7 Discreet Designer Logo Belts To Dress Up Your Look
Logos and monograms have had a yo-yo popularity over the years. In the early 2000’s, logo mania was all the rage, as fashion mavens bedecked themselves with branded insignias; it was practically logo upon logo, from head to toe—as was believed to be high-fashion then. Then in just a few years, the logo craze flipped its head as buyers opt for more label-less apparel, going for a more minimal chic. And now, again, we see the resurging popularity of logo embellished fashion—sort of.
Here’s where it gets complicated: These days, the fashionable set do want a highly-recognizable brand label, but also not too blatant. We want luxury, but also subtlety. We want our dress to be street-casual and chic, but also Instagram worthy. To cut the chase short, the easiest way to achieve this logo non-logo chic is to keep your brand flaunting to your accessories. While you can certainly achieve this with your cult worthy handbag, why not switch up a bit with some belt action?
Yes, logo belts are a huge craze in womenswear now, with buckles as large and adorned as those of menswear. Best of all, these logos have been upgraded to give a more subtle, yet more intricate look; most of the time, it just looks like you’re wearing an ornate belt. But for the few fashion aficionados who spot your buckle, they’ll know that you’re in on the subtle-branding game:
