Saint Laurent [YSL] Belt Review and Buying Guide

Thinking of buying a YSL belt, I recently did and here is my honest review of this belt including what other sizes belts from the brand you could buy. And also sharing the best places to buy the belt from.

About the Brand

Saint Laurent or YSL is a minimalist designer brand founded in 1962 in Paris, France. 

It’s one of the most known luxury brands that features everything ready to wear and beauty products as well. 

But the focus has always been edgy minimal style portraying mostly neutral and blacks mirroring its founder “Yves Saint Laurent”.

I don’t own many products from the brand except a Work Tote bag and now this belt. But there puffer bags as I call them have been the most popular styles that you will see women rocking everywhere. 

The price point of the brand is around the same as Burberry which is on the mid range of designer brands.

Price, Size and Color

Name: YSL Laque Monogram Leather Belt

Price: $525

Color: Crema Soft (White)

Waist Size: 85 

Belt Thickness: 1 inch

Material and Durability

Honestly, there is a reason women are obsessed with this belt. The calfskin leather is so soft to touch that you can’t stop touching it. I am being honest, but the leather isn’t flimsy. It wraps pretty softly, but you won’t see any creases after buckling.

Its also lightweight with minimal hardware, so your buckle will not sag the belt which is a common problem I have seen with belts that have heavy hardwares.

I have been using this belt for about 3 to 4 months with blue and black jeans, and have not seen and discoloration of the leather. 

But if you are a bit concerned you can always put leather stain protectant spray the first time you take out.

Fit

The 1 inch belt is a really versatile thickness. This belts works on jeans as well as on skirts. This is exactly the reason I  bought it. 

The thickness is just enough to flattering my denim outfits. But I can also easily wear it with dresses. The 85 size works well with the logo buckle, I dont need any other buckles.

Overall Thoughts

I definitely made the right choice in buying this belt. It’s really soft and versatile. It adds the right amount of waist thickness for me when I wear anything high waisted. 

I also love the minimal hardware which was the biggest reason I bought this belt. This helps me in wearing the belt to work or events where I don’t want my outfit to scream designer. 

Since the buckle and the loop is made well that it won’t scratch the leather, I see this leather belt lasting me for a long time. 

Which YSL Belt Should You Buy?

This is not the only size of the YSL Laque monogram belt you can buy, so let’s checkout what other options would be versatile and also come color choices. 

Color Options

If you want to buy this exact belt and dont have a black belt, I think you should pick the black belt. but this belt does come in 3 different shades – black, white and brown.

Size Option

The same Laque monogram belt comes in 3/4 inch thickness and 1.2 inches thickness. 

The thinner one is perfect for those of you who have an hour glass waist or if you are petite. This will be the perfect thickness. 

If you are taller than 5 ft 6 inches or want to only wear this belt with dresses, then the 1.2 inches of the belt thickness will work for you.
