Just two years ago, the most coveted fashion item was undeniably the Gucci belt. The signature logo hardware and timeless leather made it an instant cult classic in terms of designer accessories. However, it also came with a hefty price tag, and securing one wasn’t easy – which means if you purchased one, it probably wasn’t an impulse buy. Fast forward to today, and the hype for the Double G buckle belt is not quite as large as it once was. You can actually go straight to the Gucci website or Nordstrom and snag it without fear of it being sold out everywhere – or having to get on a waitlist like I did. Since writing my Gucci Belt Sizing Guide, the most common question I’ve been getting lately is if the Gucci belt is still relevant and worth buying. So today, I’m sharing my honest thoughts…

In my opinion, the Gucci belt is definitely still worth buying because it’s a classic piece. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m usually late to the game when it comes to trendy designer pieces because I like to take my time making sure that I’m purchasing something I’ll actually wear forever – and not out of hype. The excitement around this belt has certainly cooled off by now, but it will likely stick around just like the Hermes belt. Here are the best reasons why the Gucci belt is still worth buying.
The Gucci belt certainly comes with a high price tag, but if you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen me style my belt with so many outfits all year long. In fact, I wear mine so often that the cost per wear is probably pennies. I first purchased the black one in 2017, then the pink version in 2018, and finally the white one earlier this year. The supple leather and sturdy hardware are both incredibly well-made and will last for years to come.
There are some things that will always be in style no matter how much time passes. Some of those timeless pieces include the Chanel flap bag, Louis Vuitton totes, and Christian Louboutin pumps. The Gucci belt sits on the same level those staple pieces. The classic design makes it ageless and seasonless – it looks just as great in the summer as it does during fall and winter.
This piece also happens to be one of the most versatile belts I own. The sleek, minimal design allows it to pair well with virtually anything. For more relaxed days, it elevates the most basic pieces, such as jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers. It even puts the finishing touches on dressier pieces like a Balmain Blazer and heels.
