Simon Tavassolia and his team launched the BB Simon brand in 1987 to collaborate with Swarovski fashion accessories. It was a huge success as fashion enthusiasts were enthralled by the concept of wearing belts accessorized with Swarovski crystals and gemstones.

This brand has grown to reflect American luxury from the iconic Swarovski belts to Swarovski pets, mirrors, shoes, bags, jewelry, etc.. Furthermore, BB Simon himself is involved in the entire creative process, from initial sketches to finished works. The brand continues to invest in the finest precious metals, gemstones, unconventional materials, and first-rate artisans to create fashion and home accessories of high quality and beauty.

Seeing its repute, hip-hop stars of the 2000s such as the American hip-hop collective, The Diplomats (Dipset), hopped on the accessory. They infused it into the lyrics of their songs, and that was how BB belts became a major part of Y2K fashion.

The unique Swarovski gemstones and precious metals used in producing these iconic belts make them a fashion statement and a work of art. But you may miss out on their potential to elevate your fit if you don’t style them correctly. Use these tips to stay on track:

Baggy Pants and Top

Loose pants like cargo pants, baggy jeans, etc., can sometimes have a wide waist. But you can keep them fitted with a luxury BB belt. Don’t forget to tuck in the front of your top so you flaunt the crystals to the world.

Mini Skirts

Flaunting your legs with a miniskirt will almost never go out of style. It helps you create that preppy look, especially when paired with crop tops or turtlenecks while your belt shines. For more effect, wear a pair of pantyhose underneath. It’ll give onlookers more deets to stare at.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
