Andrew Stone and Christina Simonetti 1 / 8
Hear “bright belt” and you probably imagine some super-WASP-y number in hot pink with, say, purple whales swimming on it. But the recent onslaught of vivid but unpreppy-looking belts from brands like Original Penguin, Ferragamo, and Bonobos is changing all that.
“A bright belt is one of the few things a man can wear to express a sense of fun,” says Original Penguin’s Adam Weir. “Even with the most corporate gray trousers, it gives a subtle nod to the cheeky person inside the ‘uniform.’”
But keep it simple, Weir says, by adding little more than some clever socks. “Too many elements and it looks like you’re trying too hard.”
Take a spin through the gallery and find an option that you'll use to tie things together.
