Ready or not, corsets are back. The controversial undergarment has been enjoying a cool-girl resurgence as of late thanks to a few stylish celebs who have been sporting the underwear as outerwear. First, Bella Hadid wore a pretty corset for an ice cream date with The Weeknd. Then, Amal Clooney made a sheer corset dress look devastatingly elegant. Now, everyone from Elle Fanning to Hailey Bieber is embracing the trend.
To gain inspiration on how to style the iconic piece of lingerie as streetwear, we turned to none other than It girls like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Whether they're layering a sheer corset under an oversize blazer or donning a lace-up corset over a sundress, these celebs are convincing us to wear our lingerie outside the bedroom, one stylish look at a time. Keep scrolling to see how these celebs style corsets in the chicest possible ways.
On Elle Fanning: Alexander McQueen corset
Style Notes: Take style notes from Elle Fanning and juxtapose a leather corset with a demure white midi dress and a pair of understated Mary Janes.
On Hailey Bieber: Mugler blazer; Cotton Citizen jeans; Ash Doll boots; Versace bag
Style Notes: Don a sheer corset with an oversize blazer, high-waisted jeans, and ankle boots for a casual look, as Hailey Bieber does here.
On Bella Hadid: Roberi & Fraud sunglasses; Cinq à Sept bell-bottoms
Style Notes: A white button-down shirt and a corset may not seem like an obvious combination, but together they look surprisingly chic.
On Kendall Jenner: Opening Ceremony dress; Gucci sunglasses; Fendi bag
Style Notes: Rather than cinching a lace-up corset tightly, let it provocatively hang just below the bust à la Kendall Jenner.
On Gigi Hadid: H&M bustier top; J Brand skinny jeans
Style Notes: Layer a corset over an oversize band tee and leather skinny jeans for an effortless, cool-girl ensemble.
