Belts are often forgotten accessories. So why not wear one that no one can forget? Matthew Williamson’s metal belt (on Net-a-Porter for $825) is a sexy standout piece that’s sure to make you the silver belle of the ball. It’s pricey for a piece of metal, but you’re paying for the name. Since it’s more of a showpiece than an actual cincher, wear it over a tight dress that needs no cinching – like Antonio Berardi’s slimming color-block crepe dress (on Net-a-Porter for $1,770). The belt is the star of your outfit, so carry a toned-down bag. Valextra’s white Handy clutch (at Barneys New York for $1,110) gives you stylish Italian craftsmanship without any conflicting colors or embellishments. But you can’t let a little metal strip steal all the shine. Mirrored YSL Vanda pumps (at Barneys New York for $419) will take some for themselves and play off the futuristic vibe of the belt without turning you into Judy Jetson. Layer on some silver Eddie Borgo pieces like his pave bear trap bangle set (at Neiman Marcus for $550) and pave cone bracelet (at Neiman Marcus for $750). The bangles are like miniaturized, blinged-out versions of the belt – they’ll complement it perfectly!
