A blog about styling, patterning and making stays and corsets for modern, historical and fantasy looks.

Style a Corset with a dress

A corset can be styled as a layer over a dress quite well. In these 3 images we see cosplayer and model Carley Winn is wearing a blue linen corset over a blue and white floral dress.

The corset provides a well-defined figure which contrasts well with the flare of the skirt which is provided by petticoats.

The combination of the corset and dress looks great. The narrow waist on the corset and the flair from the hip of the skirt really works with her figure to make a great look. In this case the jewelry is pretty minimal with a broach on the top of the corset.
