In a previous post we’ve made a list of pocket watches for men, and now it’s time to accessorize her as well. The recorded history teaches us that belts have existed since the Bronze Age. In the western world, belts were usually manufactured for men, the exception being the early Middle Ages. During the half of the 19th century and up until the first World War, the belt was used as a decorative accessory, and also as a part of the uniform, especially among officers. As for modern times, men started wearing belts in the 1920s, as trouser waists had a lower line. Nowadays, they are a fashionable accessory for women as well. So, with that said, here’s a list of leather belts for women.
