We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – noughties-style corsets are NEVER making a comeback! Soz Xtina and co but here’s zilch chance of walking into a party nowadays and seeing your gal pal in a full-on corset à la Moulin Rouge, with low-slung jeans and tacky kitten heels. It’s just not going to happen!
However, corsets ARE back and luckily they’ve been given a cheeky little modern makeover! The trend has officially escaped from its noughties grave and this guide will show you how to nail the look – 2017 style!
They’re a bit of a flashback to the old school style, but we don’t wear them solo these days (obv). Instead, corset belts are now there to ensure all eyes are on you even if you’re just rocking ‘jeans and a nice top’.
To own that casual chic vibe throw on some high-waisted denim and a pretty tee, then make the most of your banging figure with this black corset belt…
Belts are also fab for repping the sports luxe trend; just team an oversized t-shirt or a sweatshirt with some glam leggings and your fave trainers, then add a splash of sex appeal with your leather-look, corset waist belt.
It literally only takes this one accessory to upgrade your off-duty outfit and you’ll always be slaying, even when you’re just chilling!
The pièce de résistance when we’re talking waist-clinching corsetry, corset dresses are uber-sophisticated, so we’re keeping the layering and accessorising to the minimum.
Pick up the LBD version and toughen it up with an Amelia Lily leather biker jacket and strap-detail ankle heels for a sizzling look…
Or opt for pure white with an AW17-ready faux fur shrug. A rose gold clutch and girly stilettos add to the femininity of this combo.
If you’re feeling lazy and you need a stylish quick fix, look to our batwing tops with their built-in corset. They’re easy to wear and are comfortable but you can also dress them up for a spontaneous night out. They’re fab if you want to show off your bod without revealing too much skin too.
Electric and royal blues like this one are perfect for adding a splash of sultry winter colour to our AW17 wardrobes. In fact, if you aren’t feeling quite confident enough to try pillar box red, blues could quite possibly become your go-to style saviors for the season.
So, add a wrap top and a set of powerful heels, and you’ve successfully brought corset trousers into the workplace. Damn, girl!
