We are loving the looks for back to school outfits this fall! With so many choices, there is really no way you can go wrong – just embrace your own personal style and live it!
So, maybe there is one way you can make a misstep – that would be choosing accessories that can aggravate your nickel allergy symptoms. Going to class with a red, itchy rash is not our idea of fun. NoNickel makes it easy to avoid the rash!
Whether you’re in the market for belts or jewelry, try on the new styles from our store! Top of our list – the look for fall is DENIM and we have the belt. Fitting in perfectly with mismatched denims and incredibly popular denim shirts, our Bluerock Mountain Distressed Leather Belt is our #1 Back to School Favorite.
With those tucked tees and oversized shirts, try on the funky Pathfinder Brown Belt. This big buckle has an authentic casual look but zero nickel! Plaid pants need a belt with an attitude, so the Black Studded Belt is our pick. Just upgraded in leather, this belt has lots of metal and absolutely no nickel!
Little kids with nickel allergy? We have them covered, too. Take a look at our expanding inventory of Children's Belts! Whether required for school uniforms or just needed for casual play, we have a growing selection of nickel free belts for children.
For students who may be heading into an internship this fall, a great way to show your discriminating taste is with our carbon fiber belts. Surprising to a lot of people, carbon fiber is now used in the accessory market making lightweight, metal free belt buckles. Our belt craftsmen have paired these sleek buckles with handcrafted straps to offer sophisticated looks. Our newest addition to this line of belts is the CF 2.0 Black Belt with Silver Weave Buckle. For those who prefer a pin buckle, The Carbon Fiber Wide Pin Brown Belthas a great combination of rippled brown leather with the carbon buckle. With the 100% carbon fiber buckles hand sewn to the strap, these belts are completely metal free. If your new job has you going through security screenings, this belt will make your life so much easier.
Adding a splash of color to monochrome outfits is another popular trend for fall. Whether you’re looking for school colors like red (Rodanthe Earrings, Interstellar Earrings) or blue (Carolina Beach Earrings, Cosmic Earrings) or if you want multi-colored dazzle (Window Waterfalls – Kaleidoscope Earrings, Wintergreen Waterfalls Earrings), NoNickel has a lot of choices! Maybe consider some simple nickel free pearl posts, which are always a safe choice!
Back to school shopping is always fun as we are looking at the adventures that lie ahead! Just make sure your choices are nickel free and avoid the rash!
Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a middle hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.
There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.
The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).
An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
