I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I managed to strike that perfect balance between relaxing and productive over the last four days so I’m ready to tackle the week ahead.
With today being Cyber Monday, there are still some insane deals to be had. I’ve added my Top 10 Cyber Week picks in the Holiday tab above. They include notes on how each products’ sizing runs, alternate color and fabric options and ideas for how to style each item. The best part? Everything I’ve selected is under $100 and I will be continually adding picks as the holiday sale season goes on!
Today’s OOTD is a special one because I had my eye on this coated wool corset for over a year! When Moda Operandi put it up for pre-sale I immediately snatched it up and patiently waited the six months for its release. I had hoped to wear it during NYFW, but sadly it didn’t arrive in time.
The first time I wore it out was to host a pop-up event with one of my favorite local jewelry lines, Thatch. It strikes the perfect balance between edgy and eye-catching so if you’re playing hostess or attending lots of holiday parties, I highly recommend giving the corset look a try.
While corsets may seem like a thing of the past, they have made a huge comeback in fashion, found everywhere from the runway to street style. To get the look, I’d recommend keeping your layers structured (like this oversized shirt dress) or voluminous (think long flowing skirts and silk tops). Pairing a corset over anything form fitting just takes you in an entirely different direction, one best avoided IMHO.
As we move into winter, I’m definitely going to be styling this baby under an oversized blazer with a silk top, mom jeans and ankle boots. Just be sure to keep your base layer thin enough so the corset still fits and doesn’t have too much bulk to rest against.
What do you think of the corset trend?
