The Corset Belt: Will You Wear This Hot Spring Trend?

Style Savvy 6

Newport NewsRachel Zoe has named the corset belt as one of spring's hottest trends, and ...

Eh, I don't know.

I'm not sure I'm feeling this one -- particularly for spring.

I don't know about you, but spring gets pretty warm around here. The last thing I want around my waist is a thick piece of leather.

However, not all corset belts are quite as wide as the $139 Newport News version to your left.

See some more options after the jump, then tell me in the comments if you'll be wearing this Zoe-endorsed trend when the weather gets warmer!

BebeThis woven stretch corset belt (Bebe, $49) is a thinner, less-expensive version, but if you're looking for a low-cost version of the look, you're going to have a hard time finding it. Most corset belts up for sale now are FAR more expensive.

 

FarfetchI'm actually digging this Jean Paul Gaultier corset belt (Farfetch, $605.50) for a sexy night out, but I'm not willing to shell out six Benjamins for the look!

 

Luis AviaromaThen there's this Luisaviaroma corset belt, up for grabs for just $1,308. Ummmm. Thanks, but no thanks.

 

Victoria's SecretYour best bet right now will be ordering one of the trio of corset belts offered for $45 apiece at Victoria's Secret. Not really feeling this look at low-cost, though.

How about you? Are you a fan of the corset belt trend for spring?

why not just use an actual corset?

I like the one on top, the main pic. The rest don't even look big enough to be considered "corset belts" in my opinion.

For me, personaly, I love them. I have round hips, and a decent size bust. The corset belts break up the monotony of a single color dress and accentuate/define my small waist line. I think they look incredibly sexy on the right figure

All it will do Is cause another rise of the muffin tops!

Nope. Who wants all that stuff bulging out above and below. Not a very springy style, either.

Maybe for the Renaissance Faire this summer.
