Belt is actually the anchor or co-coordinator of a man’s whole wardrobe. It offers a lot of possibilities for mixing and matching with belts being available in all arrays of colors, brands and styles. Regrettably, most men do not pay much attention to belts that they end up wearing them inappropriately. Belts are either formal or casual and the only way to determine whether the belt you’re considering to buy is casual or formal is by the rule of thumb, literally.
A belt as broad as your thumb is a formal belt something broader or wider will fall under the casual category. Another distinction between casual and formal belt is in the material and finish. A formal belt usually comes in a deep glossy finish whereas casual belts are more often done in a subdued flat finish. When it comes to buckles, the rule is, the larger the buckle the more casual the belt.
The only colors of belts that matter are black, brown and tan. Anything else is a passing trend and fad and are only for teenagers and superheroes. If possible you should have formal and casual belts in all three colors, but you can perfectly manage with a black formal belt and casual belts in tan and brown.
Formal belts should always match the color and texture of your shoes. If you’re wearing shiny black shoes then your formal belt should also be black and glossy. Casual belts are more versatile, however, a casual belt with a matte finish whether brown, tan or black could be paired off with sneakers and jeans. When it comes to boots, since they are made from leather, the rule on formal belt should be followed, however casual the boots are. The belt should match the boots finish and color.
Store your belt properly so that it can last you a long time. The proper way to store belt is to hang it perpendicularly and away from the sunlight. Don’t leave it in your pants since being curved in the loop will damage the belt’s seam and damage the form of the leather.
Now, when you know how to wear your belt it is time to buy a new belt and make your style even better. We hope you found this information useful and it will help you on your way to a fantastic look.
