The corset has cinched the waists of ladies since the 16th century, but thankfully we're way past being tightly tied in every day. Now we can look to corset tops inspired by the traditional trend, and with the catwalk's love for lingerie as outerwear going strong, now is the time to find some corseted inspiration.
Seductive corset tops
If you're looking to add some drama to your underwear collection, corset tops are a sure fire way of introducing some sultry appeal. With boned bodices and built in bras, the corset top offers instant body confidence, hugging you in all the right places. Create that coveted hourglass in a shapewear corset top, pair it with suspender tights to complete the slender silhouette. White lingerie is perfect for brides but also gives that ethereal effect to your everyday attire; team a white top with lace French knickers for some soft seduction. Black is a classic colour for corsets. Mix and match yours with patterned tights and coloured knickers to introduce some fun, or stick to all black for guaranteed sophistication.
Cropped corset tops
As the outdoor lingerie trend seeps into our everyday wardrobes, find some inspiration in lingerie details and subtle design nods to underwear. Cropped corset tops are the simplest way of incorporating this trend. Wear yours with high waisted jeans and a boyfriend blazer for cool sophistication, or team it with some paperbag waist shorts for a high fashion feel that's all the rage this season. Lace details give the perfect dose of subtle sexiness, choose a corset top with scalloped edges or lace panels to wear under a waterfall cardigan and tailored jogging bottoms for a sophisticated look.
