I Just Styled Gucci's Best-Selling Cult Belt 3 Ways

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 around, with sales continuing to grow—it's expected to hit the £8.5 billion mark (10 billion) in 2020Thanks to Alessandro's exciting and fresh vision countless other designers and high street brands have followed the edgy-grandma-meets-the-seventies trend. But the real crux of the fashion house's success lies in its accessibility. While some opt to wear the brand head-to-toe, others can easy 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 your mum. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has one in her wardrobe, as do Dakota Johnson and Cate Blanchett. 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. 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.

Style Notes: My personal preference for styling a thin belt is to wrap it over a chunky knit. I love the contrast between something heavy and something lighter. It also adds definition to your waist but the belt doesn't detract away from a statement jumper.

Style Notes: The medium-sized belts from Gucci are often seen worn with jeans. And I'm definitely all for that as an everyday kind of look. But if you want to make it feel a little more fun? Add it to your favourite dress. While I've opted to colour match with a white belt and white dress, there's no reason why you couldn't make it a black belt and clash it with a floral dress.

Style Notes: I've seen a lot of street stylers wearing theirs cinched around a blazer and I wanted to see if it was as good for me. Spoiler: it was. Ideal for if you love an oversized blazer but want to break give your waist definition.
