Some trends are easy to mix into your wardrobe rotation. (Velvet booties, we love you forever.) Others are a bit trickier, and the corset belt definitely falls into that category. Spotted on multiple runways during Fashion Month, this divisive accessory has made its way to the streets, and though we were skeptical at first, these six ladies showed us how to wear one and not feel like a Pussycat Doll.

Ease in With a Subtle Version

Start small with mini laces on a not-so-wide belt. Paired with a crisp shirtdress, even a patent leather version doesn’t seem so intense.

Let Loose

Just because it’s inspired by a corset doesn’t mean your belt has to suck everything in and leave you struggling to breath. Let the ribbons hang down untied for an interesting pattern effect on a solid sweater dress.

Pair Masculine with Feminine

Add some ladylike shape to an otherwise baggy outfit. The cinched waist turns this casual look up a fashion-forward notch.

Try Matching Colors

Blending your belt to the color of your blouse or pants feels less overt. That way the belt ends up looking like a fun detail instead of a separate piece all its own. Or, look for pieces that incorporate it already.

Play With Volume

Lean into the cinched-waist look with oversize sleeves or a voluminous skirt. Your middle will end up looking even tinier in comparison.

Make It The Centerpiece

If you’re going to try an attention-grabbing trend why not just let it steal the whole show? Keep it from looking too boudoir-ish by wearing a longer hemline and ankle boots in place of strappy sandals.
