Even as some fashion forward designers have started to “casualize” menswear by skipping the ever-present belt loops on trousers, men are still advised by style gurus to “buckle up” if their jeans, khakis or slacks still have these loops.
Whether at casual gatherings or in business-related events, men must aspire to look stylish and appropriately dressed in the right choice of clothes, as well as the right belt. In fact, different belts, according to homegrown leather expert McJim, also convey different images when worn. Take a look at the list below.
Basic dark brown belts mean serious business for people who move around the corporate world. The perfect accessory to match well-cut slacks or trousers and long-sleeved shirt, a dark brown belt adds class and style to a man’s look at client calls or business meetings.
Basic modernist black belts, meanwhile, give that sleek elegant look when out to lunch or dinner with family and friends, a romantic date, or at parties.
Reversible minimalist belts, finally are sleek and modern-looking belts that help project a low-key but elegant image, whatever the occasion.
