Gucci belt - matte or shiny?

So I know this isn’t to everyone’s taste but I have got a Gucci belt but I ordered two, one matte one shiny, and I am so stuck on which one to keep!! I have had such mixed opinions, the matte one looks more classy and would probably go with more but the shiny one definitely stands out more but I’m also worried if it would scratch more? But the shiny one was also only released last year.
I’m 29 if that makes any difference

Not my taste but the matt looks more expensive than the shiny one.

Another vote for matte

I'm not sure either could be described as 'classy' but the matte looks nicer, though in your photos they do look very similar to me.

Did you really pay £330 for a belt??

Shiny. To me the matte one looks a bit plasticy for some reason.

AlexisIsMySpiritAnimal Sat 14-Nov-20 16:40:06

Shiny is the one for me ❤️

shiny, matt looks cheap

For £330 neither. That model wearing it looks like they’ve had a hard paper round as well.

what will you wear them with?

SunshineOverStress Sat 14-Nov-20 17:11:11

Thank you for the replies so far!

No I didn’t spend £330 on a belt, my lovely boyfriend did grin

I would wear it with jeans, and wear it round my waist over dresses

It's an expensive belt. Therefore a statement.. so, I'd go for shiny.

Aoki Sat 14-Nov-20 17:13:28

@AlexisIsMySpiritAnimal
I’ll post wherever I like, thank you very much smile.

I was going to suggest if you’re going to spend £330 on a belt, could you find another designer? Those ones just don’t look worth that amount and the Gucci Buckle is hideous.

God some people who have commented on here are awful.
Op didn't ask if it was to our taste but if we preferred matte or shiny.
Those belts are very fashionable at the moment but obviously won't appeal to everyone.

PeanutButterFalcon Sat 14-Nov-20 17:37:59

Shiny

kittykat35 Sat 14-Nov-20 17:46:28

OP I have the Matt one and I love it!! Goes with everything!!enjoy!!

MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously Sat 14-Nov-20 17:50:51

Shiny. If you are going to wear it, then own it and go bold!

onIRNBRU Sat 14-Nov-20 17:51:52

Matte for me too.

WinterRose92 Sat 14-Nov-20 17:56:12

I prefer the matte one but both are lovely!

Readysteadife Sat 14-Nov-20 18:00:02

I like the matt

FeelinSpendy Sat 14-Nov-20 18:01:14

I feel like the matte one is more ‘casual’ and the shiny is more ‘dressy’. Matte would be better for daywear whereas the shiny is better for a meal out or something. So I think it depends whether you’re more likely to wear daytime or evening.
Also, depends on what other belts you have and wear - is there a gap in your wardrobe that this will fill?
