Price of Louis Vuitton Belts for Women

Here’s a question that luxury lovers and collectors ask a lot: how much is a Louis Vuitton belt?

On average, a belt from the renowned French company will cost you $600-$700 at the store. While the majority of available items are within this price range, there are also cheaper and more expensive options.

The most expensive belt would be either an exotic one or a belt that is comprises removable pouches and key holders on it, such as Daily Multi Pocket belt, which retails for $1,430.

Is there a way to get a Louis Vuitton belt cheaper? Well, as French brand never does sales, there’s only one way to save on this purchase: buy a used Louis Vuitton belt on secondhand marketplaces, such as Ebay or Poshmark. Generally, a preloved belt with coveted monogram will allow to save about 50% off its retail.

Why are Louis Vuitton Belts So Expensive?

Overall, a Louis Vuitton belt is $600-$700 while in any fast fashion store you can get one for $100-$200. That makes a luxury belt three times as expensive as in most stores. So why is it more expensive?

First, Louis Vuitton positions themselves as a luxury brand and, thus, it doesn’t make sense for them to sell canvas and leather accessories for cheap. Otherwise, it will just lose its attractiveness and value for the buyers.

As a luxury brand, the French leather goods manufacturer offers intangible benefits. The way we dress changes the way we feel. Having a statement accessory, such as a luxury belt, can elevate our style and make us feel much better about ourselves. That’s what Louis Vuitton charges for.

Louis Vuitton Belt Size Chart

Louis Vuitton belt size is an indication of its length from the buckle to the third (center) hole in centimeters. To select the size that fits your measurements best, use the soft tape to measure the highest part of the hips. The actual size should be kind of in-between your waist and hips.

 What Size Louis Vuitton Belt Should I Get?

The size will largely depend on how you wear belts in general. Do you only wear them with jeans? Do you need a belt that goes well both with pants and dresses?

Do Louis Vuitton Belts have Serial Numbers?
