The Corset: From The 16th Century to The 21st


Good morning friends,

Who wouldn't want to take a trip back in time to the 16th century when extravagant gowns and bouffant hair were at their height?  Although we'd all love to be lords and ladies for a day, a hoop skirt and layers of heavy fabric wouldn't be the most practical for driving cars or going to the grocery store.  

Since it's one of the biggest trends of the season, I've decided to take the corset into my own hands and make it my own.  The other challenge that comes with a corset is the idea that they can look overly sexy.  With this in mind, I set out to find a corset detail that was flattering and fashionable without it being too sexy.  The perfect piece showed up at my favorite shop right now, Zara!  I fell in love with this top because of the small corset detailing just around the waist.  This helps accentuate your figure, but with the high neck, I feel more comfortable in it.  I am also loving the exaggerated shoulders, for a little bit of extra detail. 


Since I wanted the corset top to be the star of the show, I paired it with some plain, mom jeans from Topshop.  (If you're on the hunt for the perfect jeans, I would always recommend Topshop jeans, whether it's for mom jeans, embellished jeans, or classic skinnies.)  Because I'm a fan of a little metallic and I've been dying to wear them, I finished of the outfit with my new Karl Lagerfeld loafers.  With the chain across the front, they give that perfect nod to this season's hottest shoe, the Gucci Loafer. 


As always, thank you for taking the time to visit my stylish little corner of the internet.  Leave a comment below with the spring trend you're most excited to try out!  Scroll down to recreate my look or to see some other corset options for you to give a try! Have a wonderful week!
