Use a state­ment leather corset belt when opt­ing for a strong, struc­tured look

Nida Mah­mood, de­signer

Bol­ly­wood’s favourite fash­ion­istas are crank­ing up their style by cinch­ing their waists in stylish ways. From corset belts worn over dresses to sash-style picks in­pired by the Ja­panese Obi belt — celebs are lov­ing their state­ment belts.

The latest to sport the style has been ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra, who wore one for her ap­pearence on an Amer­i­can talk show. “The corset belt in black leather goes per­fectly with her ac­tor-cum-mu­sic star im­age. The corset clinches her waist­line and gives her cuves great shape and def­i­ni­tion — the per­fect mix of ca­sual and rock chic,” says de­signer Nikhil Mehra. De­signer Anand Bhushan also gives her look a thumbs up. “Love the leather corset belt on her, and the style is al­ways su­per hot if worn the right way, keep­ing in mind body pro­por­tions. Priyanka has the small­est of waists, and the belt def­i­nitely works for her,” he says. Ac­tor Athiya Shetty in an Obi-style flo­ral belt and Malaika Arora Khan in a cinch­ing leather belt have also joined the trend­wagon. Won­der­ing how to style it? “Use a state­ment corset belt to cre­ate a strong, struc­tured look. Pair with palazzo pants or a skirt with a well-de­fined sil­hou­ette,” says de­signer Nida Mah­mood.
