As a Top // Who knew a corset could pair with a pencil skirt and a high neck blouse? But it works. The key here is sticking to a neutral palette and sophisticated silhouettes.
As a Waist Cincher // Why not use the corset as intended and give some much-needed shape to an otherwise straight-up-and-down outfit? Note: for those looking to dip a toe into the trend, going white-on-white is the easiest place to start.
