Take The Beltway To Fashion

08.09.13

 

Ever wonder what color belt to wear with your outfit?

The standard black and brown are still okay, but the wave of color usage in 2010s fashion allows you to be a bit more playful.

White belts contrast blue, brown, and orange.

Your belt color can also match your other accessories – flowers, shoes, pocket squares, etc.

Now, don’t get too excited.  Even though there is some license to play with belt color in casual business settings, I wouldn’t wear a pink belt that accents the pink pocket square and tie you’re wearing to a formal business meeting.

The old tradition of matching your belt to shoes still applies when sticking to conservative dressing mores.
