The fashion crowd is no stranger to a great affordable find—and even better if it’s an item that’s available on Amazon. Just take one look at the recent rise of $7 Hanes tank tops on everyone’s Instagram feeds these days to see what we mean. Well, there’s another Amazon item bubbling up right now and it’s so subtle you might have missed it at first glance. Fashion girls have quietly been styling rope-style cord belts in their outfits, and the quirky accessory is actually available for purchase in bulk on none other than Amazon for as little as $8.
It’s an unexpected trend, to be sure, but we’re way into how we’re seeing it styled with everything from jeans and a tee à la our market editor Nicole or how our editor in chief Kat wore hers to fashion week peeking out of a suit. We’ve even seen some people getting extra thrifty by using a white shoelace to cinch up a pair of trousers.
Curious to see what we mean? Keep reading to see the chicest iterations of the trend and then shop cords from Amazon to get the look.
