I think I am responsible for this belt-with-jeans discussion but actually I did not see what Leonor wears as jeans and the belt suggestion was to balance the blouse so it is my opinion only.

However, my sister and her friends who are mostly Spanish and all are teens like, swap, share belts.

There is no rule and I am glad of it.

You are in no way responsible for how we all discuss fashion trends.  I will point out however that "mostly Spanish" means little when actual Spaniards are commenting on fashion trends in Spain.

Respectfully, Isabel, I mean that it was because of something I wrote that the discussion started and I was trying to clarify.
'Mostly Spanish' was in reference to the fact that my sister, and most of her friends, are Spanish.
I acknowledge that my English is not so fluent but you do not need to be rude or aggressive.

Mariola, I'm so sorry you thought I was being rude or aggressive, I honestly didn't want  or tried to be.  English is not my first language either and often it sounds more forcefully written than the way I want to.  Part of my working life has been in England working with Americans and often when discussing food or fashion etc with them I'd mention I'm Spanish only to be told something like "oh year, my cousin is Spanish from Nicaragua, Mexico .... which made the conversation difficult because many couldn't understand that Spanish is a language and there are huge differences in politics/society/food and and fashion between Spain and countries in Latin America when cultural components are very indiosyncratic to individual countries.  It's what I tried to say but very poorly delivered.

Again my apologies for upsetting you.  I didn't mean it.

Oh,please. Let's just have fun.It's not worth crossing lines for a belt ,a colour or whatever.And being ( enthusiastic and joyful) Royal Dishers from all over the world ( am I right?),we would probably say exactly what we mean if we used our first language. I very often feel frustrated because I am not able to put my thoughts into the correct English words.
BTW, dear ladies : I'm not trying to lecture anybody. I haven't been in the most cheerful mood these days and I felt a bit distressed. Perdonadme.

I'm sorry for my part in distressing you. Like you, I often feel frustrated because Im not able to put my thoughts and my feelings with the correct English grammar, I really envy those who can.

Nada que perdonar LG.  Perdoname tu a mi.

Who wears a belt with jeans?Huh??

At least she is still dressing like a teenage girl, not some 40-year-old business woman.

Lots of people, especially those of us who were in our 20s during the 90s.

Heck, I was a teenager during the '90s (...an '80s born...) and I almost always wear a belt with jeans............

Last time I wore a belt with my jeans was in the last 80s/early 90s and I'm 62 y.o.   

When I was younger a belt was needed. I often had the problem with jeans that they would fit my  (upper) legs, but would create a peeking gap around my waist. In some jeans my mother made some alterations, to tighten the waistband. She called them coupenaden ( = coupe seams). Another item were often the so-called high water (trouser) legs. Around 12-13 years old I had a big growth spurt and came in at around 1.80 meters. Many of my pants, which otherwise fit reasonably well, were suddenly too short. I also had trouble finding affordable tall women's jeans at the time. Currently, there are relatively many more long jeans for women to be found. Even several that are too long for me. Fortunately for several women and girls in my family, as I am currently in the middle of the table compared to many of them.

Nowadays, I need also often a belt to have my jeans fit well. I gained weight, in particular around/at my belly. I often have a hard time to find fitting affordable jeans.

Yeah, you have problems with jeans but you are 1.80 meters tall!!!!

I'm more than green, I'm frigging yellow with envy.  I'm vertically challenged at 1.60 m and all I've wanted was 10 cms more!
