80s Belts first surfaced on Chictopia's streetstyle gallery in Spring 2008 seen on Chicago blogger thefashbot. She wore her brown vintage belt with a beige Old Navy t-shirt, blue Urban Outfitters skirt, and red Urban Outfitters shoes. Since then, 80s Belts have grown in popularity as bloggers from Los Angeles, Manila, and Jakarta have discovered them. Popular brands of 80s Belts are Zara, Forever 21, H&M, thrifted, and vintage.
There are currently 875 streetstyle photos of bloggers wearing 80s Belts. Most recently, blogger CouleurSpleen styled her black second hand suspenders belt with a black Quirky ME sheer sweater, black thrifted suede shorts, and charcoal gray 80s Purple round sunglasses.
