Yesterday we talked about using suspenders in replacement for belts but then it hit me that we haven’t actually spoken about belts. In this post we would take a look at five types of belts that you should have that can help you dress appropriately.
They are especially good for causal occasions and helps lighten up your dress code. You can get something like what we have in the picture above or anything in a lightweight fabric. They are good for parties.
Slim Vintage Belts
When buying vintage belts, make sure it is genuine leather and it fits you perfectly. There is no point buying vintage if it is not original.
Black Dress Belt
Basically it is a faux pas to where a belt with traditional attires or tuxedos but the black dress belt is the most formal belt you can ever have. When you need to dress up for formal occasions then it is your go to belt. A slim leather belt is my recommendation.
Brown Dress Belt
Just like the black dress belt, it should be worn slim and in original leather. Depending on if you are not the type that likes too much black in your outfit, you can opt for the brown dress belt.
Rugged Denim Belt
For a casual weekend involving jeans and/or other workwear-inspired pieces, look for a belt that is a little wider (1 1/2″ or so) and cut from a thick, rugged bridle leather that is ready to take a beating.
