A corset has long since evolved from its initial archaic function. Originally created in the 16th century, this body-restricting garment was meant to cinch a woman’s waist for a more streamlined and tinier silhouette. Fast forward to today, this piece has been reimagined into something resembling less of a torture device and more of a chic closet staple.
Corset tops now still offer that figure-shaping feature that we know, but we love them more for their structured boned bodice that can instantly give any outfit a polished yet sultry look. Not only that, these tops come in a plethora of styles to suit whatever you fancy! May it be a laidback or dressy aesthetic, you can count on a trusty corset to give your ensemble that flair you didn’t know it needed.
Below we listed down several OOTDs we’ve seen on local influencers featuring this all-around piece to give you ideas on how to style it. Keep on scrolling!

If you're looking for a fail-proof outfit combos, then you can never go wrong with an oversized blazer and baggy pants! As seen here on Angelique, the form-fitting silhouette of her corset top was balanced out by the boxy silhouette of her outerwear piece and the loose cut of her bottoms.

2. Leather Corset Top + Denim Jeans + Sneakers + Handbag
Take style cues from Rhea and don’t be afraid to team different textures together. Here, the influencer was spotted partnering her brown leather corset top with a pair of light-wash denim jeans.

Donning print-on-print might be a tad daunting, but you can easily dodge a fashion faux pas by coupling a busy print with something in a solid color. Case in point: Aika who balanced out her orange corset top’s playful pattern with a pair of black denim bottoms.

If you’re leaning towards a more feminine aesthetic, then we suggest trying out a silk corset top! Not only is it incredibly elegant, it’s also a versatile piece that you can style in several ways.

A white crop top is an essential in anyone’s wardrobe but in 2022, we can count a white corset as a closet staple, too.

As seen on Ashley, her outfit comprising of a white corset top was given an added flair thanks to her pinstripe trousers.
