Do you have to wear a belt?

Well, I have touch of class next week, and my pants that go with my suit don't need a belt to hold them up. Is it mandatory to wear a belt? Or will it look weird without?

Yes for guys and no for girls in my opinion though I still prefer it with most women's suits too. Girls can always just wear a thin sweater and leave it out anyway so I'm guessing you are a guy?

What's a touch of class...next week?

Anyhooo, the rule is if it has belt loops, wear a belt. Exception: jeans. However, the fashion police probably won't be there, they are too busy with Mariah Carey right now, so do as you will!

In Edmonton high schools, we have a day where all high schoolers wear their suits etc to school.
And yes they do have belt loops, but when I warp my pants around my waist without a belt, its already tight

If it's a high school activity , I wouldn't worry too much. Just wear what you have.

The belt doesn't have to be tight...it's just for show silly!

I think a belt makes the suit look complete
but don't hurt yourself in the process ;)

Of course you can wear a suit without a belt. It often looks more relaxed, confident. Not necessarily anyone can pull it off however. Depends largely on silhouette, formality of event, and yes, the suit itself. When done right, it's positively dapper.

Considering it's a high school event, wear whatever you wish.
