Assorted Retailers

Not too long ago, menswear used to move at a fraction of the pace of its womenswear counterpart. Men’s accessory trends evolved at an even slower rate. But these days with creative directors of major fashion houses being treated like rock stars—I’m talking about the Virgils, the Kims, and the Rafs—menswear is the coolest it’s ever been.

A number of belt trends have emerged recently, including larger buckle sizes and a more utilitarian appearance that seems to be the norm for the street style crowd. Now’s definitely a good time to buckle up and upgrade your belt game.

To find the best belts for men to invest in now, we caught up with stylist Julian Antetomaso, the guy behind some of Khalid’s greatest fits. “I think the major belt trend that is holding strong in the men’s market is the tactical and industrial belt, which we can thank Virgil Abloh (Off-White), Heron Preston, and Matthew Williams (Alyx),” he says in an email. Utility-wear has been a key trend for some time now (remember the rise of the utility vest?) but it’s definitely easier to incorporate the look into your everyday style with a more tactile accessory like a belt.

From the coolest classics to new on-trend stunners, here are the 10 best men’s belts that’ll complete any outfit this season.

The silver hardware complements the dark supple feel of the Italian brown suede for a sophisticated look.

Take a bigger style risk with this alligator-texture-embossed calfskin leather belt. Definitely one way to elevate a more casual outfit.

“Telfar, known for its shopping bag which has become the new It bag in the past year, offers a classic vegan leather belt in black, tan, and white,” says Antetomaso. “Plus, the belt features the now-iconic T logo.” 

Loewe Reversible Silver Anagram-Buckle Belt



“I love a reversible belt in classic black and brown,” says Antetomaso. “I would opt for this Loewe option because of their beautiful logo, which was updated by M/M (Paris).”

Dior Saddle Belt Bag

“A combination of two hot items of the season— tactical belts and the Dior saddlebag,” says Antetomaso. “I love a two-in-one and the bag is also detachable, allowing you to style this item in multiple ways.”
