As far as It accessories go, we can usually count on a bag or pair of shoes to blow up, but it's not all too often that a belt becomes the most coveted piece of the season. If any brand could pull off a style surprise, however, it's Gucci (the brand that basically dominates fashion week). We first saw the brand's signature logo belt pop up all over our Instagram feeds a few seasons ago, but now the blogger favourite has found a second wind as a must-own among our favourite A-listers, too.
The cult item makes for an easy way to dress up a simple jeans-and-tee combination, but as proven by the looks below, it can also be used for dressier ensembles. So if you're ready to up your accessory game, take a cue from your favourite trendsetters, and give the belted look a try. Start scrolling to see how celebs are wearing their Gucci logo belts, and then shop our edit of the best belts for every budget to re-create the look.
