We already know that belts are going to be big for fall, and purple is one of the hot colors of the season — so why not a chic belted purple dress? Keep it monochromatic with self-belt like Debra Messing (in Gaultier) or Penelope Cruz (in Christian Dior), or get bold with a contrasting belt like Diane Kruger’s patent addition to her Gaultier dress. Here are a few of our favorites worth snapping up!

For a Splurge:
Try this Sabrina taffeta dress, $240 from, with this suede sash belt, $58 at Or skip the accessorizing and get this Kyumi belted long sleeve dress, $259 at

For a Steal:
Try this Forever 21 Gathered Knit Tunic, $23 at, with this black patent belt, $9 at Or grab this Isaac Mizrahi for Target Trapunto dress with belt, $50 at

debrah is def my least favorite, that colour is really bright something a little young for her… id have to say diane looks the best in my opinion i really like how her dress seems kinda loose but its all clinched together at her thin waist with the belt, now she is really a good example of the purple dress and belt thing.
