A transparent belt with an oversized bright purple buckle gives Michelle's outfit some unique flair. Clear belts that don't look totally tacky can be difficult to find (especially on a budget), so we've found a versatile solution: Bare Necessities' Invisibelt Invisible No Buckle Clear Belt. The belt is actually designed to cinch in pants that are a little too big on top without the bulk a typical belt, so you can still wear it under a slim top. In terms of recreating Michelle's look, however, you can use the no-buckle buckle as a base to create your own perfect transparent belt with a few creative touches such as ribbon or paint.

If you don't already own a pair of black flats, they're versatile, adaptable and well worth the investment.

Michelle's outfit gets a dose of classic sophistication with a double-strand pearl necklace. For a similar style that won't break the bank, try the Cezanne 10mm Pearl Necklace from Dillard's, which has two strands of glass pearls.
