So…Corset Belts Are Trending, and We Finally Figured Out How to Wear One Like a Lady
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.
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.
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.

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.
