Gucci Belts are NOT Hot
*Disclaimer: This is my comedic take on this, I do not mean direct offense at anyone*
Think your Gucci belt is hot? Think not. This gaudy, in-your-face trend is the epitome of the “I pay full tuition” AU student. There is not a single good reason as to why one person, nevertheless a college student, needs a belt that costs $450. Like yes, luckily the saggy pants trend is over, and we all figured out we need to wear belts but $450?? That’s a whole textbook AND an AU sweatshirt you could buy with that money. But seriously, why does anyone even want to attract attention to a belt, like ok cool not only do you spend an inordinate amount of money on a useless item, but that your pants stay up? Like yeah, weird flex but ok. By all means spend your (parents’) hard-earned money on whatever your heart desires but if you’re going to drop a bag like that, at least do it on something more exciting than the thing that holds your pants up. Besides drawing excessive attention to the fact that you paid an absurd amount of money for a piece of crappy metal, these tacky belts are one giant arrow to some girl’s perfectly toned SoulCycle/Orangetheory/CorePower stomach. When it comes down to it, no one needs to spend THAT much money on something to thread through your belt loops, like when did belts really become that exciting. If after all that you still think a Gucci belt is your must have, dream designer item, then Amazon is your go-to place to get some identical looking fakes! PSA all of you with Off-White, Ferragamo, and Louis Vuitton belts, this also very much applies to you.
