Don’t we all just bookmark celebrity looks and clothes to upscale our fashion game? Surely, they add inspiration to our minds to experiment with something new. One of these trends from which our B-Town celebrities are obsessed is donning a ‘Corset’.
In the field of fashion, the relationship of corsets with women in fashion has not always been linear. It is probably considered as one of the most controversial piece in the history of fashion.
Why? There are two major reasons that can be stated as an answer.
First, this clothing piece gained momentum in the 16th century when women had to wear these waist-clinching belts on their ensembles to achieve that tiny waist illusion. They were painful and were nothing less to a torture device.
Second, they are regarded as a bedroom-appropriate piece which hasn’t usually gone well with the audience.
However, fashion trends are changing with time and corsets are seeing a revival and how! The modern-day corsets are not painful and come in effortless ready-to-wear styles. Also, this trend is a risqué extension of the “innerwear as outwear” trends, such as bralettes and slip dresses.
Unlike its past, this corset trend now also stands for empowerment, with women wearing it to show off or conceal their bodies on their own terms. And our leading ladies of Bollywood are certainly rocking this trend but in a more functional, and comfortable way.
This clothing piece is so versatile whether you chose to wear it for a girls’ night out or with your Indian wear, it will save your day!
To help you learn how to incorporate this bold and risky trend into your closets, we have shortlisted a few of our favourite corset looks of our B-town celebrities that you can definitely take inspiration from.
Bring In The Freshness With Floral Prints

We all love floral prints, don’t we? They add to an effortless look. Also, they are evergreen means they are always in trend no matter what the season is. So, it’s a safer choice.
Hoping on to the corset trend, our Gen-Z Diva, Janhvi Kapoor, opted for a black Lavish Alice corset patterned with roses for her film promotion. She brought in a relaxed vibe pairing it with light-wash high-waisted denim.
She accessorized the outfit with minimal rings and hoop earrings from Soni Sapphire adding bling to the ensemble. She then opted for a red lip stain and completed her look with flushed cheeks and wavy hair.
You can don this outfit for a romantic date night with your BAE. Take note!
Reverse The Layers

There can not be a fashion trend that doesn’t include our Mastani!
Deepika Padukone showed her experimental twist to the corset trend by reversing the layers. Isn’t that cool? She wore a classic white shirt by Jacquemus, which she cinched in place with a black Dolce and Gabbana corset (which looks lovely!).
She paired it up with a pair of mom jeans and also stacked plenty of gold accessories. And her statement heels deserve a special mention here! They made the outfit more harmonious. If you want to create an unusual look that is easy to carry, then this is your cue.
Add A Hint Of Sexy To Power-Dressing

Sonakshi Sinha gives us major boss lady vibes, don’t you agree?
She added a touch of sexy to power-dressing when she wore a white pantsuit, and underneath, to take the style quotient up a notch, she wore a fitted satin corset top with a sweetheart neckline.
With straight hair, she added layered necklaces and chunky finger rings to finish off the look. You can wear a corset just like Sonakshi’s oversized blazer to keep your look modest yet sexy.
Ditch Those Pants!

With reviving the corset trend, our Bollywood Divas are taking it up a notch by ditching the pants!
Shraddha Kapoor can rock any fashion trend by simply styling it in her own way. She turned her shirt into a dress and styled it with a white corset which accentuated her waist.
While, Kriti Sanon also opted for a similar look but she took the look to the next level by teaming it with a pair of black, thigh-high boots. The next time you step out with your girl squad for a night out, this look would be perfect.
Bring A Corset Tadka To Your Indian Wear

Not only actresses, but corsets are also becoming a silhouette of choice for celebrity designers who are known for their Indian wear.
Tara Sutaria has caught some eyeballs with her elegant fashion sense. To take this tradition forward, she wore a midnight blue corset paired with a delicate lehenga, both by Sabyasachi. Who thought something so simple could look so regal?
If you want to experiment with Indian wear then, we suggest you to pull out those lehengas and your favourite corsets to dial up the sexy quotient!
