NGL, This $58 Madewell Belt Is Maybe My Best Buy of the Season So Far


Earlier this season, I tasked myself with trying on as many viral-status belts as I could get my hands on in an effort to determine which ones were actually worth the hype. I narrowed it down to just five, one of which was a $58 Madewell belt with a chunky, jewelry-like buckle that, in the weeks since, has only grown more internet-famous. Currently, it qualifies as a bestseller on Madewell’s website with 4.2 out of 5 stars and a dozen reviews. “I’m obsessed with this belt,” one reviewer wrote. “I ordered [it] in both colors. Some reviews say it’s stiff, which it is, but I prefer that. It makes it look more high-end.” And as someone who’s worn the genuine Italian leather belt on multiple occasions, I couldn’t agree more.

With its fame only growing by the day, I commend Madewell for jumping at the chance to drop three new color options in the affordable accessory: red-and-silver, ivory-and-silver, and black-and-gold. And yes, you (and I) need all three. Before the masses find out about these fresh arrivals and bring about a sell-out of your desired color, scroll down to shop the entire selection of Madewell’s viral chunky leather belts. Trust me, this will be $58 that’s well spent.
