Many of the current huge fashion trends are borrowed from the Victorian age. Corsets and high-neck statement blouses are key fashion attributes of the Victorian era, transformed for 2017 high style. This BLACK COTTON CORSET from ZARA can be worn over dresses, jackets or tops to create a clinched-in-waist aesthetic, while adding a unique look to a boring outfit. I paired the corset with an ECRU HIGH-NECK BLOUSE from ZARA. The viscose material has a sheen, a lightweight feel and a silky look to it…very classy. The draped neck adds a sense of decor, replacing jewellery, allowing the combination of the unique neck and corset to be the accessorising features. I combined the on-trend top half with black culottes and black stilettos to complete the high-fashion, statement outfit.
