Here are 3 things you should keep in mind when picking out this wardrobe fundamental.
Tip No. 1: Know When to wear a belt.
The general rule of thumb is to wear a belt whenever your pants have belt loops. Not doing so can make your outfit look incomplete. Especially if you are going for something more on the formal side, a belt is a must. Regardless of whether you are thinking of wearing a belt or not, always make sure that your pants are well-tailored to avoid any bunching.
Tip No. 2: Bigger is NOT Always Better
We all know the saying, “the bigger the better”. That doesn’t necessarily apply in every situation. When we talk about size, take particular care of the width and length of your belt. You won’t want something bulky or a belt that is too short. An easy way to determine the right length is to simply add 2 inches to your pants waist size.
Tip No. 3: Statement OR Accent Piece
