One of the major trends we saw coming down all of the spring 2020 runways was lingerie-inspired pieces. Designers like Helmut Lang, Mugler, Loewe, and Dion Lee all included pieces like garters, lace, and nightgown-like slips in their spring collections. One of the most exciting lingerie-inspired styles is the modern corset, and it’s set to be a major trend this spring. Both traditional corset and corset-inspired pieces will be everywhere in a few months and we’ve already started to see it popping up from various brands and on trend-setting fashion people.
While traditional corset tops will be a key trend, new modern takes on corsets are going to feature some of their key details like boning, structured seams, or hook-and-eye closures up the front. The key to making these corset-inspired pieces feel current is to pair them with something contemporary. High-waisted jeans that have a vintage feel would make a great daytime pairing, or a silk slip skirt and heels for an evening out. You could also try throwing a casual sweater over it for daytime to dress the corset top down a bit.

Once the spring 2020 collections finally hit stores in a few weeks, there will be plenty of corset-inspired options to choose from. But if you’re looking to get a jump start on spring shopping, brands like Dion Lee and Orseund Iris have beautiful corset styles available right now. You can also look to contemporary brands like LPA, V. Chapman, and Danielle Guizo for great options, and of course high-street retailers like Topshop and ASOS for pieces with a modern twist.
