Snatched!

Who doesn’t want their waist snatched in 2018?

If you’re like me and you have not been to the gym in a year (I’m joining soon though, lool) or you haven’t been at all, then girl you know you need a corset in your wardrobe!

As usual, I was in the sale section and found this gorgeous item. I was in search of a statement piece and this mind-set helped me determine what I needed and what I did not need. Therefore shopping was made easy (Just thought to give a dash of a bonus tip, additional information on how to shop smart is on my previous post Bargain shopping 101.

For my loves who don’t know what a corset is, hold up!  You don’t need to google that, I shall help you out.

“A corset is a firmly fitting undergarment usually worm by women. It extends from under the chest to the hips to help shape the body” easily put to help snatch yo waist! According to net-a-porter, it makes a statement without screaming for attention! That’s boss moves in my opinion.

As fashion has continued to evolve it is now worn as an over garment as well and also incorporated into clothing items.Women even wear it to the gym to help aid workouts with the aim of reducing inches around the waist.

Benefits of wearing a corset:

  1. It helps snatch yo waist!
  2. It helps snatch yo waist!
  3. It helps snatch yo waist! (lool! pardon my excitement, but its true)

According to Popsugar , this trend is hard to pull off but I’m here to make it simple for you. I’m not so sure I agree with it being hard to pull off, in my opinion it would depend on how you carry yourself wearing it. You see how Rihanna wears anything, literally anything and looks drop dead gorgeous in them? you can do that too. Simply wear the item and own it!

For those who still don’t think they can’t, don’t worry I gotchu!

  1. Wear one that is incorporated into a clothing item. The way the corset is incorporated into this skirt makes it so much easier to pull off1
  2. Wear it as an accessory, we’ve got waist belts made in form of corsets these days , simply wear it the way you would wear your waist belt.

Styling tips

  1. It can be worn with a blazer to further accentuate your waist.
  2. It can be worn with a dress
  3. It can be worn with a work shirt or a T-shirt.

You can literally wear it with almost everything. Be creative and style it your way! If you try it out, do tag me in the photo on Instagram, I would love to see it.

See you in my next post
