One of the best ways to finish off your look with a cherry on top is with a belt. A belt can do miracles for just about any outfit, from creating a waistline to simply tying your whole look together. Our team at Uniqcorn Exceptionnel has compiled a list of ten of the best brands with the greatest equestrian belts (which of course – double as an everyday accessory).
A classic with a variety of options, belts from this brand are classy and elegant. A staple in some of the most famous riders’ wardrobes (such as the stunning Jessica Springsteen), the Italian designer belt comes in different width, sizes, and colors. A popular choice is GG belt with the double G buckle. If you wish to add an even more equestrian vibe to your outfit, Gucci offers a brown, wide leather belt with a bit decoration. There are also more concelead options such as the Guccie Blondie thin belt. All of the women’s belt options offered by Gucci can be found here.
Another brand which caters to different tastes, Louis Vuitton offers reversible belts that enables the user to get the most out of the product. This brand allows for a bold yet casual look with the black leather and gold LV initials. The reversible belt is available in a variety of sizes and leather color (including Cream, Gris Perle, and Safran). In addition, the French brand produces belts in fun colors such as blue and red. All of Louis Vuttion’s belt collection can be found here.
Another high-end French brand which makes some of the most immaculate pieces on earth, belts included of course. Like their competitors, the brand offers reversible belts, but they are all siginfictantly thinner (around 13mm to 24mm as opposed to the general 30mm to 40mm found in Louis Vuittion). The buckles are a customizable part of the belt, with a wide range of color (such as gold, pink gold, silver, lime, rose Jaipur, noir, vert jade, and bleu brume) and shapes (such as Escale, Gamma, Dollier De Chien, Mini Constance, and more). The color of the leather is also customizable, with seventeen different combinations to choose from. These combinations includes Orange with Rose Jaipur, Gold with Étoupe, Mauve Pâle with Vert-De-Gris, and more. A smart choice from this brand would be the 13mm Gamma belt buckle & reversible leather strap.For more about the Hermes belts and their options, follow this link.
