Corsets clearly aren’t just a thing of the past. In fact, in the past few years, this outfit has turned into a cult favourite amongst celebrities like Kim Kardashian among other fashionistas after it made a comeback at the Prada Fall 2016 show. Now worn over the garment instead of under, the corset as a belt is one trend that’s still raging in 2017, and must we say we’re glad.
The waist-accentuating corset belt is not just the perfect accessory to wear on a date or to a party, but it also adds that extra to your casual outfit. Sceptical whether the corset belt is too tight? Fret not… as this time around the corset comes as a fun accessory that won’t restrict your breathing but will actually leave the ones around you breathless given your style quotient. If you’re still in two minds on how to style the corset belt, let us help you out a little more. Here are four reasons why you’ve got to up your accessory game with that uber-chic corset belt.
You can try it over a dress
Just when you think your dress is a tad plain, well… that’s because it is simply missing a corset belt. Pair it with your timeless LBD and look chicer than ever. You can even add a tan or merlot corset belt to a playful and feminine floral dress. Quite a fan of monotone? Match the colour of your dress to that of the corset belt. And in case you’re still jamming to your favourite music band, pair a corset belt with their favourite band t-shirt dress.
Or sport it with a skirt
The skirt and corset belt combo is a rather feminine one and we’re all about it! Go for a white shirt and printed skirt in a bright hue, and cinch your waist with a corset belt for a cute, summery outfit. Otherwise, pair a corset belt of a contrasting colour with coordinated skirt and top. This will only draw attention to the waist.
It’s easy to work with a blazer
Make a bold stance in the face of gender-neutral clothing and pair a well-fitting, tailored blazer with a waist enunciating corset belt. Talk about upping your power game, ladies!
And also try it with pants
Pairing a corset belt with pants makes for an interesting ensemble. We suggest you sport it with a pair of culottes or palazzo pants and a crop top to achieve that laid-back look. You can even give away a clean and minimal vibe by pairing it with trousers and a shirt. If you’re looking to incorporate it with denim, then add a corset belt to the classic jeans and t-shirt combo and step out looking like a street style queen.
