Let’s get waisted — the corset returns to our closets

Continuing our ongoing obsession with bringing our underwear to the outer, this autumn the corset, or waisted belt, is set to play a starring role in our cold weather wardrobe. A stylish stomach cincher that began to regain momentum after stepping out at Prada’s FW16 show, the chic tummy tucker has the astonishing ability to transform even the simple shirt and jeans into an ‘outfit’. Ironically, a look that works best when styled with decidedly masculine wears — think oversized tees, blazers and tailored trousers — the über feminine garb once known for its horrendously restrictive nature is back in a more user-friendly form.
