Leather and woven belts are a thing of the past. Who doesn’t want their waist supported by a rope belt? I sure do. It screams of creativity. Modern practicality. Streetwear ingenuity. What better way to spend your money then running to your local DIY store and buying metres of rope.
This trend focuses on style over functionality; people will look at you and think you are on to something. Or they might not. But it’s worth the risk, right?
For a nautical nod, opt for a natural colour or black. B&Q have you covered. Don’t tell the sales assistant that you went into a hardware store in a hunt for a fashion trend.
Tie the rope in the middle or off to the side for a more edgy feel. For length opt for regular or go extra-long.
If a rope is too extreme, try a shoelace. Take a trip to your local supermarket. Hunt down the shoe maintenance aisle and grab yourself the longest flat shoelace you can find.
Tie the shoelace in a bow or a casual knot.
or go extra long for an extended look
THE BUNGEE CORD
If a shoelace is too basic, try a bungee cord. For this head to your local mountain warehouse. Tell them that you plan to scale a cliff and need something secure for your waist. Little do they know.
