Belts, when chosen properly, are an amazingly stylish and finishing touch to a great outfit. A cool and coordinated belt can add subtle detail to your look. You can showcase your individual taste, personality, preference, and flair; howver, making sure you chose an appropriate, stylish, and coordinating belt is essential. Aaron Marino of alpha m. presents how to pick the best belt for your outfit with these six belt wearing tips.

Belt Wearing Tips

  1. Know the difference between casual and dress belts - dress belt is length of thumb to the 1st knuckle (1 inch and 1/2). If it's wider than that, it's casual. Make sure the shoes coordinate to the belt in terms of dress level.
  2. Buckle - go simple, subtle, and understated unless you're a 'cowboy' or 'rock star'.
  3. Stick to the three main colors - black, brown, and tan. Bright and bold work in certain situations. Fabric belts can be more playful because of the casual nature, however.
  4. Match belt color to shoes - Alpha discusses how to match antiquing and distressing shades of shoes to the belt.
  5. Buy one size larger than your waist size - Alpha gives examples. Belts have 5 holes, go for the center 3. If you are on the ends, go up or down accordingly.
  6. Wear leather - there is no other option. Synthetic belts suck! When you think of leather, do you think of cow? 90% of leather belts in the stores are made from tanned cow-hide. However, 'leather' means any tanned and processed animal skin. Alpha covers other types of leather: crocodile, eel, ostrich, shark, and hippo. Alpha was recently introduced to a company, Alexander Dallas, who makes exotic leather belts. He was blown away by their cool belts. He loves the patterns and textures which add subtle detail and dimension that cow belts cannot. The price tag is around $160, but they are hand-crafted with unique leather.
