The jeans are so tight, a belt almost isn't necessary.
The only people I know that wear belts are people with large enough butts that they have to buy pants a size or two larger to fit themselves inside of it, and they need the belt to keep their waistband from sliding down to reveal their butt crack.
I like belts but you are right you don't see them as much anymore - I presume the base design has the belt loops and is one of the things they never change - Why I don't know for sure - I suppose people buying might go "Well one day I might wear a belt so I better not get a pair without loops",
The style for women's jeans is pretty skinny-jean centric right now. Even flared and straight cuts (different styles of jeans, not skinny jeans) cling to the butt and thigh area, so belts are unnecessary.
I'm sure you could find women that wear belts with khakis or looser pants if they wear them for work or even casual wear, though. It's just not as common anymore, because the most popular style of pants doesn't require them.
I always wear a belt as long as my jeans or pants have belt loops. It's not about holding them up, otherwise I wouldn't wear one. It looks better, and I think a big belt really makes a statement. Plus, I like the tight feeling on my waist!
I don't wear a belt because I actually buy jeans that fit me. Using belts as an accessory wouldn't work for me either, because I usually wear shirts and sweaters that are so long that they would cover the belt anyway. Plus, if you wear something tighter and it goes over the belt part, it looks hella weird when it sticks out.
Because most of the time we buy pants that "fit" or are tight so there's no need for one. I just bough some jeans not too long ago but the waist is a little to big so I definatelty have to wear a belt with them
Very Uncomfortable. I buy tight jeans and they are tight enough around my waist that i dont need a belt. More comfy than a hard belt. Ill usually wear a belt if it looks good with my outfit and that like 10% of the time. I guess they still have belt loops on jeans because some people might want to wear a belt and others dont..
Hmm, I actually haven't worn a belt with jeans in a long time. I wear the super skinny leg ones, so I don't need to. I do wear belts sometimes, but not with these jeans. I guess if they were a bit more loose, then I would wear them again.
You only wear belts if your pants will sag otherwise. Most girls put some effort in finding pants that fit well. Belts are not very comfortable and a lot of girls wear their shirts over their pants anyways, so there's no special accessory effect to it.
My jeans just fit, so I don't need to. I only wear a belt if my pants are too big, and since my weight fluctuates I keep one handy. Them being too big is not the problem at the moment so my belt is a little dusty :p If you are a steady size and buy pants that fit there is no need. Guys usually wear looser fit pants, so they need them. Women usually wear more form fitting pants so they aren't needed.
