Fashion Editors Are OBSESSED With This Trend


Fashion editors have always been pros at interpreting the runway to real life. One particular trend is starting to break out this season: waist-whittling by way of corsets, bustiers or bralettes. A staple of centuries past, corsets (and their au courant counterparts) have recently become a fixture in wardrobes of the fashion set. Those in the know modernize the cinchers by layering them on top of oversized shirts, slim knits and dresses. Corseted dressing taps into the boudoir dressing phenomenon and wearable versions exist for everyone, whether you’re looking for a Renaissaince-style lace-up or a minimal bralette or a lingerie-inspired bustier. And while the trend does make a bit of a statement, simpler separates ensure the look reads cool instead of contrived. Here, 12 ways to ride the corseting wave for every budget, plus outfit inspo for carrying it off with ease.
