5 Belts Every Man Should Own

Just Like every other fashion accessory you put on, belts reflect your personality and style. The wrong belt can pass the wrong message about your style, or even worse ruin your whole look.

As small as this accessory is compared to other vital items that make up our look, the belt still gives your style a total look while unifying your general look. And of course, the most important of all is its primary purpose which is to hold our pants up.

Belts for men can be categorized just as looks can be. They are either formal or informal (casual). Formal belts are mainly for pant trousers and casual or informal belts go with every other look from jeans, khakis, shorts to chinos and leather pants and their buckle is usually designed in different styles. While the formal belts are leather belts mainly for trousers sometimes chinos, they are slimmer and their buckles are mainly easy designs.
