As we all know, fashion trends come and go and one piece that has made a return this Spring is the corset. This classic item, which was used in the 19th century by women to further exaggerate silhouettes, has made a come-back and we’re totally feeling it!

Today’s corsets are versatile and aren’t as oppressive to the body, they can still give you an exaggerated figure or just take your outfit from plain to super stylish with minimal effort.

Let's take a look at 4 ways you can rock this hot trend:

Wear it with: a puff sleeve top

Wear it with: sweatpants

Sweatpants have become an all-year-round fashion staple and pairing your sweatpants with a matching corset top - like influencer @Thabee_happy did here - will give you an effortlessly-chic look.
