If you’re like us, you probably wear a belt with most, if not all, of your outfits, and understandably so. You want to keep your pants or shorts up, not to mention add a stylish detail to your outfit. The problem is that a lot of guys don’t wear their belt properly. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out our list of mistakes men make when wearing a belt below to learn how you can avoid them.
Wearing the Wrong Belt for the Wrong Outfit
In general, there are two types of belts: formal and casual, and some guys mix those up. Obviously, if you’re wearing a suit, you probably shouldn’t be wearing a canvas belt. Instead, you should wear a leather belt. Alternatively, if you’re going for a relaxed summer vibe, a canvas belt would be perfect, but don’t worry, you can wear a canvas or leather belt year-round. The key is taking the formality of your outfit into consideration. Of course, style is subjective, so as long as you’re true to yourself, that’s all that matters.
Not Matching Your Leathers
One rule that isn’t negotiable is the leather rule, but don’t worry—it’s a really simple rule. Are you ready? Are you sure? If you’re wearing brown leather shoes, you should wear a leather belt that’s the same shade of brown, or at least a hue that’s very similar. Alternatively, if you’re wearing black leather shoes, your belt should also be black leather. If you want to take your style to the next level, you can match allthe leathers in your outfit. Let’s look at an example. If you’re wearing brown leather shoes, you could take your outfit to new levels by pairing them with a matching leather messenger bag and a watch with a matching leather strap.
Not Wearing a Ratchet Belt
The days of punching additional belt holes are over. A true gentleman will ensure that their belt always fits perfectly, and the best way to do so is with a ratchet belt. Our men’s ratchet belts guarantee a clean and sleek look. You can also count on versatility because the buckles are interchangeable regardless of the strap. The best part of ratchet belts is that you’ll get the perfect fit every single time.
