Bustier tops and corsets have traditionally been kept hidden under clothes or reserved for the bedroom. But this season, corset tops and bustiers are coming out of the lingerie closet as the finishing touch to a chic outfit. You can credit the Prada Fall 2016 show for helping to popularize the trend by sending white corset belts down the runway, but we’ve also seen the look at Fenty x Puma by Rihanna and Balmain. Currently taking over street style, bustier tops of all shapes and sizes are being paired with everything from oversized white shirts to coordinating suit jackets. Surprisingly, it all works.
A white shirt is something that people say you can wear with literally everything and this outfit proves how accurate that statement is. Style an oversized white shirt with your equally versatile jeans and add a corset top. Mega platform boots and panda bag optional.
If you want to try the bustier-as-outerwear trend, you probably want to really showcase the look, so choose a corset in a contrasting shade as your top. Tie everything together by wearing a pair of printed pants that have the same two shades.
Add some edge to a floral dress by layering on a black bustier top. A pair of coordinating over-the-knee boots will tie everything together.
The Prada Fall 2016 runway proved that corsets can go over everything, including your coat. Undo the laces of your corset, then layer it over your coat. Add a belt on top because why not?
