The fine line between underwear and outwear is growing thinner and thinner.
Slip dresses, silky camisoles and even long-line robe dusters are among the bedroom-to-street trends that it seamlessly going from strength to strength. Whether it be pyjama-inspired pocket details on a shirt or lingerie-like designs, the fine line between underwear and outwear is growing thinner and thinner.
This season, however, we’re taking even more inspiration from our underwear drawer as there's a new item that was once reserved for the bedroom making it's way out to the street: the corset. Once thought to be too constricting to wear, corsets are experiencing a visible high-fashion resurgence, by way of Prada, Tibi, Gucci and Moschino.
Whereas other lingerie-inspired pieces feel slouchy and pyjama-like—or, in the case of slinky slip dresses, veritably tricky to style—corset bodices feel feminine and quintessentially appropriate for spring and summer. Oh, and they'll go perfectly with your jeans.
And to those of you who think the corset top trend sounds dauntingly unwearable or even downright inappropriate to wear outdoors, fret not—the corset bodices on the high street right now are far from what you might find in a lingerie drawer. Pair with jeans and a strappy sandal for a cute out-out look or wear over an oversized white shirt or dress for a more high fashion feel.
Ahead, 16 of the best corset tops the high street has to offer so you can nail the corset top trend.
