The corset trend has been cycling through women’s closets since the 1500s – either as an undergarment, a lingerie item, or as a fashion statement beneath a chic jacket. However, the new way to wear a corset is surprising, given its strong associations with boudoir dressing. Since 2014, designers have been pushing the corset-over-clothes look, but it is only in 2016 that this trend seized hold among fashion girls and celebrities worldwide.

Some say we have the Kardashian clan to thank for that. However, there are many other fashion icons – Taylor Tomasi Hill and Susie Bubble included – making the case for the corset trend as a chic, sophisticated styling option. While Fall/Winter 2016 made for strong representation of the corset trend, Savoir Flair‘s Fashion Editor, Camille Macawili has compiled plenty of evidence that the corset trend is going to be huge in 2017 as well.

That means you can rock the corset at the office (true story), while simultaneously enjoying its flattering, silhouette-shaping benefits. Fashionable corsets that are meant to be worn over clothes come with plenty of decorative bells and whistles, but as the trend is still catching on, shopping destinations are still peddling versions that are very similar to lingerie. If you want to try the corset trend over your workwear, we recommend a chic leather version or one that is colorfully embroidered.
