It’s easy to overlook belts, but they’re more than useful branded accessories for women. A good belt may add interest to your outfit and perhaps make a fashion statement on its own. Choosing the proper belt begins with determining your belt size. Then, based on your personal style choices and budget, choose the best belt for your demands. For a better understanding, look over the details listed below. 

Opt for a Cloth or Vinyl Belt for a More Casual and Brighter Vibe

While leather is the ideal option for formal wear and long-lasting, non-flashy utility, it’s also OK to mix it up with your Gucci belts! Belts made of canvas, mesh, and similar textiles won’t go with a suit, but they come in various colors and can be highly durable depending on the quality.

If you enjoy the aesthetic of canvas but prefer the durability of leather, search for a fabric belt with a leather backing—you’ll have the best of both worlds! Colorful vinyl Gucci belts for Women and Men may add exciting flashes of design to your casual clothing, whereas a brown or black vinyl belt will merely appear like an extremely poor leather fake.

Buy a Broader Belt for a Casual Look and a Thinner One for a Formal Look

The “belt cops” won’t come after you if you break this guideline, although formal belts are typically thinner than casual belts. Dressier pants typically have smaller belt loops than casual pants, so choosing a thinner formal belt is also helpful.  

  • Formal belt sizes for men are typically 1–1.5 inches (2.5–3.8 cm) wide.
  • Casual belts for men are usually 1.5–1.75 inches (3.8–4.4 cm) wide.

Because women’s belts are often thinner than men’s belts, remove 0.25 in (0.64 cm) from the above values.

Pick the Belt’s Color According to the Shoes

When picking a formal belt, this is a more significant factor than when choosing a casual belt. However, matching the color of your sneakers and belt to your preferred pair of jeans might be a good stylistic accent.

When it comes to formal belts, many fashion experts advise that you match your leathers. That is, a black leather belt should be worn with Gucci hats, preferably black or brown, with black leather shoes, a brown leather belt should be worn with dark brown leather shoes, and a light brown leather belt should be worn with light brown leather shoes. If you choose to wear a leather replacement, the same logic applies.

If you’re adding a leather (or similar) jacket, purse, or another item to your outfit, be sure the color coordinates with your belt and shoes. 

Match the Metals on the Belt with Formal Wear

When it comes to dressing up, this is more important than matching your leathers. Match your watch, cufflinks, shoe buckles, pins, metal buttons, jewelry, and/or other metal objects to the color of your belt buckle (or any other metal material on the belt).

Match larger, more visible metal pieces, such as your belt buckle and shoe buckles, or your belt buckle and hoop Dior earrings. If you always wear the same piece of jewelry, such as a wedding band, you don’t have to worry about mix-matching it with a gold-colored belt buckle.

Select a Belt buckle that you Find Stylish and Easy to Use 

To attach the belt, most leather belts have a metal buckle with a “tongue” that slips through one of the size holes in the belt strap. For a multi-functional belt, this buckle style is a solid bet, but there are other options to consider. Consider the following scenario:

  • A sliding latch buckle or a simple buckle that snaps together is standard on canvas belts. It’s possible that it’s constructed of metal or plastic.
  • A braided buckle is found on some leather or vegan leather belts, which are held by size notches on the underside of the belt strap.
  • Decorative buckles, such as the ones that come to mind when you think of cowboys, may make a significant statement—especially if you go big!

Invest in Expensive Belts, or Buy 100 Cheap Ones

It all narrows down to personal choice in this case. For around the same money, you can have two or three well-made belts that will last for years or ten less expensive belts in a variety of colors and styles that may only last a year.

If you merely want a black and a brown belt that looks beautiful, works well, and goes with almost any outfit, investing in high-end choices is probably the best option.

If you want a lot of mix-and-match belt possibilities every day but don’t want to break the bank, choosing less expensive belts is probably the way to go. Just be prepared to go belt shopping more frequently!

Test the Quality of Each Belt you’re Considering Buying

Even if you buy a cheap belt, you don’t want it to fall apart on you immediately! Examine the buckling mechanism for scratches or tears, tighten the stitching, and ensure the buckling mechanism operates smoothly. The higher the price of the belt, the more careful you should be regarding the craftsmanship.

If you’re buying a leather belt, make a minor scrape on the reverse of the leather with your fingernail. If the leather is still smooth and supple, you’ll see a thin line. If you can’t make a mark, the leather has hardened and dried out, and it will shatter sooner rather than later.

A leather belt should also be flexed and twisted multiple times. The leather should be soft and flexible, and it should not fracture.
