Aesthetics

The first thing you might consider when buying belts is how they look. Are they wide? Are they slender? Is the one you’re eyeing on made of leather?

Wide belts look best on full-figured women while thin belts work well to balance out a small or petite frame. Thin belts on large frames emphasize the body while large belts on petite frames eat the girl’s facade up.

When looking for a sturdy belt, look for ones made of genuine leather. You can also opt for patent leather or croc skin for an edgy look. Classic colors to look for are tan or camel, black, and brown. Red, blue, and purple are quirky, but they are not too striking that they can still pull a look together.

How To Wear ‘Em

Belts can be worn with a number of outfits. In fact, you can wear them with dresses to emphasize a waist. This you can do with both body-hugging and A-line skirts. When wearing belts over tops, make sure that your tops are long enough to cover your thighs so that they won’t look to small or too trying hard to pull off a trend.

Contrary to what they always say, your shoes do not always have to match the color of your belt. It looks fine and polished, but a little mix and match goes a long way. Try, for example, a navy belt with tan shoes, or a camel belt with red pumps. The trick is to find a unifying article among them, like, say studs or velvet.
