I want/need this gorgeous belt from Topshop! At £38 it's not the cheapest accessory update but it definitely has the power to take a boring outfit into party territory. Chuck it on over a plain black shift dress with a bit of red lipstick and some newly painted nails (try dark green for the latest look). Or belt up over a boyfriend cardi, white tee and skinny jeans to add a bit of sparkle to your day.
The brooch and corsage detail gives a nod to the opulence trend whilst allowing you to pretend to your friends that you made it yourself... they never have to know the truth!
