Emily in Paris fans are obsessed with this accessory

We may have to wait a whole year to see whether (spoiler alert) Emily finally ends up with Gabriel or leaves Paris for London, but the epic looks she gave us in season 2 will keep us cosy until then.

There are too many to pick from, but we can at least zero in on everyone's favourite accessory of the season: Emily's Valentino belt.

I say favourite, because Lyst's Index for the fourth quarter of 2021 shows that sales of the belt skyrocketed after consumers watched the show in December.

In fact, it was the seventh hottest product for that time period, with Gucci’s 1953 Horsebit loafers (as seen on House of Gucci) and the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 watch (as seen in No Time To Die) also topping the list.

The definition of versatile, Valentino Garavani's belt can be worn on either the black or red side. It's been made in Italy from smooth, structured leather and has a slim profile. The signature 'VLOGO' hardware is slightly burnished to temper the gleam.

This gorgeous belt is made from leather and is reversible so you can wear it on the black or the red side, with the gold logo at the front.

Emily wears the Valentino belt on the show, teamed with a black vest, red mini skirt and white sleeveless blazer. While she wears the belt on the red side, it is actually reversible, so you could wear its black side if you're after something a little more subtle.

Its versatility and attractive price point - the thinner version costs £260 - has made this an instant hit amongst the fashion set. Plus the gold logo makes it stand out instantly as a luxury item that will elevate any look.

It was sold out for a while, but it's now back in stock on the likes of Selfridges and Net-A-Porter, so if you too want to emulate Emily's style, now's the time.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
