In classical noir movie Too Late For Tears (1949) costume designer Adele Palmer draws attention to the actresses’ small waists using belts with charms.

If you like Hollywood girls’ look and got hour-glass body shape, check TFJstore on etsy.com: there is a good selection of hand made belts with charms.
My favourites are silver with coins and golden with sun pendant. By the way, these accessories will be perfect partners for monochrome clothes.
Pretty Little Things‘ Black Ring Detail Waist Belt will be good addition to a small white dress. You can detach the hoop and replace it with Brass Floral Dragonfly Pendant with Patina or Gardanne Beads Golden Autumn Small Oak Leaf Pendant from artbeads.com for more sophisticated look.
In my opinion (sorry, I forgot to add very important adjective “humble”) simple viscose clothes – ALLSAINTS‘s Juba Pina Tee and Tiger Of Sweden‘s Theaz Shorts -and simple Jack Rogers‘s Alana Sandal will look more stylish with the help of cute Maile Ilima‘s silver jewellery – Hawaiian Ocean Coral Branch Pendant and Sterling Silver Maile Hawaiian Ring.
Andy Cooperman‘s brooch Whiptail, pin/pendant Blue Tendril, cute and funny necklace Chiken Choker and extravagant Graduation Buckle will look very stylish with Massimo Dutti‘s elegant Black Dress.
If you believe that trends come and go but style lasts forever, have a look at Adam Neeley‘s jewellery: in my opinion, those pieces would look great on you now and 50 years later on your granddaughter.
Bird Of Fire (up) and Divina pendants from Couture collection and By Johnny‘s Raffia Drop Flair Strapless will highlight beautiful neck and chiseled shoulders of their owner.
Tango Diamond Earrings and Uno Ring With Diamond from Adam Neeley‘s Designer collection will make a perfect team with Aquascutum‘s Kelso Cashmere Jacket, Simmons Cigarette Trousers, Ennis Fitted Blouse and Duccio Venturi‘s DV30 Double pumps.
