Should I wear a thick or thin belt?

The right belt dresses up whatever you are wearing. Skinny belts are all the rage these days, but is that really the best style for you? Skinny belts are great for all kinds of dressed-up looks and showing off your figure. If you have a small waist, skinny belts can help give you the hourglass look that's always in.

If you are looking for a gun belt or are full-figured, you might want to opt for a thicker belt. Thicker belts are sturdier and better for sporting a casual look. Ultimately, the best belt for you is the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable. So don't be afraid to experiment until you find the perfect style!
