Evette Encounters

effortlessly chic street style

Laced Up

Shauna Jackson-JayneComment

For centuries women have worn body shapers in order to look more appealing to the opposite sex. Recently, Kim Kardashian whose entire presence exudes sexiness, has been openly wearing corsets and waist trainers as part of her street style. Her styles have been hit or miss, but the fun and allure of this new trend is on display and has created a fun trend that I for one will be trying.

A corset has an air of femininity and a juxtaposition of bad-assery to it! It’s the new “bedroom-to-street” trend just as silk and lace camis have come and gone. But there’s a huge difference in those two, a corset or corsetted belt looks good on ANYONE. I myself, struggled with the slip dress trend as I found it to be so damn pretty and romantic but it’s not very practical. Silk is a fabric that shows every lump, bump and curve and I just never felt comfortable in it.

I love the ease and accessibility this corset trend has created. It’s one simple piece but makes a huge impact on your ensemble. I’ve scoured the web for affordable options for this flattering trend. Let me know what you think!
