If this belt doesn’t show up in the Fifty Shades movie, the costume designer is slacking majorly. A big, thick blazer is probably not the best way to showcase a garter-inspired waist-cincher, but hooked on the right dress, this is hot with an X-rating.
The dangling straps seem random until you see the full effect once it’s on the body, and then it all makes sense. Sexy, seductive sense. D-rings at the ends make you envision Agent Provocateur thigh-highs, but who needs to be that obvious when it’s all about suggestion? Finished off with corset-esque laces, designed to cinch you at the waist with a perfect fit, this is the bondage look in all its “tie me up, tie me down” glory. But the question remains, are you a leather-loving dominatrix deep down or an eager innocent indulging in some naughty role-play? On Net-a-Porter for $535.
