Corsets have taken over the fashion world by a storm. Be it Hollywood queens Beyonce or Kim Kardashian, Bollywood style icons Ananya Panday and Kriti Sanon or someone closer to home like Sona Rafiq, the trend is here to stay.

Our first exposure to corsets was through classic Hollywood movies like Pride and Prejudice or Little Women, displaying a Victorian era of sorts where women were expected to wear corsets to meet certain beauty standards. However, now it’s more of a fashion statement than a pre determined measure of beauty.


Who would have thought that Corsets could be worn the way the way they are being adorned today, in the most bizarre, comfortable yet experimental manner.
Our first pick is this white corset paired with baggy black leather pants giving some serious Gen-Z vibes. Sona Rafiq is a trendsetter and we’re not surprised she hopped on this one as well.

Bollywood fashionistas have been rocking the trend as well. Kiara Advani opted to wear a corset dress for her debut appearance at Koffee with Karan. She lets the dress do the talking and keeps everything else understated from metallic pumps to effortless curled hair.

Ananya Panday gives matching separates a whole new definition in this bright green corset and trouser combination. This method of styling the corset is impactful, fresh and stunning! Ananya keeps her look simple with a sleek bun and pvc heels.

Kriti Sanon in this white on white look is a winner look. It’s edgy yet effortless. Trendy but not hard to recreate. Plus we love a good pair of sneakers!

Most designer brands from Prada to Ysl as well as retail favorites Zara, Mango and H&M have various options to hop on this trend. We love how this trend is dramatic yet the modern twist gives it an easy to wear vibe. The possibility to layer it up or dress it down allows for many ‘lewks’ with only one piece.

What do you think about it? Yay or Nay?
