Is the Chanel chain belt worth the investment – My honest review

Chanel chain belts are a classic designer statement piece but are they worth it? I have been doing lots of designer product reviews this year since they’re a big investment to make and I take ages to decide myself before taking the plunge. I wanted to share my honest opinion with you on specific items. The pros, any cons and whether it was worth the investment or not. I tend to go for more classic designer purchases that will last, rather than on trend pieces that will date quickly. Mainly because of the cost. I have both the gold Chanel chain belt and leather belt and I don’t regret either purchase and here’s why.


What to wear with Chanel chain belt

One of the reasons I love my Chanel chain belt and would buy it again is because it gets so much wear. It can be styled with dresses, pants, skirts, rompers, jumpsuits, leggings, pretty much anything! You also don’t have to worry about sizing or adding extra belt holes as it’s so adjustable. Which means not only can you loosen it after eating but it fits every waistline on your clothing from high waisted to being worn low on your hips. It’s an easy way to add a more dressy look to your outfit.

Does it scratch easily?

My Chanel gold chain belt has some scratches on but it’s over 8 years old. I think it scratches less than leather and no more than any other metal accessory. I’ve never even polished mine.

Is the Chanel chain belt heavy?

Yes. I mean, it doesn’t weigh a ton but it’s solid metal. It’s not so heavy that it’s uncomfortable but you’d definitely know if it fell off. Which is a good thing considering the cost.

Is there anyone it’s not right for?

If you don’t wear gold or belts then a Chanel gold chain belt’s probably not for you.

How to keep it clean

I’ve never cleaned mine but you can polish it the same way you would any other gold jewelry.

Do Chanel belts ever go on sale?

No. Chanel never has sales. However, you can pick them up from consignment stores like The Real Real or Fashionphile in giftable condition for less than you’d pay for them in stores.

Is the Chanel chain belt worth the cost? Would I buy it again?

For me it both my Chanel gold chain belt and leather belt have been worth buying as I wear them a lot. The chain belt is also a belt you only need to buy once as it’ll last a lifetime as long as you don’t lose it. As metal wears better than leather. However, if mine did go missing or break then yes, I’d definitely replace it.

Is it still a good investment/on trend in 2021/22?

Yes. A Chanel chain belt is a classic. There’s years when it’s more on trend and I wear it more than other years but it always comes back into fashion.

Where to buy Chanel belts

The obvious place is in a Chanel boutique. However, if you don’t live close to one, you can shop for them online but 2nd hand. When I say that, I don’t mean busted up old ones. A lot of them are in unused, giftable condition with all of their original packaging. You can filter by the condition of the Chanel belt and price range you want to pay.
