Belts serve more as an accessory for womenswear. It is difficult to settle for just 3 belts! But if you have to we suggest picking 2 in colours that match most of your shoes or accent your wardrobe palette in widths of 20 mm and 30 mm. And invest the third in slim 20 mm width made from luxury hide such as ostrich.
