    Default Hunter fashionistas, I need a belt

    I was thinking the Alessandro Albanese silver stirrup buckle, but the belt does not come in black. My mother always told me that my belt should match my shoes and my bag. Also I don't want my shadbelly peeking up to reveal a crazy colored belt, and with two kids and traveling, I am only packing one belt, sorry.

    I have some fashion forwardness going on with some of my show clothes and my new custom boots, so I do not want a big sparkly belt. However, I do want something special. What say you, COTH?

    I second the Ariat reversible. I also have the Ariat spur belt that's pretty cute.

    If you're not on a budget Hadfields has gorgeous snakeskin/leather belts http://www.hadfieldssaddlery.com/col...portswear.html.

    I have it in blue but its available in many colors and neutral shades. If you want the stirrup buckle you mentioned, I also have their elastic belt in their signature black/blue but its available in solid black and other colors as well too.

    According to Stacy and Clinton (What Not to Wear) you can mix black and brown. They're both neutrals.

    I love my Tailored Sportsman belt. It comes in black with a variety of interesting leather choices and has proven to be very durable. (And of course, it fits perfectly in the belt loops of my breeches!)

    I agree that if you're wearing a shadbelly then a black belt is the way to go. With something like a regular navy show coat, brown would be okay.

    Why not try something different? Deux Chevaux offers several different buckle designs, the leathers are reversible and interchangeable, and there are a number of finish and color options to accommodate individual tastes. They are all the rage here in Wellington. You can get one at Hunt Ltd. by the International Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, or from www.deuxchevauxproducts.com.

    For riders of every discipline and those who simply appreciate the best that a life with horses can offer.

    You guys are awesome! I love the http://www.deuxchevauxproducts.com/ website... what a find. I think I may just get the buckle and email the rep for a black belt since BAC says they have them. Then, having an option, I can look at sassier things at the horseshow. The Hadfield ones are beautiful, but I want to see all of the colors in person.

    If Stacey and Clinton ever got a hold of me they would be delighted, I'm sure. I'm a matchy matchy girl.

    And don't forget Chuck Pinnell, his belts are magnificent. http://www.pinnellcustomleather.com/

    You can buy buckle and belt separately if you want. Pricey but gorgeous.

    The Pinnell's are fabulous if you can afford them! Brighton has an awesome selection of belts that are reasonably priced.

    I love both my Ariat reversible horseshoe belt and my Tailored Sportsman Quilted "C" Belt.

    Really? I think they are so ordinary. The horse heads are pretty enough but I've seen plenty of similar types, including a Gucci that was much nicer. And the Ride/Jump/Pony is just a copy of those old Love buckles, nothing special about those either IMO.

    For the true hunter princess, Hermes or LV are always a nice choice
