Cue: Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite accessory, the cool-girl corsage. This year, fashion has seen the resurrection of romantic details. We’re talking velvet and silk fabrics, oversized corsages and bows, styled alongside ballet flats and court heels.
From Sydney Sweeney at the Venice Film Festival to Claudia Winkleman on Strictly Come Dancing, the floral embellishments have been spotted all over the fashion map.
4 ways to wear a corsage
Lucky for us, a corsage is as classic as they come. Tap into the timeless trend with these pieces…
1. Small and subtle
2. Go bold with a beautiful blouse
For days in the office with after-work plans, these blouses are a must. Copy Claudia Winkleman’s look on Strictly with our white satin shirted blouse, embrace 70s charm with our flared sleeve Cece blouse, or if you’re feeling romantic Cali’s drapey fabric is just irresistible.
Pair with a midi skirt or black trousers and you’re set.
>3. Dress dramatic
For big events, go all-out with a big, bold corsage. We love this elegant take on a classic LBD with a big ruffled, cascading corsage, while this black dress gives the corsage trend a gothic-romance edge.
Not sure what to wear with such a statement dress? Keep the accessories simple – a sleek clutch, simple sandals and a cape for added sass.
4. Upgrade your knitwear game
Throw on with a pair of leather trousers, a wool coat and you’re good to go.
