Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
A few months ago, I purchased a Gucci double-G buckle belt in the skinny version in the color “porcelain rose.” I’d been debating one for awhile and once I saw a couple of friends wear it in this color and style, I knew it would be a designer investment piece I’d get a ton of wear out of.
Nordstrom, one of my favorite shopping destinations (for everything from fashion, beauty, home decor and accessories -and more) carries my Gucci double-G buckle belt as well as a ton of other designer lines. They offer free shipping and returns, so you can feel confident in your investments! When I got my Gucci belt, I got so many DMs/messages about it, that I wanted to share a full review now that I’ve had it for a few months. GUCCI BELT Q&A
What size Gucci belt did I order?
I ordered size 85 and probably could have done an 80 (for reference I wear a 27 in jeans). Since so many styles are higher waisted now and in order to wear it with dresses and skirts, I’d recommend sizing down a size (unless you only plan to wear it with regular rise jeans or pants). I adore the way the belt looks cinching the waist of a dress or skirt, so sizing down ensures you’ll have enough belt holes to wear it both ways.
How often do I wear my Gucci belt?
I wear it anywhere from one to three times per week on average. The reason I love the skinnier belt so much is because it’s so chic and easy to wear with both denim and my work pants. The thicker version is gorgeous, but I didn’t see myself wearing it often because it’s such a statement piece and to be honest, I wouldn’t be comfortable wearing it to work. This one (and the porcelain rose color, too!) feels more subdued and subtle, while still making a statement and adding a little something extra to any outfit.
Which color should I buy?
It really depends on what you’re most drawn to and what you’d get the most wear out of. As I mentioned above, I think the porcelain rose is the perfect goes-with-everything neutral, but you can’t go wrong with the black, brown or any other color.
Was the Gucci belt worth the investment?
100% YES! I love it so much with jeans, denim shorts, skinny work pants, around the waist of dresses and skirts – it truly goes with everything. I also love how versatile the color is and how it looks fantastic with black work pants, a camisole and blazer but also with cutoff shorts and a white tee for the weekend. Most importantly, I truly look forward to wearing the belt every time I slip it on!
