Some say that wider belts are only for tall women with long torsos while slimmer belts are for petite women with shorter waist. To make your outfit looks polished and your style more trendy, keep on reading for our 5 trendy ways to wear belts.
- Pick a statement belt to spice up your simple outfit.
Accessories can make or break your look, and belt can give a bold statement whether you’re just wearing a casual outfit or even a dressy one. Chain belts, gold belts, and metal belt give a bold statement, but layering your simple belts in creative strands on your waist will also showcase your creativity and artistic skills. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may think of gold chain belts to layer on your elegant outfit to make it look more glamorous and luxurious. Just play with the lengths of your belt when layering so you’ll avoid bulk and keep its well-proportioned look.
- Creatively knot your belt to make your outfit look trendy.
If you’re looking to learn about how to wear belts in a trendier style, knotting your simple belts is the key. Just remember that you have to opt for several sizes larger than you actually need, so there’s room for the actual tying. Leather belts in slimmer styles are easier to knot compared to wider ones. Just complement the color of your outfit like wearing a black leather belt with a red dress, a brown leather belt with green dress, or even a metallic silver belt with white outfit that looks more complementing and coordinating.
- Opt for a slim belt for adding some polish to your outfit.
Belt sometimes makes a statement, but they can also add some elegant touches without overshadowing your outfit. To make your monochrome or all-white outfit elegant and polished, you may think of wearing a matching color of a belt with your clutch bag like Kristina Bazan did. Adding a great waist definition on your shift dress with a waist-cinching belt is a stylish idea too. If you feel your top piece and bottom piece creates a high contrast, you may wear a low-contrast belt to create the perfect shifting of colors like Mary Orton did with her olive top and white skirt.

Quirky belts like oversized style and bow-tie style look playful and creative. Though you may need some courage to pull it off, just make sure it will create an intentional look for a fashionable style. Generally, you can get away with wearing really cool belts with a lot of detailing, or go with something simple but wide. Also, who says you have to wear a proper belt anyway? Scarves are comfortable, colorful, and you can arrange them around your waist in any number of inventive ways. The look is absolutely statement-making and quite unique as well as it’s not something you would usually think about doing.
