What Kind of Belt for Low-Rise Jeans?


When you're wearing a pair of low-rise jeans, you have a couple significant reasons for donning a belt. First, even if your waistband is covered up with a tunic, jeans tend to stretch and fall during the day, so a belt offers functional support. And then there's the more exciting reason: low-rise jeans worn with a short or tucked top provide an ideal showcase for adding extra interest to your look, simply by adding a belt. Make your choice according to your needs and your style goals.


  • Whether you're just looking for a way to keep your low-rise jeans in place throughout the day or if you prefer a more minimalistic approach to accessorizing your outfits, reach for a skinny belt. Visualize a black-and-white striped top tucked into a pair of medium blue, low-rise jeans. A skinny belt in a neutral hue, such as brown, black or taupe helps polish your look. Or, add a colorful belt in a noticeable hue, such a turquoise, for a hint of excitement. Step into some nude booties, and you're done!

Bold Print or Color

  • If you like to have fun with your accessories but are concerned about going overboard, amp up your style with an interesting print or a pop of color. Go with a medium-width belt for just enough attention since a wide belt in hot pink could garner too many stares. A white blouse tucked into a pair of dark blue jeans gains new life when you add a black-and-gray snake print belt or a solid, vivid fuchsia belt. Slide on a pair of black flats or pumps to complete the outfit.


  • For the woman who can't get enough sparkle in her life, a belt that focuses on the bling factor is where it's at. No matter your personal style, incorporating bling is simple. For example, a gray shirt and pale blue low-rise jeans receive an infusion of a rough-and-tumble Western vibe when you add a leather belt with a large, metallic, cowboy-inspired buckle. For an urban or more uptown take on this style, a metallic leather belt or one with a bejeweled buckle works wonders.

Wide Textured Belt

  • To truly showcase your belt, opt for a wide option. However, since the size is already over-the-top, skip bold colors and search for interesting textures, instead. Imagine you're wearing a mint-hued tank tucked loosely into a pair of distressed low-rise jeans in a black wash. A black leather woven belt with an antiqued brass buckle or a black belt with metallic thread detailing gives your look an edgy kick. A pair of black booties seals the deal.
