Yesterday we introduced five of our favorite things about spring, including booze, bold colors, and free money. But our enthusiasm for the new season can’t be contained in just one post, so here’s a sixth item for the list.
If you had to pick one—and only one—belt for your wardrobe, we would suggest a brown leather belt, to match shoes of the same color. Luckily, you’ll never have to face such a cruel decision, as belts of all varieties abound.
Now that spring is finally here, a lot of guys at Trunk Club reserve leather belts for more formal occasions. The rest of the time, it’s all about casual alternatives.
Spring belts—such as the ribbon, woven, and braided varieties shown above—introduce seasonal color and nicely complement warm-weather staples like chinos and gingham shirts. (Bonus: They also keep your pants from falling down.)
For the following outfit, a leather belt probably wouldn’t be the best choice. A woven blue option, however, ties everything together perfectly.
