Corsets are making a comeback and they’re more wearable than ever! The restrictive structure of corsets may make them seem uncomfortable to wear and hard to style, but they also famously help shape an hourglass figure by slimming the waist and emphasizing the hips and bust. Celebs and trendsetters, not to mention the Netflix series Bridgerton, have popularized the corset in various ways and convinced many to hop on the trend.
Try out the four sets in Fashion Menu for a taste of what it’s like to wear a Victorian-style corset – but with a modern twist!
Channel your inner bombshell with a silky corset top and faux leather bootcut pants.
To instantly create a gorgeous silhouette, contrast a silky corset top with a pair of black faux leather bootcut pants. This power duo achieves a slimming effect that’ll turn up the heat. Top off with a gray knit shrug if it gets chilly, and ground your look with chunky platform loafers, dainty earrings and a semi-circle crossbody bag.
Feel like a boss in head-to-toe black with a chic yet work-appropriate mesh corset top and straight-leg pants.
If you’re new to the corset trend, you can play it safe with a black mesh corset top since it’s the easiest way to take things up a notch. Team it with a sleek pair of straight-leg pants. To achieve the masculine-meets-feminine look, throw on an oversized blazer and a pair of velvety black heeled pumps for added edge. Throw in a bit of sparkle with a faux pearl choker and a clutch embellished with subtle silver details.
Spring into the season with a coordinated pastel outfit: a floral corset top plus baggy denim jeans that ooze Y2K vibes.
If you enjoy wearing pastel pieces, this set is for you! Embrace the spring look with a pastel green floral corset top, and replace your usual athleisure bottoms with a pair of white baggy jeans. Keep the palette consistent with a cropped knit cardigan and hair pins in a matching colorway. Finally, a versatile pair of white platform sneakers and a round knit crossbody bag complete the look!
Get ready for date night with a cute and daring off-shoulder blouse with a corset belt and light washed skinny jeans.
An off-shoulder blouse with a lace-up corset belt is a great take on the Victorian-era corset. Contrast the statement-making top with your favorite pair of light washed skinny jeans and white kitten-heel strappy sandals. Tip to easily amp up this casual date-night look: accessorize with a faux pearl necklace, a rhinestone alloy headband and a faux leather handbag.
