Though most people think of these as undergarments, with some careful wardrobe choices, the corset can also be worn in public. This is what makes them special. It can transition from underwear to outer wear with little effort. Here are some ideas on how to wear a corset in public.
- Lace up your bustier over a pretty white blouse. The details on this lovely piece of garment will stand out beautifully against the white fabric. Also, the fabric barrier between you and the corset will make it more comfortable to wear for a long period of time. You can wear an under bust OR over bust one with this style.
- Wear it with your pants or jeans. Pants can ground it for every day wear. Make sure the corset is long enough to overlap your pants’ waist. Because a top like this is a very sensual article of clothing, it may look a little too inappropriate in public with skin showing. Add a blazer if you wish to cover up a little more.
- Pair it with a pencil skirt and heels. Although this may not be appropriate for work, it is a daring look for a night out on the town.
- DO consider wearing a corset as part of your wedding ensemble. Pair a white beaded corset over a tea-length or full-length lace skirt. It is a beautiful alternative to the traditional wedding dress.
These are beautiful and functional pieces of clothing. Once only used for waist-trimming and lingerie, they are now major players in the world of fashion. These tips will help you wear your corset in fashionable and alternative ways.
