Channel your inner glam girl at the next party you attend by donning a corset top. Our model for the day, actress Koushani Mukherjee looked jaw-dropping as she went the colour-blocking way in semi-formal lavender pants teamed with a satin lime yellow corset top that accentuates her narrow waist. Side-swept wavy hair, pop lip, blushed cheeks, and a touch of gold with accessories add to the glam quotient.

If corset top is not your style, you can still work the trend like Koushani did with a flowy corset dress from Saiko Studio. We love the fall colours and the flowy soft fabric of the corset that doesn’t bite into your skin. Pop matchy orange eyes, a messy braid and jewellery from Michelle Alexander completed her day look!


Have a cocktail party to attend? How about this stunning corset gown from label December?! Intricately embroidered with sequins and patches, a corset gown is a great option to achieve that hour-glass figure. Koushani looked like a dream in the outfit with a sleek gelled-back hairdo, bold eyes, nude lips, broad brows and blushed cheeks. To add a bit of contrast we paired the look with emerald green earrings from Sara jewellery.

This white corset-blue denim look is a uber cool version of the classic white shirt-and-jeans look. If your fashion taste is minimal, we bet this combo won’t disappoint you. Koushani slipped into this stylish corset from Miakee and high-waist rolled-up jeans from H&M. Her look was completed with stunning layered jewellery from Michelle Alexander.

Give a desi twist to the corset by pairing it with a sari. Being a versatile piece, we styled this sequinned corset from SoignéAndTheCity with a stunning pink organza sari with delicate feather detailing. We gave Koushani a neat gelled top-knot that was complemented by jewellery from Sara and a glamorous make-up (think metallic bold eyes, glossy lips and highlighted cheeks!) Phew, too much hotness!

Tips to work the trend:

1. Corsets are trending! You can wear them in dresses, or style them with pants or skirts.

2. Choose the right corset according to your body type. They give the perfect shape if you opt according to your waist and bust cup size. It enhances your curves. A wrong size is a big no!

3. Corset belts are great options too!

4. Corsets are great with high heels and thigh-high boots.

5. Opt for multiple layering around your neck in terms of accessories.
