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.
As we mentioned in yesterday’s post, bold color will be everywhere this spring. If you prefer to keep things understated, a belt is a great way to introduce a subtle burst of color without going overboard.
Spring belts, especially those with a braided / woven texture, can work with any kind of footwear, but we prefer pairing them with soft-constructed shoes like driving moccasins and loafers. Colorful, casual, and versatile, the spring belt hits on all bases for the new season. We highly recommend.
A belt ties everything together, whether individual outfits or a whole trunk full of seasonal favorites like chinos, gingham shirts, and soft-constructed shoes. Just tell your stylist you’d like a Spring Trunk, belt included.
