Corsets have always felt like a good idea in theory, but never seemed to work in practice. And by “corsets” I of course mean shirts with a corset-like aesthetic — with lacing and bonding. Not the suffocating devices disguised as clothing of yesteryear. Wearing one out at night always felt like a brilliant idea, until it emerged that there’s not a single item to pair it with. Well I’m happy to announce that the corset is back, and in much more wearable iterations.
Below, some proof that corsets are cute — on shirts, boots, laced into a onesie and thrown on FKA Twigs (bless her soul) or even incorporated into a dress.
