Wanna repeat outfits but still look like a showstopper? We’ve got you covered!
We know a magical accessory that looks spectacular makes a statement and ties an outfit together… literally!
Did the pun give it away?
Yes, we’re talking about sustainable belts!
The essence of sustainable fashion lies in minimalism. And what’s a better way to minimize the menaces of fast fashion than to splurge on sustainable accessories? They help you reuse your outfits without making them look the same.
One of our favorite such accessories is sustainable belts. They look so chic and are topping the fashion trends charts all around the world. Plus, they have the approval of the most esteemed fashion divas like Kendal Jenner, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Anniston.
But styling these eco-friendly belts to look as enchanting as they look on these icons is an art. And keeping this art to ourselves would be a heinous crime. So buckle up as we spill our secret 5 ways to style a sustainable belt.
Summer dress and brown sustainable belt for hot summer days
Cool off the summer heat by cinching your light-colored summer dresses with a petite brown belt by 1 People in regenerated cellulose fiber. The muted color with a brass buckle refreshes your outfit for a hot day and is perfect for a casual lunch with friends or a quick stroll down the park.
Plus, the belt uses Piñatex®, an eco-friendly alternative to leather. Unlike their leather kins, sustainable belts do not promote deforestation, take up thousands of gallons of water, or suck up loads of energy in production. Leather tanning also emits poisonous chemicals into the atmosphere, so you’ll want to steer clear of it.
A logo-Stamped sustainable belt for a festive event or your everyday look
When in doubt, choose a thin black belt with a stamped buckle. It looks classy and instantly separates you from the crowd.
The Antwerp Piñatex® Thin Belt has the logo of its manufacturer – 1 People. It is a Danish sustainable luxury fashion brand, and carrying its emblem on your waist shows how much you care for the planet. The dying is certified with the GOTS label to ensure the sustainability of the whole product and respects the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
Oversized tops and Piñatex skinny belts to be trendy in all circumstances
We saw the advent of the oversized trend in 2020 and are yet to witness its demise. From shoulder-dropping sweats to jumbo blazers, it looks like the movement is nowhere near over.
But even the slimmest models understand the need to cinch them at the waist for a flawless silhouette. Skinny sustainable belts serve the purpose perfectly. They don’t steal your top’s thunder but add a touch of glamor and sustainability to it. Tie them high on your ribcage to use your top as a minidress or around the waist with a bottom.
Go bold with a plain dress and a thin organic belt
A monochrome summer or sweater dress quickly dulls its sparkle if you wear it on repeat. Give your long dresses a second chance at life by pairing them with an eco-friendly belt. Wearing those thick babies may take some courage, but remember that glamour comes in all sizes.
And do the planet a favor by looking for sustainable belts for every style you adorn. You will want leather alternatives, eco-friendly fabrics, and a conscious manufacturing and supply chain.
Glitters and sustainable belts: the perfect combo
A little sparkle goes a long way. Breathe life into your plain dresses with a rhinestone-studded belt. They can take your outfits from streetwear to red-carpet-worthy and claim all the attention for you.
Opt for pearls, glitter, Swarovski, or crystals for that extra bling, and you have a stunning sustainable accessory for your next formal event. Tone down with a monochrome outfit if you fear overdressing.
