Rope belts as a fashion statement
Belts in general have been used by the fashion industry in some way or another for many years. Sure, belts can be used to hold up your pants, but they can also be used to accentuate your waist. Rope belts themselves have come in and out of style in the fashion industry, but they always come back around and never seem to fully go away.
Some people wear rope belts in the traditional way, which is through their belt loops. Others, especially women, love to wear rope belts over dresses, tops and even skirts to make their waists appear smaller. It also creates a focal point for their outfit. The rope belt is a less traditional option, so many people in the fashion industry love to use them.
Rope belts out of necessity
Next, some people might simply not have much else lying around the house. Maybe you’ve misplaced your belt, you’ve grown too big or too small for it or you simply haven’t gotten around to buying one. Whatever the case, if you have some rope lying around, you can fashion a makeshift belt that will work until you can get something from the store. It’s not that the makeshift belt won’t continue to work, it’s just that since it’s not professionally made, it could fray, come apart or be tied with the wrong kind of knot. This can mean an uncomfortable fit or you might have to keep re-adjusting the knot and the belt.
