For a strappin’ good look, why not wear a belt? The wonders of a little accessorising here and there really help one define oneself just by clothing, a fascinating concept in itself. And even if you’re wearing a belt for more functional purposes, at least it’s better than having your pants fall down.
Teachers often use that threat to scare high-schoolers when the trend was (or is) to wear one’s pants low enough to expose undergarments to the public. “Pull your pants up, or I’ll pull them down for you!” I never quite understood why they bothered to wear a belt anyway, if they wanted to go for the ‘falling off’ look. Maybe it was the drastic contrast and paradox of the situation that made it so stylish. I will never understand fashion either.
