The waist is the new cleavage.

*Warning* this post contains the use of the word “tits” a lot, so if you’re easily offended by a body part that half the world’s population have and that you nibbled on as a newborn then you probs shouldn’t read this.

Say goodbye to the girls for a bit because cleavage is out and waists are in. Shove your bras that make your tits look 2 cups bigger, by smushing them together and hoisting them so high you could just choke on a nipple, to the back of your bra drawer (but don’t throw them away, they come in handy every once in a while…promotion time *cough*). The small-titted of us can rejoice *rejoices* and for those of you with big ol’ fake tits that remind us of a star, we all love them and you probs won’t put them away anyway so…

Two pieces are a huge thing right now, with many an online retailer centering their stock around them, e.g. House of CB. The rise of waist exposure isn’t even a skinny girl thing, you can expose as little or as much as you’d like (though too much is more red light district than runway), or you can even hop on the trend without getting your waist out at all. E.g. A very high sitting body con skirt with an un-fitted cropped tee over the top – it’s the no-waist waist look.

So you’ve decided you want to be super fashionable and execute the trend, but in a So Versailles way. Follow the steps below and you’ll smash it.
