So far 2024 has been a great year for trends. Having learnt some lessons from the 2010s, plucked the best trends from the ’00s, and absorbed precious inspiration from the ‘90s, style lovers have managed to pull together an amalgamation of some of the chicest key trends from the past few decades, to shape the way that fashion looks today.

Whilst the return of some key trends has felt like a natural evolution, the reemergence of others has taken us by surprise. But, with some very 2024 twists, it’s hard to understand why we haven’t been wearing them for longer. For me, no item speaks to this as well as the studded belt.  

Once found cinching the waists of ’90s fashion people, the iconic design latterly took on an indie sleaze edge, often featuring square studded detailing and a sharper finish, but now that the ’20s have got their hands on it, the new-season styles are looking fresher and chicer, retaining a subtler grungy feel with overarching elegant shape. Whilst there are lots of temping iterations cropping up amongst our favourite retailers, the fashion set can’t seem to stay way from one particular style.

Opting for a sleek black belt peppered with rounded studs, Khaite’s Benny Leather and Studs Belt (£490) has been stealing fashion hearts. Adding a polished element to a classic jeans and t-shirt pairing, the black leather belt has quickly become a new-season cult-buy. 

Whilst there’s no doubt that Khaite have perfected the art of the studded belt, the high street is laiden with affordable versions that carry the same polished edge.  From COS to Mango, read on to discover our edit of the best studded belts to buy now.
