Sass up your favorite formal dresses with these stylish statement-making belts. Fabulous waist-cinchers are become a red carpet staple, and for good reason. Not only are they a hip unexpected accessory, but they're endlessly flattering.

1. Obi Belt

This metallic obi belt cinches the waist and knots in a playful bow, bringing a sweet element to anything you wear it with. Because this belt is such a statement piece, stick with simple dresses. Avoid oversized patterns, which will overshadow the cute bow detail; ditzy floral prints would be perfect! Also in black, purple, and bronze.

3. Skinny Bow

A much more delicate alternative to the aforementioned bow belt, this accessory is sweet and small but still impossibly stylish. Wear this tiny belt atop a dress that has a cinched-waist shape (like one of our favorite retro party dresses). Not only will it accentuate the existing silhouette, but it will also add an adorable embellishment.More »
