Belts are the ugly child of the accessory world. Neglected, lacking love and attention. This year, the ugly child is taking centre stage. The belt is making a comeback.
Trends such as the ‘extra long length’ and ‘military buckles’ have thrust belts back into the spotlight forcing people to wear a belt in fun and creative ways.
It’s time to upgrade your styling chops, here are a few ways you can style your belt:
If you end up buying a belt too long, you are in luck. This seasons trend is about breaking through the habit of looping the end of your belt and just letting it hang freely.
Belts that are more malleable can be tied up in a knot, start by doing your normal belt route. Instead of putting the belt end through the loop tuck it under and over the belt and feed it through the hole that you have created.
After you put your belt through the first loop, tuck it behind and let the rest of the fabric hang down to create a simple fold.
For the safe and generic guy. Keep the end of the belt secure by feeding it through the belt loop.
THE BODY WRAP
Forget using the belt as a functional accessory and be creative with how you wear it. Wrap it around a coat, blazer or sweatshirt to create a defined silhouette.
