Building your own fashion style can be a fun way for you to really get in touch with your personality and allow others to get to know you through your style as well. One unique way to express yourself through your style is by wearing a custom-made buckle for your belt.
Having an attractive, stylish buckle can really complete an outfit. They come in all sorts of different styles, sizes and materials, so you can be sure to find many different looks to choose from. If you’re into the popular Jersey Shore “guido” look, you can get a nice looking, big metal belt buckle with an Ed Hardy kind of pattern on it that will have you looking awesome while you’re fist pumping at the club.
Another idea is getting some kind of symbol on your belt that describes your personality or heritage. For example, if you identify closely with your Asian heritage, it would be a nice representative of both your heritage and your personality to choose a powerful word in a symbol from your country’s language. Another idea would be a Union Jack, if you’re British, or a flag of the country you’re from would also be a good idea to represent your heritage in a unique and fashionable way.
A belt buckle can really tell a story about you. You can express your philosophies on life by choosing an appropriate symbol for your buckle. For example, if you adhere to Christianity, you can choose a cross symbol for your belt or the Christian fish symbol. A peace sign would be another example of a life philosophy represented through your fashion style.
To make a complete fashion statement, it would be a good idea to choose buckles that match items of clothing that you already have. For example, if you have one of those popular Superman t-shirts, it would be a nice touch to add a stylish Superman belt buckle to your belt when you wear the shirt also. You can coordinate your buckle with prominent colors in your wardrobe as well. If you mostly wear purple colors than it would be a fashionable choice to choose purple belt buckles or perhaps other shades that would compliment the purple.
Vintage belt buckles such as old soda bottle caps and game symbols such as Nintendo controllers and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots are other cool and quirky types of buckles you can wear with your outfits to reveal a quirky side of your personality. These belt buckles show people that you have an appreciation for the classics and can allow people to identify with you and be able to easily start up a conversation with you.
You can also rep your favorite sports team with your belt buckle and wear it on game days with a matching jersey. Whether you’re a Yankee or Red Sox fan, you can have either of your teams’ symbols right on your belt buckle and let people know who you support. This could either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on where you are, so I’d advise you to stay cautious.
