Men's belts can play a supporting role in your overall ensemble, or they can be the show's star. The decision is up to you! Generally speaking, the belt will play a supporting role for more formal occasions. For example, if you are part of a wedding party, you will need to match the aesthetic of the other party members. But if you're attending a wedding, you can use a formal belt as a statement piece. Here's how to pair a belt with a suit.
Match it with your shoes
This is the standard rule of thumb. The color of your belt should be the same as your shoes, and the leather finish should be similar. For example, a pebbled belt does not match a high-gloss formal shoe, even if they are the same color. The match doesn't need to be exact; you need similar colors and finishes. You can match Saffiano belts with shoes of the same color if they have a matte finish or some texture, such as tassels.
Match with accessories
While the idea of matching belts and shoes by color is widely known, you may not be familiar with the following suggestion. Match the metal of your belt buckle to the rest of your accessories. Just like shoes, we care about color and finishes. If your metal buckle has a textured or matte finish, it will clash with shiny, sleek tie studs or cufflinks. When wearing a suit, you want all the metals you wear to match or coordinate with each other. So, choose a silver watch, cufflinks, and tie pins if your belt buckle is stainless steel.
Choose a belt
Leather is the material of choice for formal, luxury men's belts. This also applies to the basic rule of pairing your belt with your shoes when wearing a suit. Your more formal shoes will be leather, so the material of your belt needs to match your shoes.
To wear your belt as a statement piece, choose a color or style that matches your ensemble and supports your overall look. For a black suit, cobalt, purple and red is good choices. For brown suits, red, gold or orange may work. You don't want your belt and suit to look like two separate parts. Even with a bold belt choice, you'll look best if it still complements the color of your suit.
Different types of men's belts to consider
