The corset trend is something that admittedly, I wasn’t on board with at the start. The idea seemed a bit ridiculous to me and I just couldn’t envision myself sporting it. Low and behold though, over the last few weeks it’s well and truly warmed on me and I’ve been seeing a lot of things inspired by the trend in shops that have caught my fancy. The style is obviously going to be flattering on many when you think about it, because it pretty much centres around accentuating your waist which is often the smallest feature, so I can see why it’s become so popular. The top I’ve chosen to showcase this trend is a little more subdued than some of the pieces available, so I think it’s the perfect way to dip your toe into the trend if you’re not 100% sold on it. It’s basically just a plain white tee with some lace detailing that you can adjust to your preference, so it jazzes up an outfit nicely in my opinion.
You’re getting two for the price of one in this post, because I chose to pair the top with this military style jacket which is another trend that’s been circulating this season. This particular one is from Primark for just £25 so it’s an absolute bargain. They also had one in a dark grey with black detailing, but I just loved the navy and gold combo and thought it was a bit more exciting. On the bottom I went with some light wash straight leg jeans as I feel they compliment the tee and jacket more than a darker pair would, and finished off with some backless loafers.
These posts will continue to come at you on a weekly basis, so keep your eyes peeled for next weeks post! If you haven’t read my first Talking Trends post, you can do here! As always I’ve linked my top 10 corset detailing picks down below!
