The Corset Sweater Is the Knitwear Trend You Never Saw Coming
Classic, chic, and undeniably comfortable, there's a reason why knitwear is a wardrobe staple for all seasons and occasions. And in terms of the burgeoning corset sweater trend that fashion editors and influencers can't seem to get enough of, it can even be a little daring, too. A cross between a corset and a form-fitting sweater, the corset sweater is the fashion-meets-comfort combo item we didn't know we needed as the world begins to open up again.
Though seemingly out of left field, the popularity of the corset sweater doesn't come as a total surprise when you think about it. Super-sexy pieces from Mugler's recent collection have made their way onto celebs including Bella Hadid and Hunter Schafer, while Gigi Hadid and Megan Fox have both sported Dion Lee's fresh takes on corset-inspired styles. It makes sense, then, that more and more fashion girls are jumping on the bandwagon.
We'll be totally honest, "corset" and "sweater" aren't exactly words that we ever anticipated saying together, but rest assured, you don't have to be the most daring dresser to attempt the look. From pared-down minimal versions to avant-garde designs, there's actually something for everyone here.
