With metal studs on them? Can't remember when I used to wear one, but I know I had one. Saw a girl with one on today, was a blast from the past!

Yes I had a white one. It was fucking horrible.

Worn with a gypsy skirt like Sienna Miller!

I used to wear an orange one with a gypsy skirt blush

Oh yes, worn low on the hips over bootcut jeans or cheesecloth maxi skirts, lovely

Deirdre Barlow still wears them

I had one, with a gypsy skirt

In fact, it is probably still in my wardrobe, I might donate it to Granada Studios smile

Oh come on.

They looked good with gypsy skirts. At the time.

They did!

At the time.

It was handy for hiding the fact I was pregnant in the first few months! Mine was khaki, it long ago went to the charity shop

my frizzy perm and shoulder pads looked good

in the 80's

at the time smile

I look better now, seriously

oh yes the deirdre belt! i had a couple of them about 8-10 years ago. one had big long leather tassles that always got caught in things.

Still worn, I think you'll find, by the type of woman who still worships at the altar of Nicky Hambleton Jones.

Usually seen wearing a brown velour fitted jacket, over a dusky pink polo neck. A burgundy cord calf length skirt (fitted over hips and thighs, flaring out at the knee). Matching tights, and burgundy pull-on suede boots with a mid- heel. And of course, the leather disc belt.

I did like the fashion for a low slung belt though, it suited my arse.
