Decorative belts are fabulous and add style to an outfit. Decorative belts are statement pieces and it is usually enough to have one statement piece for any outfit. A necklace should not be needed with a fancy belt. In fact a necklace will detract from a beautiful belt or fancy belt buckle. Wear some attractive earrings that coordinate with your belt instead of a necklace. Belts will call attention to your waist / mid section. They are more flattering on taller females with smaller waists. In other words accentuate the positive. If you want to wear a decorative belt and you are shorter than 5 feet 7 inches choose a very narrow belt instead of mid or wide style.
