We won’t belt around the bush: we love ourselves a chic cummerbund. Skinny, wide, braided or with a little embellishment, they are essential add-ons to shape your style—and silhouette. Fixated on the latter variety, we are singing the praises of Donna Karan’s Crystal Belt today.
Amongst a sea of fastened looks in the New York designer’s pre-fall collection, this sparkling piece stood out, thanks to its striking white leather and glistening gems. Who needs a statement necklace when you can wear your jewelry around your waist instead? To replicate the runway look, team a like-minded belt with a bedecked blouse, maxi skirt and mesh clutch—your chicness will be crystal clear.
