Last year, when I was at my college reunion, the wife of a classmate told me about a new line of belts – Hipsi belts - that is based out of her hometown (Seattle). I decided to order one, and since then I have rarely worn any other belt. I now own several Hipsi belts in different colors, as well as several different designs of buckles.
This is my new favorite accessory, and without question the best belt I have ever owned! This is not a paid promotion – I just like the belt, personally own several, and thought I would spread the word.
What do I like about my Hipsi belts? They are totally flexible in so many different ways. They are completely flat – no bulky buckle, which means that they do not create those annoying holes in t-shirts that so many regular belts make. Plus, they shield shirts from the zipper and the flap of pants and jeans, which also protects the shirt from getting holes and creates a flat and smooth profile. They are fully adjustable, so they can be worn with every type of jeans or pants however low or high they may be. Hipsi belts are cute enough to be worn so that they can be seen, and have many great buckles that can be swapped in and out of the belt strap. But, they are also sleek and flat enough to be completely hidden when your shirt is over your jeans or pants.
There are three basic belt strap colors – black, brown, and champagne. I started with the basic black belt and buckle set, then soon after purchased the brown belt and buckle set (seen here, holiday set here, and the equestrian belt sets seen here).
There is a new holiday gift set that is being offered this year – a basic belt set (brown, black, or bubbly (champagne) that comes with two interchangeable buckles. The “brown eyed girl” belt set and tigerlily buckle is pictured above.
The latch mechanism is different than regular belts , and takes a few times latching the belt to get the swing of it (there are detailed instructions included with the belt, and on the website), but once you get the hang of it you are set!
