Braided Men’s Belts Aren’t Just For Seniors
March 17, 2011 8 Comments
A tribute to the 1990s or to the senior citizens of Florida – the braided leather belt is making a huge comeback for men this coming season. Many of the fashion houses, particularly the Italian ones, accessorized their Spring/Summer 2011 Collections with braided and rope styled belts. Also known as woven or plaited belts, they are generally worn slimmer and longer than traditional belts. Few of these belts have any set holes punched in, so you can stick the prong in anywhere for a perfect fit.
For an added touch of personal style, wear your braided leather or rope belt a size or two longer. Knot off the rope belt and let it hang as is (see photo above). With the braided belt, try threading the end of the belt up and around itself as seen in this Michael Kors SS11 photo. Dominant colours for SS11 are shades of black, brown, khaki, and white. Have fun dressing them up with seasonal linen or light cotton suits together with a pair of loafers as styled by Etro or Gucci. For a more casual look, try them with a pair of jeans or shorts and leather sandals. You’ll be the envy of Broward County.
