How to style a corset top

Corset top

Season by season, we see more and more items of clothing that are essentially underwear worn as outerwear. From bralets to slip dresses and even garter belts, the lingerie trend isn’t going anywhere. Corset tops are no exception and they offer an easy way to work some sophisticated structure into your every day wardrobe.

We were all expecting 2020 to be the year of the corset, but when the pandemic hit, fashion was altered. We swapped our jeans and nice top for hoodies, joggers or no pants at all. It seems that the corsets have skipped a year and are guaranteed to be a feed favourite for 2021.

Despite our lack of parties, pub trips and nights out, the fashion girl has still managed to embrace the corset trend and show us how it is done. It only takes a 5 minute scroll on insta or 2 minutes on your TikTok For You page, to see girls wearing structured bustiers with jeans, layering corsets over shirts and endless hauls of tiny tops to style with big trousers Discover what to wear with a corset top and how to work the trend into your 2021 wardrobe.
