From the catwalk to the red carpet, it's going to be all about the metal belt this season.

A bit fancier than your standard leather version, the metal belt is a versatile piece that adds glam and sparkle to day dresses, an edgy cool touch to evening pieces, and a dressy lift to casual garments.

With everyone from Glassons to Matthew Williamson making them, there's bound to be one for every budget. Which will you choose?
