The humble buckle. Where would we be without them? Our trousers might fall down, but there’s more to it than just being a belt fastener – although they are great at that.
We love a buckle – on a bangle, a bag, a belt (of course), boots, or a bracelet. There’s a bit of a ‘b’ theme here, isn’t there!? Trust us, it was a complete coincidence!
We bet you’ve never looked at the detail in your clothes and accessories this much before. But there are some things that we just take for granted. Did you know that the earliest buckles were used by Roman soldiers to keep their body armour together?
Here are a few of our favourite buckled up things!
