‘That’ Gucci belt is everywhere at the moment. I’m sure you’ve seen it – the leather belt with the gold double G at the center. I don’t very often look at designer clothing or accessories but I just love it – it is like on of those wardrobe staples that you could wear over and over again. But..it retails at around £250. I definitely couldn’t justify spending so much on one belt, so I forgot about it. If you know me though, you will know I love a budget alternative or dupe. (my favourite find this year so far has been these Valentino Rockstud dupes!)
So when I spotted this belt in H&M, I bought it immediately! It has the same black, leather-look and a very similar looking gold clasp, reminiscent of the ‘GG’ on the Gucci belt. I know it isn’t exactly the same, but for over £200 cheaper, you really can’t go wrong! This was just £4.99. I have quite a small waist so I had to add in about 5 extra holes – so just worth knowing that it doesn’t come with many fastenings and you may need to do a bit of DIY.
I’ve been wearing this with my loose fitting, tapered trousers like in the photos. I love the way adding a statement belt like this one dresses them up. I’ve also been styling it with dresses, using it to pull the dress in around my waist to give looser dresses more shape.
For less than £5, I am so impressed with this dupe! Even if you didn’t have your eye on the Gucci version, this is a very happy wardrobe addition. It just seems to go with any outfit, and the gold is a classic colour. I can’t find the belt itself on the website, but it is still around in-stores.
Below, I’ve put together some other Gucci-inspired belt options. Happy shopping!
