3 WAYS TO WEAR THE FLORAL CORSET

By Maybelle Morgan, 18 October 2017

There are many things we thought we’d left in the 00s. Ra-ra skirts, velour trackies, Justin Timberlake’s frosted tips. Oh, and corsets, right? Wrong. Corsets are back for AW17, but this time they’ve had an ultra-pretty floral glow up, featuring a sassy plunge neckline and contrast side-tie lacing. Here are three ways to work it into your wardrobe…

Date night

It’s safe to say that too many date nights have been subjected to the tired LBD treatment. If you’re due a shake-up, the very feminine floral corset is the way to go, but keep it balanced to avoid going too Marie Antoinette. Play with proportions and match the more revealing top half with navy floor-sweeping wide-leg trousers. Next, jazz up your outfit with bold accessories: 80s-style leopard-print heels, a midnight-crush velvet mini tote and ruby drop costume earrings.

Culture day

We like brunch, movie nights and a pub Sunday as much as the next person, but every so often a cultural RSVP will come along that requires a slightly sharper outfit turn-up than your average. Enlist the help of an oversized suit (in this season’s fave heritage checks) and add the floral corset for a sassy print mash-up. Finish with bold yellow sneakers for a splash of colour and a studded mini bucket bag for a dash of punk.

Big weekender

It’s OK to feel conflicted sometimes. The weekend rolls around and you just want to be comfy, but it’s also your downtime so you want to look the biz, too. Enter the floral corset to jazz up your cosy looks. Throw the rulebook out and layer it over a chunky roll neck for maximum snugness and pair with slouchy skater jeans. For the ultimate stylish off-duty outfit, finish with fluffy sliders. Winning.
