    Hello again Beth, :-), 佩 is normally used in the old days when something is considered to be a nature part/extension of your clothes, for example the badge on a union or a sword that the soldiers carried in the old days, or the patterns on the emperors' cloak.

    戴 is the one you want to use.

    for example: 请把你们带上的腰带戴上。

    The Chinese people used 佩 in the ancient time.Only when we talking about hats,we use 戴.the verb 系,is the right word as we use.

    戴is better. Normally it use 佩戴 for ornaments
