August is heating up and with the promise of a new season it’s time to make space in our closet for fall clothes. I want to highlight a trend you will see all over fashion week: corsets and lace-up ties.
Flatter Your Figure with Corsets
My white dress by NBD is a perfect example of how designers are incorporating the vintage garment into modern pieces. The corset first gained popularity in the 1800’s as a way to slim the body and form it to a flattering silhouette. Today the design is just as flattering for your waist and looks good on all types of figures. My dress is $148 but you can wear a great duplicate from Topshop at just $52!
If you don’t want to invest in new clothes, you can buy the corset belt separately and style it with your favorite tee shirt dress. Express has a great belt at $29. The lace-up trend isn’t just for dresses. I am loving this black, strapless top by Express. These lace-up ankle leggings are perfect for a night out and won’t break the bank at just $88.
I may not have been made in LA but with this adorable, corset number I certainly feel like it 🙂
