Fashion - February 2017

01 Feb 2017

Lingerie on the outside

The corset of the 18th and 19th century that was worn under dresses has evolved from a tradition, to a special occasion piece of lingerie and now, to an accessory.

Thanks to Prada, who utilised the corset to frame its fur coats like a belt for its Fall Winter 2016-2017 collection, the corset is now being worn on the outside.

“Hollywood it” girls Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin have all been spotted wearing their corsets on the outside of oversized shirts, so we expect this trend to be big in 2017.

The key to this trend is all in the layering. Choose the right type of corset (whether it be a full upper body cover in leather or a suede waist type) and keep it casual over a tall tee, or keep it streamlined and dominant by wearing your corset over a thick strap singlet with wide leg pants.

Thankfully, the corset shirt trend has trickled down from the runways of Prada to the more affordable sites we know and love. Here’s three places you can pick up a corset combo for less than $40.

Inspired by Kim Kardashian’s beige tie up corset, white shirt and denim jacket combo, PrettyLittleThing is selling a ribbed crop top style corset for just $30. Available in nude or black, search “Kimmey Nude Lace Up Corset Crop Top” at http://www.prettylittlething.com.au

Although you’ll have to pay the $16 international shipping fee, LA-based brand Fashion Nova has a variety of corset belts on offer starting from just $13. More detailed designs can reach up to $33, but search the “Accessories” section at http://www.fashionnova.com to access leather, suede, denim and camo corsets.

If you’re looking for the complete corset-over-tee package, then Boohoo.com has you covered. For $36 you can buy an oversized tee and black leather look tie up corset belt. Search “Faye 2 in 1 Corset Belt T-Shirt Dress” at http://www.boohoo.com
