I’m just going to call it, before everyone else does… the corset will be making a comeback in a big way, and I. can’t. wait. After scouring the internet looking for the perfect one (in velvet of course) I’m so excited to layer it with my new autumn pieces. Love the decadent accessory but stuck for ideas on how to style it? Here are some runway and celeb ensembles to convince you it’s worth investing this season.
With Your Eveningwear
Adding dark Victoriana to feminine silhouettes, try a leather-look piece teamed with your floaty evening dress for a decadent feel.
With Your Loungewear
Relaxed shapes needn’t be slouchy, as demonstrated by Kim Kardashian’s effortless street style. Who else would triumph style-wise when it comes to teaming an oversized kimono-bomber and cycle shorts with a button-up corset?!
With Your Denim
Bella Hadid nails the 90s with a cap and double denim ensemble, adding an ode to the 18th and 19th centuries with an underwire corset-style top in bubblegum pink.
With Your Cold Weather Layers
What better way to keep the structure in your knitwear than adding a black lace corset. Keep it to the outside layer for a more casual feel, and finish with a peacoat on the shoulders for that understated look.
With Your Tee
The corset really is your new contemporary layer, and if you’re over layering your crop top over a shirt, it’s the perfect way to give your favourite tee a luxe uplift. Make like Kim Kardashian and pick up a t-shirt dress, wrapping a leather-look piece around your ribs for a clinched look.
With Your Structured Workwear
Okay so maybe I’m clutching at straws here when I’m talking workwear, but I can definitely imagine Gigi Hadid wearing this stunning piece to a meeting. Liquorice-lined with flare waist detail, this monochrome ensemble is a structured look that exudes new season appeal.
With Your Tonal Look
If there’s any star championing the return of the corset, it’s Riri. On and off stage, she’s been seen in a number of waist-clinching pieces and this tonal look is one of my favourites.
