Giveaway: Win a Belt from KeepYourPantsOn.com

I have less of a waist then I’d like, so belts aren’t always at the top of my list. I have two skinny patent leather Calvin Klein belts from the early 1990s (belts were enjoying a moment back then), that have long been relegated to my luggage accoutrements, perfect for securing a stack of folded clothing in a suitcase. Sadly, they will likely never fit again, so no matter how prominent belts become, there they’ll stay.

I purchased a stretchy elastic belt with a hook that I might wear with a dress, but feeling way too bloated of late, the last time I wore it was with my “Like a Virgin” Madonna getup for an 1980s theme party last summer.

For everyday, I have a great medium width black belt with little brass studs and buckle that I tend to use to keep my pants up, if necessary. Walking around as though I have a loaded diaper is probably not the best look, so I have been making a fair effort to take the time to thread my belt through my Lycra-infused Madewell jeans belt loops. It’s pliable and goes with everything. I also have a wider, totally worn caramel leather colored belt with matte brass buckle that’s perfect when I’m going with more of a natural, neutral look.

The other day I bought skinny zipper pants (with two percent stretch) at J.Crew, and it being summer, also picked up a skinny perforated leather belt on which the perforations go all the way around. (Who knows, I could love three inches if I starved myself. And my belt would still fit, or so exclaimed the perky stylist.) The buckle is a too shiny gold tone, but I won’t be tucking in my popover, so it’s not really an issue. (Except for me, privately, but I’m trying to get over it.)

An in other personal belt news, my boys, who are just a year apart in age and about the same size, have been sharing one belt between them. They go to different schools, so dress up days vary and it hasn’t been an issue. Last weekend we all had to go to a bar mitzvah so I had to buy another belt. Two belts in one week, a personal record.

Before you totally fall asleep with the ins and outs of my belt life, I want to introduce a KeepYourPantsOn.com.

  1. Cascade

    The most basic buckled belt in black or brown – but I would like to break out if I get lucky with the contest!

  2. Sarah L

    I alternate between skinny dark brown leather that seems to have no function and a very functional preppy plaid on canvas. Nice choices above.

  3. laurasaffioti

    buckled- I could use a belt

  4. Tab

    Skinny belts to keep my jeans from falling down since I have boy hips!

  5. All of the above , but most often buckled. Need to expand my selection- thanks for the reminder!

Let's talk style.
