Have you all noticed that designer belts are all the rage again? And while I think the Gucci belt is the most common, there are some other more unique brands on the market. Since 2022 is the year of Valentino so far, I opted for their reversible wide style. But here are my other personal picks for the luxe designer belt trend.
Valentino (pictured): I love that this belt is reversible in two neutral shades. The buckle has some gravitas to it and feels expensive.
Hermes: The most classic luxe belt! I love the different color combinations and the iconic H buckle that is recognizable from afar!
Loewe: I have a thing for the anagram logo, and I love that this luxe brand is a little less common.
Dior: There’s something about the Montaigne style “CD” that is so sleek and classic. Another reversible belt, you’ll have this one for years to come.
If you’re a fashion lover like me, then you know that this love extends well beyond the closet. It’s a love that may spill over from what you choose to wear to what you showcase in your home! Case in point… I have a love affair with fashion books. I have them on most tables and shelves in our house. They can be pricey, but you can also find great ones on sale at bookstores, second-hand or vintage stores, and even TJ Maxx! Here are some of my favorite fashion books that I have displayed around my house!
Since I was pregnant and working from home this year, flat shoes looked incredibly more appealing to me. Of course, I’m not one to throw on sneakers often, so I gravitated towards a dressier flat. Designer shoes are still my first love, so I rounded up the flats that stole my heart (and my paychecks) this year!
1. Gucci Brixton Loafers– Classic Gucci loafers which give you the option to fold down the back. I personally wouldn’t do that since I also have the backless “Princetown” style. I opted for the soft cream color which looks amazing with all black.
2. Louboutin Mocalaureat Loafers – I love the deep navy color that can also pass as black. The “tattooed” loafer details offer a modern take on a traditionally masculine shoe. Plus, a red-bottom flat is a total flex!
3.Chanel Slingbacks– the most gorgeous shades of pink in this tweed make these flats a showstopper. I love the slingback shape and the signature Chanel cap-toe in grosgrain. The pink may be difficult to locate, but the other colors are just as gorgeous. I also love the metallic gold leather option!
4. Tod’s Drivers– These Tod’s loafers are a classic shoe and such a staple for every wardrobe. In buttery soft leather or suede and offered in every shade of the rainbow, there is a style to suit everyone’s taste. Jason actually has 2 pairs which he wears constantly, so I wanted to add a comfy pair to my collection. I opted for orange, but I also love the blue and yellow.
5. Gucci Jordaan Loafers– A similar shape to the loafers above, the Jordaan style is more structured and does not have a foldable back. I love this pair of over-the-top flats that have the signature Gucci logo printed all over in metallic thread. Somehow, the gorgeous shade of blue manages to seem like a neutral.
