The Body Part Everyone Will Highlight This Fall

This summer has been consumed by the bare shoulder. Women across the style spectrum have embraced the flattering, versatile trend, and with good reason (who doesn’t love showing off a little collarbone?). However, as we shift gears into fall, we’re starting to wonder what the next body part du jour will be, and if the F/W 16 catwalks are any indication, it’s the waist.

Countless brands debuted abdomen-accentuating pieces like bustiers and corset-style belts (or just plain corsets). Sound antiquated? Not in the slightest. Thanks to the designers behind labels like Loewe, Prada, and Alexander McQueen, we have loads of inspiration on how to make this look feel appropriate for 2016 and beyond. Also, a few street style favorites (ahem, Taylor Tomasi Hill) have tested out the trend, and we’re already obsessed.

From a strapless metallic version layered atop a creamy white dress to a black lace-up corset worn over a crisp button-down, see below for fashion-forward ways to show off your waist this fall.
