What’s in a belt? Everything! Jewels. Plastic. Leather. Beads. Metal. With all of this stuff, you’d think people would know how to wear them. Alas, they don’t. Here are a few common scenarios:
Scenario #1: Shelia prides herself on being able to wear the same clothes she did in high school. As a result, on occasion, she wears a tie dye belt around a dress that used to go with another outfit she wore in 1965.
Scenario #2: Bill is a cowboy who works in corporate America. Of course, while in the office, he complies with wearing a suit and tie. But his belt is always a BIG one – with an ornate buckle.
Scenario #3: Cindy has always had a thick waist. In order to create a smaller one, she wears a skinny belt. It makes her look like a sausage with a string tied around it.
Sadly, we all know a Shelia, Bill or Cindy. They are our friends, relatives and coworkers. They are smart in every way except fashion. So here are a few tips they can use in regards to wearing belts:
Belts should fit . . .
A. The times. Unless the 60’s are back in style, don’t wear a belt from that era. Stick with the current trends.
C. The body. Your belt size should fit your body size. Skinny belts look best on skinny people.
Give these belt tips to the Shelias, Bills and Cindys of the world. And use them yourself. They will help anyone select a belt that looks good on them.
