You can find almost any item of clothing with corset details these days. If you are interested in the look but aren’t ready to dive in, you can dip your toes in the water by investing in accessories and shoes that draw inspiration from the style.
The trick is finding the footwear that compliments your own individual look and of course there are some rules to follow when wearing the corset style so we don’t end up looking a trussed up Christmas turkey.
Rule #1 – Don’t top to toe it. Choose one piece and work with that.
Rule #2 – Don’t tie too tight. The lacing needs to be firm enough to stay in place, but not so tight you start to resemble a roll of deli meat
Rule #3 – With your shoes, try placing the bow at the back. This will show off the shape of your ankle and will also negate the dreaded ‘cankle’ which is the last thing any of us want.
Rule #4 – Pick a style that suits you.
Don’t forget, this is a trend to have fun with. Here are some of our favourite lace up options at FSW Shoes.
