If you’ve followed me for any time at all, you have probably picked up that I have an eye for the edgier pieces of clothing. I absolutely LOVE taking something unique or a bit out there and trying to figure out how to make it wearable (at least enough for me).
Harnesses are a fun trend that have come in and out the past year or so and I love what they do for an outfit. I particularly like pairing them with something less expected – something feminine that will help soften the harsher elements of the accessory.
When I first wore this, I chose a more feminine dress like the one pictured above and I was met with surprise from a friend who had thought you could really only wear a look like this with something like a t-shirt. It’s true that you can, and that’s one great way to wear them, but it surprisingly enough isn’t the only way a piece like this works.
The most important thing to remember is the neckline – the fuller your bust, the higher you want it to be to avoid treading into bondage territory (unless that’s your thing in which case you go for it girl). The other thing that helps is going for a fitted style so the harness doesn’t bunch or pull on the top. Lastly, I would try to pair with something soft and feminine as mentioned above to keep from going overboard on the look!
It’s fun to wear something unexpected, especially if you know you have the confidence to pull it off!
