You guys know that the Gucci belt is a staple in my wardrobe, and I’ll no doubt be wearing it throughout 2020. It’s one of my favorite accessories ever because of how versatile it is – you can dress it up with tailored pieces or dress it down with denim on the weekends. I’ve worn mine in so many ways throughout the years that I’m certain I’ve exhausted the cost per wear by now. If you still haven’t gotten your hands on one, check out my Gucci Belt Buying Guide (for sizing info) and my thoughts on whether or not it’s still worth buying (here). I’m often looking for new ways to style my belt and managed to come up with 10 that you can try for the year ahead. Keep in mind, all of these can be achieved with your favorite leather belt and isn’t exclusive to just designer ones. Here are 10 fresh ways to wear the Gucci belt right now!

1. With an oversized blazer
Oversized blazers are one of the hottest trends of the year, and I’ll be honest that I didn’t I could pull it off with such a petite frame. However, a sharp blazer nipped in at the waist with a Gucci belt makes it more wearable. Complete the ensemble with skinny pants and sleek booties.

2. With leather leggings
Head-to-toe leather looks are on fire this year, and adding a logo belt is such a fun way to spruce up the trend. For something easy and effortless, I love wearing my leather leggings with a Gucci belt. Even though leather leggings technically don’t have loops, a belt around the waist makes them feel dressier and less like loungewear.

3. With a matching set
I continue to adore matching sets because they make getting dressed a breeze. However, sometimes a top and bottom of the same color or pattern can look a little bland. The addition of a Gucci belt in the middle helps break up the look and makes it look more elegant.

4. With bulky winter layers
I love wearing my Gucci belt with more casual looks too. When it is super chilly out, I’ll often throw on bulky layers like a puffer jacket or faux fur coat. The gold hardware on the Gucci belt always dresses up a pair of jeans and I love how it looks peeking out from underneath a coat.

5. With tailored separates
The Gucci belt is also a workwear staple that has a way of making your office wear infinitely chic! Since the belt is so minimal in design, you can easily pair it with tailored separates, like trousers and a blazer.

6. With jeans & a cutout sweater
The Gucci belt looks amazing with everything from jeans and a T-shirt to a sleek dress. But in case you feel like you’ve exhausted all of your options, remember that distressed jeans and a Gucci belt make a great foundation for a chic cutout sweater and statement earrings.

7. Over a jacket
When you can ditch the puffer jacket and opt for something more sleek like a longline coat, this is the perfect opportunity to show off your belt too. You can cinch the waist of your coat with the belt to keep it in place and accentuate your figure!

8. With denim on denim
A Gucci belt can work wonders on any matchy matchy outfit. With spring approaching, I’ll be swapping out my heavy winter coats for lightweight layers like a denim jacket. The Canadian tuxedo looks way more stylish and modern with a Gucci belt in the mix.

9. With a sweater dress
Spring and winter dressing are all about layers for me. One of my favorite outfits to date feature the Gucci belt gathered on top of a blazer and sweater dress. The concept of this outfit works for cardigans, utility jackets or trench coats too. I love that it can be worn from the office to date nights.

10. With jeans and a blazer
I’m all about mixing different aesthetics, whether that’s casual with tailored pieces or masculine with feminine elements. The Gucci belt is such a nice way to tie these contrasting looks together. A crisp, white tee loosely tucked into some high-waisted jeans is a no brainer. But with the addition of a Gucci belt, you have a look that’s casual yet cool. On some occasions, I will pair my Double G buckle belt with a matching logo bag. I find that doing so makes my outfit feel more cohesive and chic.
