    Do you really need a belt? I think your statement necklace is enough, personally.

    @MrsPhilly:  If you must wear a belt, I think a really thin crystal sash (like the one you tried and didn’t like) would look the best. But having said that, with the flowers, and the statement necklace, and the sweetheart neckline, and whatever you choose for your hair, I think there’s already enough going on, and the belt might push it into OTT territory. 

    Your dress looks great and you don’t look wide at all!

    If you go with a belt, maybe loose the statement necklace and do statement earrings instead

    Personally, I think it is beautiful without a belt because it is already so detailed and interesting. I voted for the second one because I think it is more simple and doesn’t take away from the dress. I also am a sucker for sparkle 🙂 It’s a beautiful dress and I love that neckline!

    I vote no belt, or if you must, the last, skinny one.

    I think the belt + flowers + big necklace = too much going on so I voted for “other” since there was no option for none. If you must do a belt I would do a skinny one.

    I don’t think you need a belt, there’s already plenty of detail going on with your dress and necklace.

    @MrsPhilly:  I like the third belt. But if you’re adding the straps, do you think the necklace will make it too busy?

    I love the dress, and your statement necklace is GORGEOUS!!

    That said, I definitely would NOT attempt to wear both a statement necklace and a sparkly belt/sash.  They will only compete with each other, and that will detract from your overall look.

    Also, the design of your dress really does not lend itself to your wearing a belt, because of the asymmetry of the skirt.  Your dress is beautiful by itself.

    @MrsPhilly:  I picked the flower belt because I like how it puts a flower on the opposite side from the skirt’s flower. I think they balance each other (I have OCD, lol!) and I think it looks most like it goes with that dress.

    I don’t think it needs a belt, but my favorite belt is the first one.
