I'm not usually a belt person, but lately, I find myself eyeing belts like I do bracelets. They can really pull together an outfit that's lacking something. I think this ruffle belt would look especially great with a simple one-color dress. The even better part is that you can make it yourself. And, I do love a good craft project.
If a belt is not enough for you, try these DIY ruffled purse and heels. They're adorable, but, for some reason, I feel like my own handmade ones wouldn't turn out quite the same.
