As we head into coat season, I wanted to share some of the different ways I design and tie my belts on trench coats and wool coats! Not only do these tie methods add a stylish finishing touch to an outfit, but they also prevent your belt from falling off and give you a more defined waistline when you open your coat. I’ve included a photo of the finished knot below.
When I open my jacket, I like to use this clean and simple knot in the back to secure the belt. It’s also great for shrinking some material on the back to create a small shape, like I shared before and after this post. I’ve trained myself to tie my tie in the back, but if you’re just learning this, you can tie your tie before you put on your jacket while it’s hanging on a hanger or over the back of your chair.

- Back Tie:Side Knot
This is the easiest, most fail-proof option anyone can do! I love this if I’m wearing my coat open and want to quickly secure the belt so it doesn’t fall off or get lost.
