Let’s Talk Trend: Statement Buckles

Hello lovelies! I was scrolling through the Kate Spade new arrivals the other day when I noticed a new line of bags with a similar feature on each; a buckle. Statement buckle belts have been very popular for awhile now, and I sport the trend all the time with this Topshop belt. It looks like this trend has moved on to bags now, too! Brands like Gucci, Burberry, and Alexander Wang all have bags with a statement buckle of some sort.

The trend comes in array of shapes, styles, and materials. Some buckles are metal, like this Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme mini bag, and some leather, like the Kate Spade Carlyle Street Kallie.

How fun is this Topshop Rosie bag with a studded square buckle?! It’s edgy and would be the perfect statement bag!

Buckles have been popping up all over shoes as well. These Topshop studded booties are the perfect combination of edgy and chic. I’d pair them with a white tee, distressed jeans, and an oversized blazer.

Even though it’s freezing where I live, I have to include these Gap block-heel booties. The buckles do not make as much of a statement as a few of the previously mentioned bags and shoes, but they still pop and create a fun twist on the shoe!
