8 ways to highlight your waist

It’s all about classic femininity as curves step back into the spotlight

By ELLE team  September 26th, 2017

One look at every street style blog or fashion runway and you’ll see that designers have recently become obsessed with the 1950s feminine silhouette, where unbridled attention is lavished on the waist. But just in case you’ve been gorging on pizzas or slacking off at your aerial yoga class, these style saviours will come to your rescue. 

Pick from high-waisted offerings at Amit Aggarwal, to slim belts over dresses at Adam Selman. Or just strap on a canvas corset girdle like the models at Hemant & Nandita for all the style and none of the discomfort. Corset belts, broad leather belts, metallic logo belts are all the rage right now, clinch your waist with these stylish accessories and instantly elevate your look. These waist managers go perfectly with a structured silhouette or a flowy dress, making them extra edgy.
