Style and Fit Tips

Once you find a few belts that fit well and feel great, you are ready to pair them with the clothing in your closet. The following tips are sure to have you looking stylish in your new belt.

  1. Dress Belts Do Not Go With Jeans: Many men wear black dress belts with blue jeans, but this is a fashion mistake. The belt you wear with informal pants (such as jeans or loose khaki pants) should also be informal and low-gloss. Look for hardware in brushed nickel or a muted brass instead of a high polished gold.
  2. Shorts Require Very Informal Belts: Many men's shorts are actually sold in the store with this accessory attached in the form of an elastic belt. If not, pick up a simple cotton belt (the kind with an O-ring buckle) for the most laid-back style.
  3. Dress Belts Should Match Dress Shoes: The fashion-conscious man should always make sure that the color of his belt matches the color of dress shoes he plans on wearing. If you have both black and brown dress shoes, then pick up a dress belt of each color. Make sure the color matches as close as possible.
  4. Wear What Fits: No matter what your size may be, nothing is worse than a belt in a size that's too small. A tight belt is unflattering and uncomfortable. Always buy your proper waist size and allow for an inch or more room to accommodate a tucked in shirt. It is better to get a belt in a larger size than one that is too small.

If you are uncertain of your waist size, stop into a men's store and ask them to measure you. That way, if you plan on ordering a belt online, you will know your exact size and get the best fit possible.

Stock Up on Belts

When you find a new belt that you love, pick up a few extras in different colors so that you'll always have to perfect belt to match your outfits. Stocking up with a variety of colors and styles will give you great options no matter what you're wearing, and will also limit the need for last-minute shopping trips.
