    No belt , you look great in the dress and you really don’t need it.

    I’ll add that the lines the lace create get thrown off if the belt is on… The design flows much better without the belt.

    I think a simple necklace would be nice with this, but I like simple haha.

    skunktastic :  I disagree with that, as it can flatter the waist depending on the dress the style and belt. However, given the Chevron pattern, it doesn’t work with this belt (and might not with any belt). 

     

    Also, I don’t see it with a necklace, given the shape of the neckline. Maybe wear a simple pendant if you really want one.

    I would say no belt! You’ve got a fantastic body, the dress is so elegant on it’s own and you wear it so well…I love the lace look.

    Belt or not, that dress looks amazing on you, and I really don’t have an opinion on it, HOWEVER, I am firmly NO Necklace! Rock out some amazing statement earrings with that dress!

    Absoultey no belt. It breaks up the lace and your lovely figure, it doesn’t match the dress at all, and already looks like something that was more in style 10 years ago.

    I’m super in the minority here, I know, but I actually really like it with the belt more than without. For me, it adds a touch of drama and bling, and also makes your already-fabulous hourglass figure look even more pronounced. The dress is beautiful, but looks like it’s missing something without the belt on. But apparently that’s just me lol.

    No belt. You look absolutely gorgeous with or without but I think without because it lets your curves speak from themselves! I wish I had your body!

    I’m a vintage clothing lover, so I adore the belt… however, It does break up the line a bit. I’d say for the first dramatic moment of people seeing you in that stunning dress, no belt. 

    But then put it on later for fun at the party! 🙂 

    I am loving these belts that are slightly reminiscent of the Gatsby-era elegant sparkle. Such fun!

     

    ETA: you have an incredible figure, and if I zoom in a bit the belt really emphasizes your little waist. It’s just when the photos are small that the simple lines of the dress stand out with no belt. 

    They both look great – choose which one brings your heart joy. 

    Flip a coin and one side is belt, one side is no belt. If you’re a tinge disappointed with either answer, you have your true answer!

    I’m pretty much always no-belt and yours is no exception. Absolutely no need, you have a classic hourglass figure and that dress looks like it was created for you! No need for clutter at the waist. 

    Maybe one of those y-shaped necklaces? And delicate drop earrings. Nothing too sparkly or chunky, let the dress and veil shine.

    Since not as many people weighed in on the necklace question (including myself) I’ll chime in to say no necklace.  Ordinarily I’m a big fan of the statement necklace depending on the dress, but since you are relatively well endowed and the dress further enhances that, I think a larger necklace would look congested and a simple pendant would likely get lost with that dress. 

    If you wanted to add something besides earrings, maybe a bracelet.  (Maybe – I personally hate them for myself though.

    ohdarling :  Like everyone else, no belt. That dress is so beautiful and fits you perfectly.

    If you do a necklace I would do something very, very simple. Nothing that is clunky or hangs down. I also think simple earrings, I think statement earrings would take away from the dress and there would just be too much going on, kind of like the same thing with the belt.

    But, I am a fan of classic, simple jewelry and not really into big chunky pieces, some can be done right but for the most part I find them pretty tacky and dated.
