Why then do some women insist on wearing tacky, oversized, ugly and unpurposeful belts? A belt is not a complicated article of clothing, it only has two functions - to hold up your pants or to cinch your waist (and I’m not even entirely sure about the latter). So what, then, is the function of these abhorrent, gigantic, and inevitably mismatched wastes of material that pass as wide waist belts? They aren’t holding up pants. They aren’t cinching the waist (they are, however, making it look bigger by drawing all attention to it). As for their decorative qualities, this look is even less classy than the hip-jiggling hula girl glued to the dashboard of all NYC taxis.
So I ask you, is there a purpose, a reason, for this hideous,
fashion paux pas?
Yes my friends, there is a reason; it is called Crystal Meth and we all know that drugs are bad.
The moral of today’s story: unless you are a pro wrestler or suffering from a hernia, leave the wide waist belts alone.
