Hallo there Fashion Lovers,

Hope you are loving the rains as I am. Today I have a beautiful model with me Wanjiku a fellow fashion blogger at www.eesome.co.ke . I love her unique style and creativity.

This week lets focus on Corset belts. Traditional Corsets were used by women to acquire a curvy fashionable silhouette. It’s ability to nip the waist and give an illusion of bigger hips and burst to form an hour glass figure. They were tailored to be layered on ball gowns and evening dresses.

A corset belt is an accessory which is characterized by its lace up detail which is used to cinch your waist giving you a desirable feminine silhouette. They boast a tad higher functionality as you can layer them over coats, shirts, shirtdresses and dresses.

Give your style a fresh spin by embracing this versatile accessory on easy days, lunch or dinner dates or by spicing your office look.

You might want to ground the look with a pair of heels, sandals or even converse shoes. Wanjiku has challenged you to think outside the box by cementing the entire look with boots. I love the whole idea because of the current weather change.
