Belts Galore!: I started noticing this trend a little while back, but I’m just now getting around to reporting on it. Belts are no longer meant just to be worn through belt loops… no, no, no. Now I know the girls got this trend a little earlier than guys did, but this is one that I’m glad to see has jumped the great gender divide.
