Choose belt from dressing style
1.If it is a gentleman's style, "detailed and simple" is the direction of choosing a belt for a gentleman's style. For a gentleman or a business match, it will be a gentler visual performance. Therefore, in our understanding of matching skills, the choice of belts should be based on "detailed and simple" as much as possible and avoid matching accessories with too strong personality.
How to distinguish a gentleman's belt?
Formal belts or gentleman style-oriented belts will have a very simple appearance. Simple style belts with strong personal styles are usually avoided. They are most suitable for formal wear and gentleman style.
2.If it is a rough style, "rough and thick" is the direction of choosing a belt. Solidity, stiffness, and old-fashioned treatment are the selection principles of the rough style. The rough style avoids too detailed and delicate accessories, which are easy to appear abrupt. When we are in the category of casual collocation, if we want to make our styling look more masculine and rugged, or even full of masculinity, we usually choose jeans, denim materials, military jackets, leather jackets, khaki pants, etc. that feel solid or even slightly weight and full of stiff style item.
When choosing a belt, the shiny buckle of the belt details is more suitable for gentlemen or formal matching. Buckles full of mottled feeling are more suitable for rough frock and tannin styles. For a gentleman's belt, the shiny buckle will be an important indicator, and the belt will be more refined and simpler. However, if it is a matching style that emphasizes masculine and rough temperament such as frock, military uniform, and tannins, the belt buckle full of weight and the mottled strap will be more suitable, and it is not even limited to the cowhide material.
