The trick is using a thin leather belt (kind of like these), maybe tucking it in past the first pant loop, and then letting it dangle. That might involve sizing up a bit to give you enough extra belt to play with, but your reward is a freewheeling grace note that’s unusually easy to pull off. It’s the kind of thing that fashion week stylists do best. Don’t be surprised if you see it on the street before too long.
