How to Tie a Trench Coat Belt
It’s trench coat season, so it’s time for a little refresher course in how to tie the belt.
There are lots of ways you can tie a trench coat belt. This is a simple method to get you started. It’s very similar to the way you’d knot a tie.
1. Hang the coat
It’s much easier to do this when you’re not wearing the coat.
Hang it up with the back of the coat towards you.
2. Arrange the belt
Place your belt through the loops, leaving one side longer than the other.
If your belt has a buckle, make this end the longer side.
3. Cross and wrap
Take the longer end and cross it over the shorter side.
Continue wrapping it all the way around the shorter piece to create a loop.
Pick up the longer side again, bring it up through the middle behind the loop.
Feed the end through the loop and tighten it.
