Outside of the bedroom, bustiers can actually be really chic.

Amy Schumer gave us a lot to think about the other day when she wore one as a top. Tucked into a pair of wide-leg trousers, the comedian properly executed an uber-elegant way of pulling off the look. Thanks to Amy, corsets are no longer unmentionables.

It's important to know what to pair with the piece because you can absolutely look too sexy when it comes to a top like this. Depending on the occasion (Halloween is a prime example), that might be what you're going for, but for everyday wear tone down it's naturally seductive nature with the below style tips.

Always Tuck It In: If your corset has a stretchy, rubber fabric around the hem of it that means it's meant to be hidden. Take after Amy and tuck yours into some trousers—maybe even a leather midi skirt.

Pair It With Something Menswear-Inspired: If it's a little too much skin for you, especially in the daytime, throw a blazer over top of the whole outfit. You can never go wrong with that kind of coverage.

Heels Are Optional: Of course in the actress' case she's wore heels (she was enroute to a talk show), but if you're really wanting to play down the sultry wear some sneakers with your look.
