Be Vintage, Goth or Avant garde in a corset style party dress
Corsets have, for a long time, been a staple part of a woman’s wardrobe. Back in the day when it was necessary to look “party ready” at all times, women were required to wear uncomfortable, tight-fitting corsets made out of whalebone in order to pinch their waists and give them an hourglass figure. Uncomfortable or not, life without the corset was inconceivable. In the present day, a number of different, less uncomfortable materials are being used to construct modern corsets, which feature primarily in gothic, vintage, or avant-garde style party dresses. These corset style party dresses cover a range of different fashion styles and are guaranteed to provide a slimming, hourglass effect to the wearer, just as they did in the old days.
There is no limit to the number of colors and fabrics available; corset style party dresses are available in a variety of materials, ranging from standard cotton and lycra, to satin, silk, and even leather. The construction of a quintessential corset style party dress involves an elongated bustier with a sweetheart neckline, the back of which can be tightened. Here a variation is present in context with the back; a vintage style dress will be laced much in the style of sports shoes, whose laces can be pulled and tightened. The more modern styles however, feature concealed zippers, which are more comfortable but cannot be tightened. There is no fixed length to the dress; once again the vintage style will naturally feature a balloon like underskirt and will be floor length, whereas the more modern styles will ignore the uncomfortable underskirt and will simply feature the corset on top. From the standard A line skirt, to flowy asymmetrical styles to more adventurous frills and flounces, to simply, a mini dress style, which ends mid-thigh, the options are endless.
For those who would like to channel their vintage corset style party dresses for the upcoming Halloween festivities, it will be fun to visit vintage clothing stores which no doubt, stock a number of old style corsets and underskirts.
What better way to bring out one’s regal and sophisticated style than in a vintage style corset dress, complete with heavy Jewellery and a bouffant hairstyle! For those who would like to channel their inner goth, corset style party dresses have been popular with the “alternative” fashion scene for some time now. Stick to a black corset dress with black lace overlays, and pair it with a pair of fishnet stockings for that authentic “goth” look. Add some drama via a vibrant red rose in your hair, and a pair of chunky thigh high boots.
For those who like the all things avant-garde, nothing spells “high fashion” than a corset dress with interesting appliqué work. Think of fashion icons that are known for their avant-garde looks such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj. Think of bright, almost garish colors and plenty of glitter, not to forget, over the top accessories. Both Gaga and Minaj are known for pairing bright contrasting shades together, so a black corset with a pink skirt and leggings in a neon tone would suit this look. Don’t forget the over the top accessories, which can range from vintage feather hair bands to multitudes of pearl necklaces. This look is guaranteed to garner a lot of attention.
Overall it is obvious that corset style fashion is one of those styles which will never go “out” of fashion, since it has stuck around for centuries already and is highly regarded for its slimming effects. Have fun with this trend and remember to work with a corset style, which is slimming but comfortable for you.
