Corsets in the Spotlight: Celebrity Corset Styling Tips

Learn how to style your corset with these celebrity corset styling tips. With ideas from Gigi Hadid, Naomi Campbell, Jessica Alba and more...

While corsets might not be a mainstream everyday fashion item, for over 100 years they have been worn both as fashion statements and to create that desirable hourglass silhouette. Initially worn primarily as an undergarment, today the corset is boldly worn externally, to create an on-trend look with a vintage edge.

When it comes to inspiration for styling your corset, look no further than the celebrities that have proudly worn corsets in recent years…

Kim Kardashian

Known for her bold yet successful style choices, Kim Kardashian has been spotted wearing a corset on a number of occasions. Most famously, she teamed a corset with a pair of sweatpants for an off-duty look with a glamorous edge. Kim has also been seen wearing a cropped lace up corset over a plain t-shirt dress teamed with an oversized denim jacket.

For an off-duty look, try the Luxurious Victorian Inspired Dusky Pink Overbust Corset, worn with high waist jersey pull on trousers in grey or black. Team with simple white or black pumps for a comfortable look with a feminine finish.

Gigi Hadid

American model Gigi styled a simple black corset over a slogan t-shirt with skinny leather trousers and boots. Ideal for weekends in the city, this is a comfortable and stylish way to wear a corset during the day.

This indie inspired look calls for the Black Satin Longline Underbust Corset with Lace and Ribbon. The pretty details on this corset will add a feminine touch to your otherwise casual rocker look. Team with an off the shoulder black t-shirt and skinny jeans for the perfect weekend look.

Hailey Baldwin

Proving that corsets aren’t just for special occasions, model Hailey Baldwin was spotted with a strapless corset worn over a off the shoulder knit, finished with her hair in a ballerina style bun.

For a similar style, but without the need to layer a top under your corset, try the Pink Cotton Embroidery Anglaise Corset Top. This off the shoulder style can be dressed up or down. For day time style with skinny jeans and flat sandals, and for the evening pair with a pair of skinny leather trousers and heeled ankle boots. Corset tops are a great way to introduce corsets to your everyday wardrobe.

Naomi Campbell

Just like corsets can be worn for the everyday, they can of course also be worn for special occasions. British model Naomi Campbell has recently been photographed on the red carpet wearing a strapless corset over a beautiful maxi dress. The trick with this look is to match your corset to your dress by choosing the same shade. This will create an interesting and unique update on the classic maxi, without being too out there.

To achieve this look, try the Instant Shape Corsets, which are available in a variety of colours and styles to help you achieve the perfect stylish evening look.

Jessica Alba

Keeping things simple, Jessica Alba shows us another great way to wear a corset for evening wear. Seen wearing a dark teal strapless corset with high waist wide leg trousers, this classic look perfectly defines her silhouette.

To achieve this look, try the Navy Dark Victorian Cotton Overbust with Court Neckline style. Wear with high waist trousers over the top and team with simple heeled sandals and a clutch in black to complete the look. Alternatively go for a strapless corset in a colour and style of your choice.

As you can see from each celebrities style, corsets can be styled in a number of ways to create a unique and on-trend look. For super casual style and weekend looks, to special occasions, date night and cocktails with the girls, corsets provide a unique way to create on-trend and stylish looks.
