Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.One of the most underrated accessories out there? Belts. Belts really just do it all. They hold our pants up, which is always a great bonus, but they also offer us an opportunity to add a stylish accent to our outfit — one we don’t have to carry around like a handbag or constantly adjust and readjust like a scarf. They’re functional, they’re fashionable and they can seriously pull together an outfit that isn’t quite hitting the mark!- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Designer belts are 100% worth the investment in our eyes. You could be wearing a $5 tee and $20 jeans and still look chic as ever with a designer belt between the two. You can totally wear it every day too! They simply don’t go out of style, and they also make an incredible gift for someone special in your life. We picked out a bunch that anyone would love to have on hand (or hips), from leather, to skinny, to wide, to even belt bags. And the color options are running wild! Whether you’re looking for Gucci, Coach or maybe Michael Kors, we’ve got just the belt for you!Quick PicksBest skinny designer belt: Chloé Skinny Leather BeltNordstromThis Burnt Mahogany belt emits designer vibes like no other, but what else would you expect from a label like Chloé?
