Behold the body harness!

The body harness is a chic, silhouette-defining piece that has been making quite popular in the style scene. For a waist-whittling appeal, this multi-belted number can be worn over a baggy short dress or blouse.

Also, because it straps across half your body, STYLE suggests that it be paired with a long maxi dress to edge out the simplicity of the dress. It would also work over a body-con mini-dress; that is, if you are into very clingy outfits. The body harness, if properly worn, can be very sexy, yet chic.

The body harness trend also comes in the form of chain-like jewellery, which normally hangs around the neck and drapes across the waist or torso.
