It never occurred to me that it is a no-no to leave out belts when wearing pants that have belt loops. It was until a friend of mine mentioned it that I saw how bare and incomplete the look could be. I now find that many people leave out belts especially when they wear shorts with belt loops. Sometimes we feel like it's a waste of time wearing belts if the waist of the pants or shorts fit perfectly. I use to feel the same way but now I think that putting on the belt completes the look. The belt doesn't need to be worn tight. I went belt shopping recently and noticed that there are some fashionable belts out there. The belts for guys are limited in both colors and designs but for women, there are some over-the-top designs to plain belts. I found myself tweaking outfits on people by either adding a belt or switching their belts for a particular style I had in mind. It was fun. I would advise that people should wear belts more often. It makes, not breaks, an outfit if the right one is worn the right way.
