All About Belts: How to tie, hole punch, and store belts

Per your requests, I’ve compiled my favorite belt tips and tricks into one video. It was nice and awkward lying down while filming the trench-tying tutorial, but hopefully the neck strain and burning abs were worth it : )


Products mentioned: Belt Hole Puncher (a must have!) and Belt Ring Hanger
You can also buy the hole puncher on eBay, or at Michaels or ACMoore. Be sure to look for coupons!
What I’m wearing: Details in this outfit post. Nude nail polish is Zoya Shay.


The half bow loop for trench coat belts and longer fabric belts:

And the simple loop for shorter/thicker fabric belts or skinny leather belts:

Fellow coat lovers, please see my Burberry coat archives including my very first outfit post : )

    Thanks so much for this post! I ran out as soon as I watched your video and picked up a leather hole puncher from Michael's. I love quick fixes like this that can easily breathe new life into your wardrobe (skinny leopard belt was worn right away!).

    I have a dress with a belt from the same material that I want to wear for a wedding. Do I tie the belt on the front or the back?

    Loved the tutorial! I was wondering…I recently bought a London Fog trench coat, and a part of the belt for the coat prevents me from pulling it past some of the belt loops so it's really hard to tie. Do you have any suggestions? I can post pictures if you would mind answering this question! Thanks!
