About the Belt Report

The Belt Trend Report compiles the latest styles in belt design and construction, from high waist buckles for women to custom leather belts for men. Businesses must recognize that fashion for women differs greatly from their male counterparts, creating demand from both genders. Our report looks at belt trends from both perspectives, whether it is design features on purses and handbags or menswear staples like leather jackets, suede boots or rawhide belts. Finally, we examine how belts are being incorporated into other fashion pieces, creating new items like the belted dress and buckled boots.
