon-like caricatures of jack-o-lantern faces, and much more. If your personal style is fearless and trendy, then the Moschino logo plate belt is ideal for you!
Louis Vuitton Epi Twist Belt
Add something dynamic to your waistline with a textured Epi Twist belt from one of the pioneers in luxury, Louis Vuitton. This sophisticated belt makes an excellent finishing touch to any outfit, with a sleek dual-tone buckle that’s sure to liven up your look. Crafted from quality Epi calf leather, this is one accessory you can count on lasting a lifetime with proper love and care.
Saint Laurent Celtic Belt
When it comes to narrowing down the best designer belts, we would be remiss not to recognize Saint Laurent’s masterfully designed Celtic belt. The belt’s buckle is delicately engraved with Celtic-inspired symbols intricately weaved with the brand’s beloved logo. Shoppers can choose either a textured crocodile leather, or a smooth calfskin, and also have the option of either a square or round belt buckle. If you have an eye for elaborate designs with intricate details, then the Saint Laurent Celtic belt is a must-have!
