After the frenzy of bralettes and slip camisoles venturing to the top of clothing, it appears we are in the midst of full-blown underwear as outerwear outfitting. Naturally following suit, the corset is the latest piece of undergarments venturing over-garments.
The corset trend adds another option for three of my favorite outfit assets:
- adding dimension
- waist-slimming silhouette
I love nothing more than adding a subtle degree of unexpectedness to liven up an outfit. And the casual corset trend holds equal parts risk and risque without going overboard. To tone down the fussiness of the lacing more traditionally associated with bondage and bandage, pair your corset with a plain t-shirt for just the right juxtaposition of easy going with a hint of feminine.
Of course, the corset easily works its way into a more formal setting. Ditch the belt and top it over a dress or a skirt for a nipped waist.
