Why: Every time I fly anywhere, I find the flight attendant’s instructions on how to buckle and unbuckle the seat belt, wholly unnecessary. I know, they have to do that. But I’ve often thought – if only my favourite belt buckle was so easy to use and utilitarian chic. Apparently I’ve been living under a rock because a company is already offering such belts with authentic airline seat buckles. Skybelts are aptly named and wonderfully, whimsically hip. I particularly like the camo print belt with plain buckle – the jury might be out on whether full-on camo pants are in style (fashionistas vote out; hipsters vote in) but this belt is a camo accent so it toes the trend line. My favourite way to add some sparkle to jeans and a tee is with the rhinestone star buckle. Skybelts offers a ton of colour choices in belt and they also have skyclips if you’re feeling the pop art vibe.
Price: starting at $32.95 with interchangeable belts for only $12.95
