5 Key AW15 Looks

Autumn-leaves

This season you can embrace your love of corsets while still celebrating the hottest trends of the season. Here are five stunning looks that graced the AW15 catwalks.

Monochrome

The love of monochrome has been around for a few seasons and is set to stay. The combination of striking black and white elements has a timeless elegance to it, and suits every complexion. Monochrome is beautifully versatile, being as appropriate for office wear as it is for social occasions. Monochrome is the perfect basis for a capsule wardrobe, and investing in monochrome items means you will get plenty of wear out of them. Even when the monochrome trend fades, you can still mix white and black items in with the rest of your wardrobe.
Black Bolero & Ivory Corset
To achieve this look, wear our Long Satin Overbust Ivory Steel Corset with a slinky black pencil skirt such as our Long Black Duchess Satin Pencil Skirt and a sexy bolero such as our Black Taffeta Fitted Bolero Shrug Top.

Remember to finish your monochrome look off with the right accessories to complete the look. Our Patent Rounded Toe Platform Pumps in Black with White Contrast are the perfect way to complete this look.
Black & White Heels
Pinstripe is another stunning way to interpret this look. We have a selection of black and white pinstripe corsets, skirts, corset dresses and shoes.

Scarlet

Red is the perfect colour to see you through the autumn and winter months. Wearing a bold shade of scarlet will give you an air of confidence, and is an unspeakably seductive and powerful colour. Hot red has been on trend for many seasons now, but it still featured strongly on the AW15 catwalks. Marni, Christian Dior and Hermes were amongst the designers who opted for a bold shade of scarlet this season.

Embrace the trend for scarlet seduction with our elegant Red Taffeta Corset Dress with Red Corset team with a pair of striking red heels and a red lipstick for a glamorous look. If head-to-toe red isn't your style then you can still be on trend in a far more subtle way. Wear red statement shoes or boots with a little black dress on an evening out. Our Red Satin Shoes with Beautiful Diamontes or Red Suede Button Detail Ankle Boots are perfect for this.

Mini-skirts

Every season the top designers give us a variety of skirt lengths to choose from. For autumn and winter 2015, the key skirt lengths are just below the knee or a 1960's style mini-skirt. Our circle skirts fall to just below the knee, for a demure look, as do our pencil skirts. However, it is our mini-skirts that are the most flirtatious and packed with personality. If you want to stay achingly on trend then our Black & White Stripe Short Pencil Skirt benefits from being the hottest length, as well as exhibiting the coveted monochrome look.

Our Black Cotton Short Pencil Skirt is a wardrobe staple, as it goes with everything. Wear it with this season's oversized jacket and a pair of long boots, for a chic and fashionable look.

Layering

DKNY, Prada, Stella McCartney and Gucci all unleashed their models onto the AW15 catwalks in a collection of layered outfits. The laissez-faire, 'just threw it on' effect may look effortlessly simple but it actually takes a little thought to get it exactly right. The beauty of this look is that you don't need to buy a whole new wardrobe to achieve it. Simple mix textures, colours and styles together to create a whole new look.
Corsets are ideal for layering. Wear your corset under a silky sheer blouse and top with a woollen cardigan and oversized jacket. Wear with fitted trousers and boots. Opt for a corset in an interesting fabric to create a rich palette of texture. Our Genuine Cowhide Leather Steel Boned Corset in Black is perfect for this, and leather is one of this season's hottest fabrics.

Alternatively, opt for something precious such as our Green Silk Dita Steel Boned Corset or Red Leaf Brocade Steel Boned Corset with Black Satin. Brocade is massive right now thanks to designers such as Marc Jacobs and Erdem featuring this luscious fabric in their AW15 shows.

Wearing your corset as part of your casual look, means you will get so much more wear out of it. A corset can be ideal for clubbing and parties, elegant evening wear or teamed with a fitted pair of jeans and a cropped leather jacket it can look laidback while still oozing an air of sophistication.

Victoriana

There was a deliciously Gothic vibe to a lot of the AW15 collections, meaning the corset is one of the hottest wardrobe essentials this season. Givenchy, Alexander McQueen and Simone Rocha were amongst those who exhibited exquisitely dark Victorian-inspired creations.

Our Steampunk range is the best way to interpret this style. Though ruffles, frills and lace detailing are also immensely hot right now. Our Waist Cinching Satin Under The Bust Rouge Trixi Corset or Black Duchess Satin Lilah Steel Boned Corset are perfect for this look.
Rouge Corset
Team with our Black Bustle Skirt with Lace and one of our boleros for a taste of Victoriana glamour. Wear boots with button detail such as our Over The Knee Black Matt Button Detail Boots.
Black Button Boots
Using corsets to interpret current trends, means that you can look achingly chic and fashionable while still projecting your personality and wearing clothes that make you stand out. Corsets are ideal fashionwear, as they shape your curves and give your outfit structure while looking unspeakably elegant and glamorous. So why not pick out a corset that ticks all of the boxes this season? Something that is bang on trend, but a far throw from the typical High Street wear that everyone else will be seen in.
