I think I often underestimate what a little a belt action can do for an outfit. I usually don't even wear one with pants and just use them to add more shape when I wear those baggier, less shapely looking dresses, like so. They do their job and it's all good. But just last week I felt the need for a more interesting belt or two. J.Crew really does a good job with brightly colored belts and I thought this one would pop nicely against the brown, green, and white.
