There are some trends that I love instantly, while others are a complete no go from the offset, however, sometimes there are styles that I ‘um and ah’ about for a while before deciding to jump on the bandwagon.

My De Beauvoir Diaries - Trying out the corset trend

In today’s #OOTD I am tackling the tricky corset trend. Done right I think it can look pretty cool, but done wrong and you may run the risk of looking like you got dressed in the dark! Not good.

I stumbled across this tshirt-corset combo while browsing on ASOS and decided to give it a whirl. On initial thoughts, I wanted to style it with sneakers and a backpack to create a casual-cool kinda look, but after trying it on, I thought the boots and crossbody worked quite well and gave it a more dressy feel, with the added touch of some silver jewellery.
