Harness Trend

I have seen harnesses pop up in runway shows and stores like ASOS this season and I’m enthused about it. I feel like it’s not a conventional trend outside of fetishism. I know that sounded weird, sorry.

These harnesses come in a variety of colours, from neutral to pastel shades that have been dominating the spring runways. I can’t help but feel intrigued about this unusual accessory that adds so much more edge to an outfit.

The totally edgy harness pictured above is from Alexander Wang. Here are a few images, hopefully they can inspire you too:

If you are intimidated by the idea of wearing a leather harness around your torso area, there are other options too. There are delicate chain harnesses that resemble jewellery, harness bracelets, and even tops which have straps that mimic the “harness” look.
