To belt or not to belt! Help!

Help! I initially purchased my dress loving the simplicity, especially after trying on so many lace and heavily embellished dresses! Now I’m doubting the lack of bling. I need some thoughts on whether or not to do a small rhinestone belt or not. (Pictured is the sample size and does not fit well....

    I love it the way it is because bling is what everyone does and it’s to busy. The simplicity is elegant and beautiful.

    It is gorgeous! No belt! It will cut the line of the dress and your body. You are so long and lean and pretty in it as is.

    Amazing dress! I always opt for no belt, they typical are cheesy rhinestone ones that are reminiscent of prom dresses. Doesn't mean you can't add bling else where! Opt for an eccentric crown (I'm wearing an Amaroq crown) or amazing necklace

    I think a simple belt with some bling would look great. The alternate is bling necklace/earrings.

    Im team no belt, it gives it a timeless feel. I think you should add bling with your accessories. Bracelet, necklace, headpiece.

    Maybe with a really thin simple belt, would look super nice. Besides that, the dress is stunning on its own!

    Thank you all!!! You have restored my confidence in my simple dress! I went ahead and ordered the $13 trim that I posted above, just in case. After reading all of the comments, I’m leaning towards no belt!

    Belt... you can always remove later if wanted or needed. Unless it’s not in budget.
