Student Trend Saturday: Belts

 As we head into the new year, it’s only natural that many 2017 trends are falling to the wayside (read: chokers, bucket hats, bomber jackets and, thankfully, male rompers). Another trend that wasn’t meant to be in 2018? Corset belts. Fear not, however — belts are not categorically cancelled for 2018.

Case in point? The many, many style bloggers on Instagram who love displaying their Gucci belts. You know the one. Additionally, parachute belts are predicted to be a major trend in 2018, so you’ll likely soon be seeing your favorite bloggers adding a hint of sportiness to their outfits with this piece. And of course minimalist, classic leather belts will never go out of style.

The 2018 belt trend isn’t solely meant for runways and style bloggers. It’s totally wearable for anyone who wants to put a little bit of effort into styling, as evidenced by the following compilation of UCLA students spotted with outfits featuring an on-trend belt.

Scroll on for tons of inspo from your fellow stylish students!
