Corsets are back and how! A fashion tradition of the 18th century, this waist-hugging belted piece has been a favorite among women mainly to create the illusion of a tiny waist and accentuate the curves. However fancy it may seem, the outfit was not comfortable at all, cinching the waist and stomach the whole time! Bringing back this trend to the modern days, the B-town ladies have incorporated celebrity corsets into their styling game.
Their take on this classic style is all functional, comfy and of course, uber-stylish. Here is a look at the contemporary celebrity corsets that are making a huge noise in the retro style scene of Bollywood.
Corsets As Outerwear is Trending
There are a hundred ways in which you could style your basic white shirt but we never would have imagined this! Alia Bhatt’s take on wearing corsets is modern and unconventional and we love how she has opted for a color that is hardly ever associated with this outfit.
Corsets As Outerwear But Make it Casual
Corsets are supposed to be outfits for plush parties and fancy dinners. But how to wear a corset casually? Deepika Padukone seems to have figured that out with her tiny black Jacquemus corset that she styled so playfully over a basic oversized white shirt.
Styling it with even more casual light-washed boyfriend jeans and trendy black heels, she created an effortless look out of a tight, rather uncomfortable outfit.
Plush Celebrity Corsets For a Girls’ Night Out
Janhvi Kapoor’s flawless white corset that can be easily passed off as a shirt is a classic example of how the celebs are welcoming the comeback of the corset with their own personal style. We love the plunging neckline and how she has added a casual touch to the glam with the distressed blue denim jeans.
Rollback your hair into a high ponytail and maybe you could wear this ensemble at work too? Finish off the look with trendy sandals and you are good to go for a fun night out after work.
Modern Celebrity Corsets in The Forever Trendy Blue Denim
The blue denim fabric is a classic and it is not going anywhere! It is fantastic to see how Esha Gupta has aced two trends with one look by styling a tight denim corset as outerwear over a long white shirt with trendy balloon sleeves. This is a welcome approach to styling celebrity corsets that is not the same white shade.
She has also successfully managed to incorporate the hot red boot trend of the season. Want to ditch the pants for your next night out? Why not get yourself a chic pair of bright red thigh-high boots and try this amazing look by the B-town star.
Dress Up Like a Goddess This Friday
Go invest in a gorgeous laced up classic corset this Friday and ace the trend like Disha Patani here. Hitting the sweet spot of this hot trend, the actress looks like a goddess of glamor in a sleeveless white corset that she paired up with skinny jeans, leather knee-high boots, and a tiny sling bag.
Looking forward to clubbing with friends? If this is not the perfect replacement for your usual little black dress, then what is?

Give it Up for Power Dressing in Celebrity Corsets
Silk corsets are not only way more comfortable but they can also make you look like a million dollars. Invest in a beautiful off-white silk corset and pair it up with high-rise khaki trousers just like Bhumi Pednekar here.
We love the wide belt at her waist and the statement overcoat. Wear this look to a board meeting and you are sure to turn some heads! Power dressing for women has evolved and come a long way. Why do not we give up suits and include these modern styles in the way we dress up for work?
The Easy And Breezy Corset Dress
White seems to be the color for the corset trend this season. Here is Kriti Sanon looking all easy and breezy in a blissful white corset dress that she paired up with suede knee-high black boots. The trendy dress looks all classy with its scalloped laces at the bottom, trendy balloon sleeves, and structured collars.
From ethnic corsets to dresses, we have seen it all! Bollywood has always been about everything extra and the celebrities are proving that to us time and again.
