HOW TO STYLE A BUSTIER

Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is based around this bustier I am wearing. Now the bustier trend in SS/18 was huge on the catwalks and dominated across New York, London, Paris and Milan. In London the leather bustier over boho chic maxi dresses came down the runway at Alexander McQueen. The likes of Thierry Mugler paired tight corsets with sharp tailoring, one of my favourite looks to recreate. Finally in Milan, romantic, opulent bustiers over tee’s came strutting down the runway at Prada. Layering over a tee is a firm favourite for street stylers alike. However for something a little more softer and feminine, you could easily wear the bustier over a cotton maxi! Now for a killer night time combo why not pair a black leather bustier like mine with some high waisted tailored trousers.

Before I get started on my attire at hand, here is a little insight as to what has been happening In Mum Life. It has been a rather busy weekend to say the least, it’s one of those ones where you need another weekend just to recover. I am happy to say no morning drop offs as the boys are all off on their Easter break so it’s full on mama duties. My husband is away on business so I had to take both boys to football/soccer. As well as taking Wyatt to his Grade 5 Clarinet exam, he is extremely pleased that all his exams are now over. Two weeks ago he did his Grade 5 piano exam and passed, he is delighted with the news to say the least. I am immensely proud of his achievements!!!

BUSTIER

Right lets get back to the ensemble at hand and to this black PU bustier from Femme Luxe Finery. The Bustier comes in a cropped style in this faux leather material. Ideal for day to night and very versatile to style. When it comes to styling these corset style bustiers, the easiest way is to do layering. Whether you want to wear it on top of a tee, dress or shirt it is very easy to style it down. Style the bustier with a white shirt and some bleached denim for a more casual approach.

HIGH WAISTED TROUSERS

Now I have opted to style my bustier with my camel tone high waisted skinny trousers from Zara. These are from their SS18 collection, and as you know I absolutely love a pair of high waisted trouser, actually anything high waisted works for me. Anyone else obsessed with wearing high waisted pieces? These trousers feature front pockets as well as false welt pockets in the back. The side pockets have buttons on them and there is a front zip and two top button fastening.

BLAZER

So onto my black blazer from Karen Millen. This just makes the outfit look more put together and makes the bustier more wearable during the day. This is an oversized blazer with leather detailing around the neck area. Tailored perfectly in my opinion with a single button fastening at the front centre. Karen Millen can’t do no wrong when it comes to outerwear. Year after year they always pull it out the bag with the style and fit of their pieces. The proof is in the pudding as they say as I have been wearing this blazer season after season. Take a look HERE!

CALF BOOTS

Next and onto my calf length black boots from Carvela at Kurt Geiger. These are in the style Scrunched, a slightly slouched fit with ruched detailing to give an elegant statement. The boots have a heel which comes in at 90mm ideal for everyday wear, and is finished with a pointed toe.

BAMBOO BAG

To tie in with the camel hue I opted for my Bamboo Coffer bag from Mango. I bought this bag last year, it is an on trend bag and appropriate for Spring/Summer as the basket bags are very popular during this season. This is such a vacation bag and any variation of straw bag would work rather well here. The bag has a pretty blue and white inner lining, adjustable and detachable long strap. The design of the bag is very rigid and sturdy in the bamboo material.

ACCESSORIES

As for the finishing touches first off my trusted Adam Selman x Le Specs sunglasses in the style Scandal. Next I am wearing my rose gold Filippo Loretti Watch in the style Venice Moonphase. Finally on my lips I am wearing the shade Red Velvet from Lime Crime Velvetines to complete my look.

    I always admire how people style bustier! I have not tried this trend out yet because I feel like I don’t have the shape for it, but my goodness you wear it well! I also love the black and brown combo you have going on. It’s pretty darn sexy and cute!

    That us such a great look, I think that I am too big to fit into a bustier or anything sleveless, but you pulled it off and you look so effortless. I love the high waisted trousers with it also, and high waisted everything.

    wow I love how you style the Bustier! Personally I can’t carry a bustier. The high waister pants compliments your bustier so nicely. Your look is always very inspiring and keep it up my beautiful friend.
