Corsets have been gaining momentum the last few seasons, Â there are the lace up variations, ones that have an under wire cut out, and then there are more tailoredÂ optionsÂ like this one with a zip at the back.
However, I completelyÂ understand that corsets are polarising. Scaring off many with the fear of being uncomfortable and tricky to style. The easiest way to look at them is as a large waist belt, andÂ IÂ definitely recommend taking your normal size rather than going down. We’re not endorsing any kind of body mutilation here, rather a way to play with proportions and layering.
Layer over a shirt.
One of my favourite looks with a corset, as I like that the shirt comes out the bottom.
2.Â Layer over a Jumper.
This is a great way to transform the shape of a puffy jumper or sweatshirt, as you’ll still have all the bagginess in the shoulders and arms but have a cinched in waist making the proportions look even more dramatic.
I personally like to see the jumper come out the bottom of the corset for that little extra length and layered look.
3.Â Layer over a blazer
This is great way to wear your blazer as a top, as the corset holds it all together for a chic tailored look.
