January 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #7: Corsets Made A Comeback --- And Are Here To Stay

Tip of the Week

One of the coolest trends to hit the plus-size fashion industry is the corset. Corsets made a vintage comeback at the millennium and have managed to stay around. Hot retailers, like Ashley Stewart and Avenue, are still managing to incorporate them into their seasonal lines, with funky new ideas.

Corsets cinch the waist in slightly (without being uncomfortable),
giving you a nice, slight hourglass figure (even if you are not
naturally shaped that way). The best part is that this look can go for
day or night.

For the office, stick with a black or white corset and pair it with black trousers and a long white shirt. If you want to jazz up your outfit, add color with your choice of accessories. Red would be an obvious option here, but you can also wear blue, green or purple for something different. If you are a little more daring, go with yellow, lizard print heels or blue patent leather, peep-toe platform heels with multi-colored accessories on top.

For night, open the buttons on the shirt and go with another color corest like a metallic gold or silver. Sequined or glittery shoes would be a great option with this outfit.

The key to wearing a corset is to wear it with confidence. It is perhaps one of the best pieces to show off your curves in a flattering light.
