The 4 Belts Every Guy Should Have In His Closet

Belts are not just for holding up your pants. A belt can also be used to make a style statement. Today, we’ve put together a list of the 4 belts every guy should have in his closet. This guide will help you choose the right type of belt to pair with your outfit.

Belts come in all kinds of colors, shapes, and types which makes choosing the appropriate one to pair with your outfit a daunting task some times. For this reason I’ve put together a list of 4 (Four) essential belts every guy should have in his closet.
1.  The Black Dress Belt

This is the most formal belt you can wear, most suitable for your corporate looks such as your suits and other business looks, but you should avoid wearing them when dressed in Tuxedo. I’ll always go for the slim and simple silver square framed buckle with single prong. The ideal width size you should go for should be 1 ¼ inches or 3.4cm.
2. The Brown Dress Belt

Every classy gentleman MUST have at least a brown shoe in his closet. And since a gentleman also doesn’t break style rules, he understands the importance of matching his brown dress shoes with a brown dress belt. Again, for the brown dress belt you should go for something slim, simple and classic.
3. The Casual Belt For Jeans

For casual wears you should choose slightly wider but thick belts – 1 ½ inches or 3.9cm in width and which is cut from a thick, rugged and genuine leather. You can get them in black or brown, but brown is generally considered more casual.

Have you ever seen a guy wearing a slim dress belt with khaki shorts and jeans before? It looks ridiculous right?… i guess… Before reading this, you just couldn’t explain why it doesn’t look so great when paired together. Ah ha! Now you know. You are welcome!
4. The Summer Fabric Belt

Have you wondered what type of belt is appropriate when going to the beach or pool party? Probably not…and that’s because you would rather wear the same brown or black dress belt you wear to work, than give it a thought.

Anyways, summertime represents freshness and during this season, the weather is warm, the scents are refreshing, the dress codes lighten up – your belt should also be light. You should go for either the Canvas type or braided belt type.

This belt can also be paired with the right T-shirt and Chinos combination for a fresh classic weekend look.


Wondering how you can get away with less than 4 belts? Okay, I’ll help you out…

1.  If you only own black dress shoes: If you are aware of the rules of wearing belts then the reason for this is quite obvious – because then you don’t need a brown dress belt.
2.  If you have to always dress-up in corporate attires even on weekends: Then you don’t need a casual belt or a summer fabric belt.
