I love the sheer drama of this patent black Saint Laurent belt. It belongs on a Greek goddess. Honestly, if the asymmetric hardware weren’t attached to the leather, it could be a serious weapon! There are innumerable ways to wear it, but since this is such a strong statement, I like the idea of pairing it with flirty, feminine dresses. To really ensure that the belt is the showpiece of your outfit, go with a tight column style like Lanvin’s racy mini tank (at Barneys New York for $1,965). The more bodycon it is, the less the fabric interferes with the architectural aesthetic of the belt. But that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it with a flared dress. Derek Lam’s black swing skirt (at Barneys New York for $1,490) will give you the lightweight body of a dance floor-friendly dress, while still allowing the gold-tone plaque the opportunity to shine. Available on Ssense for $995.
