The Secret to Choosing Belts for Men Like a Pro
1. The Belt and Pants Should Match Formality
Narrow belts with dress pants, chinos, dark jeans, and trouser shorts; and wide belts with lighter denims, cargo pants, and cargo shorts.
2. The belt and shoes should be of the same colour
Black with black, brown with brown, blue with blue, and so on. The only exception here is when your shoes are white or brightly coloured. On those instances, a black belt is usually your best bet.
3. The Belt Material Should Match the Shoe Material
Leather with leather, suede with suede, and canvas with canvas.
