84 Brilliant Belts

From Badass Booze Belts to Naughty Disguised Belts

— February 1, 2011 — Art & Design
Belts have traditionally been used as supports to keep pants and trousers on the waist, but have evolved into many different shapes, forms and uses over the years. Though they are still a major fashion accessory, belts can still also be found in art, design and even technology.

From hidden handymen belts to bovine belt benches, this top list presents both the common and unusual applications for belts.

Implications - From video game controller belts to handbags from recycled car parts, belts continue to be a great statement piece to finish off an outfit as well as hold up your pants.
