I don't know if there is necessarily a "correct direction to wear a belt", but the conventional way is for the buckle to "point" in the same direction as the fly of your pants and the placket of your shirt. I've read that, in some parts of the military, your shirt placket, your belt buckle, and the fly of your pants must be aligned in order for you uniform to pass inspection.
