Buckle Up: Best Men’s Designer Belts to Bolster Your Outfit

These days a belt is so much more than just a tool for holding a man’s trousers in place – it’s a style accessory that makes a subtle personality statement with any outfit.

Worn with a tucked-in shirt and displayed in full view, it can even become the star of the ensemble. Ranging from classic black or brown leather to textile, workwear-inspired belts, nowadays lack of choice is not an excuse – there’s a men’s designer belt for everyone.

Here’s a look at some of the best men’s designer belts you need to know about.
