Accessories can sometimes be an afterthought to an outfit, but we all know that the right (or wrong) one can have significant consequences. Take a belt, for example. An accoutrement that has the very important job of keeping a man’s pants up, belts also have the power to complete a look. And since they’re literally placed at the centerpiece of your clothing, they can also be the unlikely star of your sartorial show — especially if you go with a belt that makes a statement. (Bonus points if you go bold with your sunglasses, too.)

When it comes to the best men’s designer belts, many of them run the gamut from showy to easily identifiable (like Gucci’s famous “double G”) to the more low-key, classic designs that can be worn during any occasion that happens to pop up. They can dress up a simple hoodie or denim jacket, or add the finishing touch to your head-to-toe designer look. But one thing is certain: Whether you want your belt to be a main character in your style story, or a more covert component of your outfit, you can’t go wrong with a well-made, high-quality design.

Updating your spring/summer wardrobe? Check out more than 15 of the best men’s designer belts below, from handy reversible options to ones that have a rock ‘n’ roll edge.

Thom Browne’s instantly recognizable tri-color grosgrain accent comes out to play in this classic brown leather belt with a gold-tone buckle. The British designer has been sported by everyone from Cynthia Erivo, Rebecca Ferguson and Gigi Hadid to Ben Simmons, Steven Yeun, Alton Mason and others at the 2024 Met Gala.

This classic black LV belt will match with essentially any outfit, both casual and dressy. The etched logo on the keeper loop offers a luxe feel without doing too much. Basically, it’s the ultimate closet staple.

The iconic logo is featured on numerous Ferragamo belts, so you have your fair share of options. However, this one is a great choice since it’s basically two belts in one — black and brown — thanks to the reversible design.

No designer belt collection is complete without a piece from Saint Laurent. The French fashion house’s Slim Leather Belt is a testament to its effortlessly chic design codes, as seen in the classic YSL logo and simple gold tone buckle.

Looking to break out of the old black belt rut? One of the best men’s designer belts for making a high-fashion statement is this 35mm webbed accessory from Louis Vuitton. The sporty piece boasts a matte black LV Initiales logo buckle and a subtle nod to the house’s monogram print. The moody gradient teal colorway is sure to make your looks pop through spring and summer, too.

You don’t have to spend way overboard to get a good designer belt. With its timeless leather design and single-prong, gold buckle, you can wear this Ralph Lauren belt with casual jeans or work-appropriate slacks. The leather keeper also features the brand’s trademark RL logo.

If subtle isn’t your style, go with Versace’s statement-making web belt featuring the Italian fashion house’s iconic La Greco motif and a bold gold medusa buckle.

This isn’t your average black belt. This Fendi leather belt (also available in brown and gray) is made in Italy and features a reversible design with a polished metal FF logo fastening.

Reversible belts, like this Tom Ford one, are a smart way to ensure you’ve got a belt that can work with almost every outfit while saving space in your closet. Made in Italy, this belt is constructed from scratch-resistant, full-grain leather so you’ll have it in your collection for a long time.

With its bold enamel tiger buckle, Kenzo’s playful aesthetic is seen in this black leather belt by the Parisian luxury label founded by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada. (It’s now owned by LVMH.)
