  • Description

    A classic wide belt that makes all of our cinching, silhouette-creating dreams come true, especially when paired with our outerwear. I like to think a 2019 Greta Garbo would pair a Clyde Trench in Flax Midweight Linen with this waist belt all spring long. It's substantial enough in width to really define the waist, but not so wide that it buckles when you sit down. And it's not just for jackets; this piece can take our most oversized, fluid tops and dresses and create transformative shapes. Subtle curves or dramatic changes in volume add endless options to your wardrobe.

    My favorite way to wear this is in monochromatic outfits with a matching jacket or dress, but contrast is also eye-catching. Use it to close open-front jackets or to create a simple hourglass shape with a Georgia Midi.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

The perfect ES accessory

This belt is the perfect addition to my ES wardrobe. It totally changes the look of my Georgia midi and adds a level of functionality previously missing from my Clyde Jacket.

Great belt

I really enjoy this belt. Stylish but simple. Occasionally I wish it was a bit longer but I still like the belt regardless.

Goes great with an Isadora

I got this to match with my ivory Isadora dress and it works great with it. The Greta's shape looks similar to the shoulder ties of the Isadora and almost looks like they're part of the same set! I love having the option to wear the dress in multiple ways now.

Doesn’t stay in place

The belt has been disappointing and frustrating to wear. I struggle to keep it lying flat; it tends to roll up/roll in on itself. Tying it tighter seems to make it worse, but tying it loose doesn’t define my waist enough. And it gets very wrinkly near the tied bit. I love this linen for tops and dresses, but don’t think it does well as a belt.

A nice touch

I bought the Greta belt in flax and black to mostly wear with my Josephine tunics when I want less volume. They are perfect. I'm thinking of other ways I can incorporate them in the rest of my wardrobe.

Flattering Belt

I bought this to go with the Georgia midi dress. It is beautifully made and the right width on a curvy body to be flattering. It has made stying the Georgia more versatile!

Perfect match for my Georgia midi

I love being able to cinch my Georgia midi at the waist and this belt is a very well-constructed way to do so. It does get twisted/wrinkled, which is the nature of the fabric but annoying, and has a tag sewn on one side so you have to be mindful when you tie it on. These things are a little annoying for someone who has a grab-and-go mentality about their wardrobe (me) but won’t bother everyone.

My advice: size up. I love having a longer tail to work with.

Nice way to change up outfits

Using this belt is a nice way to significantly change the way a dress, jumpsuit, or tunic looks. I got the black for my friend, and it is more subtle. The flax, which I got for myself, makes a bigger statement since it contrasts more with black and navy dresses etc. They really add a lot (especially when I want a cinched waist) and are an inexpensive way to create such different looks with what I already own.

Better than anticipated

I absolutely love my belt. It really ties together outfits and is clearly wonderfully made. There is definitely flexibility in the sizing depending how long you want it.
