White Corset Costume Ideas
Whether you’re a seasoned corset wearer or are just getting into the trend, there are a lot of ways to style this sexy piece. From a white corset top with a pair of denim jeans to an elegant evening ensemble, we’ve rounded up some of the best ways to rock this waist-defining staple.
Layers are always chic, so consider pairing your corset with a fitted jacket or shirt. A white lace corset over a black button-down is a perfect way to add a touch of edgy to a casual daytime outfit or a sultry look for date night. Or opt for a cropped corset top over a dress to achieve an edgy midi silhouette.
A lace corset can also be styled over a skirt or pants, like the one Kerry Washington donned for the 2021 Emmy Awards. The actress wore a corset dress with a black beret, a red lip, and diamond jewelry for a glamorous look.
As vintage shapewear: For a more authentic Victorian look, style a cotton, silk, or satin corset under a vintage dress to smooth out the silhouette and tighten the waist without creating creases or lines. A lace corset with a vintage-style dress is a great option for a 1920s or 1930s look, but it can also be paired with a modern dress for a modern twist on a retro style.
If you want to go a more casual route, try pairing a short lace corset with mom jeans for a laid-back outfit that’s still incredibly chic. Lace up boots, a tee, and a denim jacket give this ensemble the right amount of edge while still keeping the look casual enough for weekend adventures or a day out with your family.
For a more formal look, a corset can be paired with a lace or mesh skirt for a sleek and stylish ensemble. A lace corset with a midi skirt is ideal for a date night or a black corset with a slinky midi skirt is an elegant yet edgy choice for a special event.
To complete the outfit, a pair of leather pants can add a touch of edgy sexiness to the look. Fashion’s biggest “must-have” at the moment, leather pants are an easy way to make your corset look a bit more fashion-forward.
Halloween costumes with corsets are a bold and powerful style move, so consider incorporating this sexy staple into your next costume this season. Here are a few stylish Halloween ideas with corsets for your outfit:
Anna Wintour and Olivia Newton-John costumes
If you’re looking for a costume that doesn’t take a lot of time to put together, consider this Anna Wintour costume idea. A simple tweed dress and a blunt bob wig can pull this look off. Just remember to curl your hair and wear a lot of makeup, and you’re good to go!
Another costume that requires little to no preparation is a cottagecore look, which can be achieved with an asymmetrical dress and a straw hat. A pair of red slippers and a silver-colored ensemble can round out the look perfectly.
