landscape-1490036470-hbz-corset-index

The corset doesn't have the best reputation in fashion history, but unlike the dangerous versions of the 18th and 19th centuries, the trend is back this year and more wearable than ever. With t-shirt styles, loose fabric lace-ups and corset belt versions, there are plenty of ways to wear the accessory without gasping for air in 2017. Click through for some corset outfit inspiration and the best styles to shop this season.

A lace-up corset in a thin fabric achieves that cinched at the waist look without the painful restriction of a Victorian-style corset. A white belted version layered over a loose summer dress works for both day and night.

Finally — the Best Jeans For Short Girls

Best-Jeans-Short-Girls
The short-girls club is not a bad place to be. While there have been moments I've been frustrated by my 5'2" frame — like when I recently paid a visit to the tailor, only to find I have to return yet again thanks to a new purchase — plenty of jeans look good on me. These days, so many of our favorite retailers like J.Crew and ASOS offer petite sections, and the range of denim available feels endless. Not to mention, cropped fits are right on trend, especially when you can let your fishnet tights peek out from underneath. If you really love a pair of pooling bell bottoms or wide-leg trousers, it's OK to buy them anyway and get them...

7 Wild Ways To Wear Pleats This Season

00-holding-pleats
Today marks the first official day of spring, and while the weather has yet to turn, the sudden urge to reach for the florals, flounces, and ruffles is very real. There was, however, a cooler alternative to those seasonal impulses on the runways for Spring: Pleats of varying shapes and sizes stood out at shows such as Jil Sander, Céline, and Proenza Schouler. What’s more, many of the current iterations recalled the work of Issey Miyake, the man who pioneered the modern, magical pleating technique that involves using paper and heat to create razor-sharp, origami-like folds. Given its texture and movement, pleating is certainly a powerful and surprisingly versatile styling tool. In fact, making over your daily uniform could be as...

Princess Belle’s New Outfit Comes With a Modern Piece of Jewelry

e0b99d16055e298b_BeautyAndTheBeast58726d5b9fac8
For Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, costume designer Jacqueline Durran modernized Belle's iconic yellow gown to feel and look lighter. In her reimagining of the look, Jacqueline got rid of the corset to match the princess's active and individualistic personality. In addition, Jacqueline gave Belle an accessory that totally piqued our interest. While we spotted it early on, now we know the truth; it's an ear cuff. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jacqueline explained the addition of the ear cuff, which resembles a vine, as well as Belle's tree-inspired necklace: "The thought process behind those were that everything that is worn in the castle is created in the castle, so it has to sort of partake in the...

I Tried 4 Of The (Literal) Biggest Trends Of The Season

PHOTOGRAPHED BY JIN AND DANA. ILLUSTRATED BY ANNA SUDIT.
To be completely honest, it's never been super-easy to be under 5'2" and into fashion. It's not that we petite people don't have fun getting dressed every day, but there are certain — well, many — obstacles we tend to face, like the fact that those thigh-high boots at Balenciaga are longer than the entire length of my body, or that extra-wide-legged, floor-skimming pants kind-of feel like a joke on anyone under six-feet tall. So it makes sense that I got a little, er, nervous when I realized clothing and accessories were heading in a bigger, giant-everything direction for spring. As a teeny-tiny person, it's understandably a bummer when you realize everything "everyone" will be wearing this season will surely swallow...
