The revival of the Y2K style has now flooded social media with tank tops, sports glasses, glittery accessories, and even slit pants. However, the real star of the catwalk this season is an item more familiar than ever: a leather belt. They were an integral part of 2000s fashion, especially when worn two to three at a time.
Bella hadid challenges you back to the 2000s with the belt layering trend
Trendy leather straps are the highlight on the 2022 runway of Miu Miu and Blumarine fashion houses. Along with low-rise pants and skirts, each added belt makes the hips exponentially thicken, so why not wear a lot to maximize the sexiness?
But it’s not Miuccia Prada, and it’s not the year 2000 that started this layering trend. Back in the 70s, the jeans waistband of teenagers pursuing the punk style at that time was “attached” by many large belts intertwined. Usually, it will be a combination of a smooth belt with a keyhole. An arrogant manifesto by newborns in the context of the old-new transition.
The reason belt layering is popular with punks is that it has no rules. Usually, in order to avoid a cluttered look, the believers only use two belts. They can be of the same color, material, and size. Another safe move that girls can refer to is to combine a leather belt with a chain belt to create an opposing layering screen but not a crisscross. Do not forget to favor clothes with a few layers to avoid accidentally blinding the “money” highlight.
The pinnacle of belt layering is the belt dress design. In the late ’90s, Jean-Paul Gauthier took to his always bold and unique catwalk BDSM-inspired designs: lots of leather and loops. It becomes a great inspiration for young designers in the future. In the Born Pink teaser, BLACKPINK Rosé also wears a belt dress version from No Name Studio, a Mexican brand.
