15 Super Stylish Belts To Bring Your Look Together And Make It Pop
Stylish belts are the only thing separating us from the animals. Okay, okay, that might be taking it too far, but I don’t think I am when I say this: a stylish belt is the most underrated weapon in any bro’s style arsenal.
You have to make sure that you have the right belt for the right occasion. You have to get one that actually, you know, works. And of course you want to make sure that you buy a belt that isn’t going to fall apart after the third time you wear it. And even if you get all that figured out, you have to make sure that you’re not just buying some overpriced knock-off that’s going to stain your pants or embarrass you when your pals notice that it says “Gutchi” instead of “Gucci.”
My point is that buying a stylish belt that works for you is harder – much harder – than you probably ever considered. But that’s why I’m here. I’ve got you. I will hold you up just as one of these 15 stylish belts will hold up your pants.
This dress belt with an automatic buckle is “cut to fit,” which means that you can take the belt, measure it so it’s the perfect length for you and then cut it. No more in-between lengths and settings or half-torn holes. And when you’re done you just pull the belt tight and the buckle will auto-lock for a perfect – and stylish – fit.
Ratchet belts also feature a hidden “zip-track,” which allows for adjustments without having to cut the belt yourself. This one has 32 different settings, which is a hell of a lot more than the standard 5 on most “holed” belts. Imported, it’s also made from genuine cow leather and the buckle is removable if you want to replace it with your own.
Price: $13.90 – $24.90
“Stylish” doesn’t have to mean “dressy.” And it doesn’t have to mean “expensive” either. No, “stylish” is whatever you need to make your whole deal pop. And this belt is perfect for anyone who needs to rock that faded, well-worn jeans look. It gives you that slightly rugged edge that marks you as a man and not some silly little boy.
We’ve already talked about ratchet dress belts and sometimes it just comes down to whatever you think looks best on you. This particular belt comes in a variety of colors and buckle styles, so just pick whichever one grabs you. It’s also one of the most heavily reviewed belts on Amazon, so that should make you feel more comfortable with buying one.
Price: $19.99 – $29.99
Okay, so a reversible belt might not sound stylish, but it is practical, and when it comes to making sure you look stylish, “practical” can be one of your best friends. Since it’s reversible – one side black, the other brown – it will be the most versatile belt in your wardrobe. And since both sides are classic leather looks, that practical versatility is accented by understated elegance, which is an all-time stylish look.
Price: $16.77 – $20.77
It’s hard to find bona-fide designer belts and it’s even harder to find one if you happen to be a bigger guy. This belt from Allen-Edmonds takes care of both for you. Classic, elegant, this 100% suede belt gives you that designer quality and will actually, you know, fit you. Just because you’re a big dude doesn’t mean you can’t look like a pimp. A classy pimp.
Price: $90.00 – $98.00
Again, you know all about the ratchet dress belts and again, sometimes it just comes down to personal preference. That’s what style’s all about, after all – it’s a manifestation of yourself. This particular ratchet dress belt comes with a little bit gaudier buckle, and if that’s you, then this is your ratchet belt.
Allen-Edmonds is normally known for their fine dress shoes, but that’s what makes them the perfect belt-maker. That’s because they understand that your belt and your shoes need to complement each other perfectly. This belt is designed to be part of a whole style package, not just some isolated piece that you throw on haphazardly. Is it expensive? Yes. But that’s the point. You get what you pay for, and you know what? You look it too.
Price: $96.00 – $120.00
Another ratchet belt, this one is a little different because the buckle is much more understated and traditional looking than an automatic buckle. This gives the belt a certain elegance that sets it apart from other ratchet belts.
Price: $19.99 – $27.99
Thirty Five Kent is an Amazon brand, which means that you have Amazon itself backing it in terms of quality, which is comforting. This is a simple suede belt. I say simple because there aren’t a lot of bells and whistles, no gaudy buckle, etc. But ask yourself this? Can a suede belt ever truly be simple?
Price: $23.62 – $55.00
Designer quality combined with designer style. That’s really what this is all about. Some belts just speak for themselves.
Price: $39.95 – $64.99
Just look at this belt! Blue suede. Now that’s a style statement. Of course, you can get it in a couple of other colors, but really it’s all about the blue suede. This is the belt for anyone whose style chafes under classic blacks and browns.
Price: $17.00 – $19.99
This imported leather belt offers designer quality and elegance. There’s not much to say beyond that except for this: normally $139.99, it’s yours for $49.99.
Now we’re stepping out on that style ledge. It takes a certain type of bro to rock a belt made from the belly of a goddamn crocodile, but I know that you’re out there and this belt is for you. It’s also available in gray, but to hell with all that, if you’re the type of dude that can rock a crocodile skin belt, you can rock the blue. Go big or go home.
Here’s the deal: this is both the highest rated belt on Amazon and one of the heaviest reviewed. That’s a pretty unbeatable combination, no? And you can see why, as this is just a great looking leather belt, available in tons of different colors and buckles. This particular one with a gold vintage buckle is my favorite. But yours may be something else and that’s the beauty of both style and this belt: it’s highly personal and there’s one out there that is perfect just for you.
Price: $19.99 – $28.99
