With this season’s lace-up corset belt, upping your style quotient is now an absolute cinch – pun intended. You can begin by thanking Prada’s Fall/Winter 2016 show, where lace-up fabric belts were used to style a majority of the looks. This accessory is undoubtedly fall’s hero piece, simultaneously ticking the “super cool” and “super flattering” boxes. And with stylish influencers like Susie Bubble and Kate Foley using this shape-defining accent as the focal point of their ensembles, you know it’s here to stay.
An added extra is that this accessory will prove to be a highly useful addition to your wardrobe. With its help, any plain old dress, an oversized tee, a button-down shirt, or even a coat (as inspired by the catwalk) will get a fresh update for the season ahead.
