The cyclical nature of fashion trends means you can rely on pretty much every major fashion trend from the past to return at some point. We’ve seen the resurgence of flared trousers, claw clips, and even the dreaded low waisted jeans. Now it appears another trend has resurfaced, except this time it’s not from the 80’s or the 90’s, or even the 70’s… unless we’re talking the 1870’s, that is. The corset is back, and honestly we’re not mad about it. Here’s a look at some of the ways you can embrace the new (uh, old?) trend and make corsets a part of your closet.

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. In what seems to be following on from the 2020 underwear as outerwear trend, the classic corset is replacing tops and looks fab as it is when paired with a mini skirt or jeans.

Take inspo from Chloe Frater here who paired her Motel Rocks corset with a white shirt and black denim mini.

Most popular at the moment is the corset top, which isn’t so much a traditional corset as it doesn’t lace or hook up, but has a similar shape and looks just as good. Ellie’s strapless brown satin corset top from PrettyLittleThing.

Past, meet the future. Megan takes her outfit to the next level with a bold two piece, pairing a metallic green corset top with matching flared trousers, both from Mars The Label.

For something a little contemporary, channel Kim K and Bella Hadid by wearing a corset over a shirt or dress, like Missy did here. This Missguided satin corset top will do the job nicely!

The styling options truly are endless and we’ve got to admit, we’re praying it’s here to stay.
