Blouses, t-shirts, turtlenecks all have nothing on the trendiest shirt you can rock. Corset tops are all the rage these days. Given how many ways there are to style them, it’s physically difficult for me to not wear one constantly. Not like that’s a bad thing, though. The best thing about the corset top trend is that there are plenty of styles you can get for less than $50.

The modern love of corsets happened to popped up right around when Bridgerton first stepped onto the scene in 2021. Amidst the classical versions of Ariana Grande songs and the impossible-not-to-drool-over Regé-Jean Page, people fell in love with with the look of corsets. And, with Season 2 about to drop on March 25 (yes, I have it marked on my calendar), there’s no doubt in my mind there will somehow be even more of a resurgence of corset tops in no time.

Naturally, the current corset top trend doesn’t actually feature the intense and restrictive Regency-style corsets. You won’t need a lady’s maid to lace you up in order to wear one, either. Instead, the contemporary look features cropped, funky numbers that are easy to put on.

Oh, she does patterns. She’s feeling groovy and maybe a bit flirty with PrettyLittleThing’s Marble Print Corset ($48, PrettyLittleThing). The whirling, artful pattern is very psychedelic without being overwhelming. Pair this top with colorful wide-leg pants for a super cute happy hour look.

Chocolate brown is Gen Z’s latest favorite color to rock these days, and you can have a little peek-a-boo moment with Missguided’s Halterneck Corstet Top ($19, Missguided). As a larger-chested person, halter tops can really strain my neck, so the extra boning and structure available in this style let you rock the look without needing a brace at the end of the night.

With sunshine on the mind, pastels and tie dyes are back on the menu, and you can dive right back into it with Boohoo’s Corset Top ($40, Boohoo). If only this top was waterproof so you could take it to the beach.

If you want a neutral shirt you can pair with literally everything in your closet, Hollister’s Satin Corset ($25, Hollister) will become your favorite top of all time. You can dress it up or dress it down to fit your every plan and whim.

Boning is generally what gives a corset its structure, but this can sometimes feel a bit suffocating. For a more relaxed fit, Cider’s Summer Corset Top ($16, Cider) has the silhouette and look of a corset without being too tight or digging into your skin.

Of course, you can live out your completely Bridgerton fantasy by getting real flouncy with your corset. From the laces in the back to the ruffle, sheer sleeves, Loliuicca’s Floral Corset ($21, Walmart) has everything you need to become a diamond of the first water.

Oversized button downs and corsets have become a trend in and of themselves and Akira’s Lace Up Corset ($50, Akira) is the perfect fit. It takes your favorite pajamas or work shirt and immediately turns your look into a red hot going out ‘fit.

Now, all you need is the weather to comply with all your corset-filled daydreams, and we’d all be set.
