How To Make Your Belt Work For You

Jun 28, 2008
Belts are an integral part of any person's wardrobe. Belts change our outfits in a number of ways, and provide a person with the great style they're looking for. They can give a person's figure more definition, and lift sagging and baggy clothes to create a better body shape.

Leather belts are, of course, one of the most fashionable and popular types of belts. They're most widely used by business professionals and others who need a professional but stylish look to make their outfit complete. Leather belts typically come in just a few colors, namely black and brown. Because most people who use leather belts use them for workplace attire, leather belts are typically subdued in color to create a solid business appearance.

Plastic belts are usually worn by people who want to put style above professional appearances. They can be purchased in a multitude of colors, which can be found in everything from black to pink. Because of these color choices, plastic belts are often able to be worn with more types of outfits than a traditional leather belt. Plastic belts are often seen with more than just pants; they're often seen along with skirts, dresses, and other outfits that normally wouldn't need a belt. In these cases, they're simply used for style and to make the look of an outfit complete.

Metal belts are another type of belt that's less common than the rest. Metal belts can be made of chain metal, steel mesh, or a variety of other types of metals to create a unique look. Metal belts, unlike leather or plastic belts, are typically seen being worn by people who belong to the rock music "counter-culture," often to create an anti-authority image for themselves.

Belts of course do more than just give our outfits style; they serve more practical purposes for most people. Belts cinch down loose-fitting pants or shorts. If your pants or shorts are too large at the hip or waist (whichever is your style), a good belt is an excellent idea to keep your pants from sagging down. For women, belts can create an excellent hourglass figure that may not have been shown without the use of a belt. This can be done by accenting the narrowest part of your waist, providing a much more slimming look.

Whatever your reasoning for wearing a belt, I hope that this article has provided you with some good ideas for how to wear your belt, as well as which style suits you best.
