Sometimes putting together an entire outfit can be a daunting task, especially in the menswear department. Guys will admit that it’s slim pickings compared to all the ladies have to choose from at the mall or let alone in their own closets. Accessorizing an outfit can be as simple as swapping out one element for something bolder. F.H. Wadsworth has emerged from New York City with their collection of men’s belts to do just that.
Pastel-colored chinos have broken back out onto campus this semester. Generally frat guys and jocks alike opt for a functional leather belt to hold them up. F.H. Wadsworth’s ribbon belt gets the job done and it comes in a variety of prints, colors, and materials. This provides the opportunity to wear school colors without wearing collegiate apparel. That aside, standard salmon chinos are a staple in the collegiate menswear. This color stands out in itself, but the right belt could provide contrast and become the focal point of a look instead. The black and white polka-dot belt in this look reflects the color of both the polo top and footwear. White polka-dots make it pop, drawing all eyes to a newfound belt trend.
Khaki shorts are a business casual tradition amongst the male student population. They’re an easy go-to whether it’s going to class, a club meeting, or even out with friends. What’s great about khaki is that it matches virtually anything. Take this blue striped shirt for example. The contrasting blue hues that adorn this top appear to make the outfit. The same color is even replicated in the sneakers. But wait, a belt by F.H. Wadsworth was used as the focal point in this outfit as well. The “Gibson” ribbon belt silver tone D-rings flash in the light and draw in all attention. The color scheme is standard navy and white with a twist; orange creamsicle was dyed into the majority of the ribbon, making this belt stand apart from the rest.
There are no more excuses for bland male fashion with these belts trending. A texture is available for everyone with ribbon, leather and even velvet posing as options. Dark-shaded belts can be selected to blend into a more neutral look, while bright tones of red, blue, green, orange and more can be used to adorn the wardrobe of a trendsetter.
