There was a time when I was studying Fashion and we were taught that corsets are considered a type of lingerie. With time I have seen this change and how the corset has basically become: underwear as outerwear. At Uni we had a whole module dedicated to corsets and we had to stitch one of our own, I found the one I designed and stitched the other day and thought it would be the perfect piece to style my next look. Keeping with the trend that has been hot since 2016, I have put together a look on how to wear a corset over a shirt.

Corsets can also be very tricky and can look a little trashy, my tip on trying out this trend is to be careful with leather corsets (try a fabric one if you’re trying it for the first time). One way you can tone down your look if your wearing a corset is by sticking to the same family of colors or go very neutral. This is what I have done with my look, as my corset is a cotton floral printed one with shades of blue I paired it with a blue shirt underneath. A white shirt could also work for those who really want to put all the attention on the corset! The great thing about wearing a corset over a shirt is that if your hesitant at showing some skin but want to try the trend this will really help. I wore a pair of skinny jeans with my look and it really spices up your ordinary shirt and jeans ensemble, think of it as a wonderful accessory to your top.

Accessorising this look was a little tricky as usually it’s very easy to pick up a black, brown or gold detailed bag but none of that would work with this outfit. I usually would never carry a white purse but somehow it went well with it and looked quite subtle, to match it I finished my look with a pair of silver metallic loafers.
