Ditch your leather belt for the so on trend rope belt (Photos)

We are saying yes to this trend

Rope belts are a cool way to add edge to an outfit or give it a bohemian feel. Rope belts are unisex and can be worn on pants or even over a summery dress. The nautical-inspired belt has infinite styling possibilities, making it a necessary wardrobe staple. As with many fashion trends, if you do not have one, you can always DIY and in this case, you could use a lengthy shoe string or make a belt from a rope (the clothes hanging line kind) by cutting up a white twisted rope and burning the edges a little bit.

This year, statement belts have been huge, such as Virgil Abloh's Off-White industrial belt which is still in vogue at the moment. Even though the rope belt trend has been there for a while, it's one of those perennial trends that never really go out of style. If you're one to love standing out, ditch the leather belt and go for a rope or string belt for your casual weekend looks. You could either tie it in the middle or a little off to the side and hey, length-wise, feel free to have it either super long or a tie it into a bow. And, no, you will not look like a monk or priest, suffice to say, it's actually a really edgy accessory and it's oh so 2018. Don't believe us?
