Corsets are a hot vintage item and suit the upcoming Valentine’s Day season. Vintage is totally in right now, whether you’re rocking a truly vintage find or an inspired piece. No matter what the era, nostalgia always has a romantic flare to it and corsets are no exception. They can be flirty or feisty depending on how you wear them, and will suit just about anyone now that the most romantic holiday of the year is upon us.
Corsets are more versatile than most people may give them credit for. Depending on the type of corset, color, fabric, and even what it is worn with, this vintage item can be worn in so many ways and can be manipulated to meet any Valentine’s Day agenda. What initially comes to mind are outfits that may consist of nothing but a corset, and this of course is a great gift if you are planning on a special night of alone time with your Valentine. There’s a cut and color for every personality; there are dainty, light colored or floral print corsets for a fun and flirty date or there are more bold pieces featuring deep, sultry colors and lots of lace. But don’t go thinking that corsets are only to be worn behind closed doors. These classic romantic pieces can be worn with slimming jeans if your girl is more of a rocker chick, or can be worn over a long-sleeved shirt or even a basic tee for a more casual and comfortable look.
And corsets don’t just belong to the fashion territory of yesteryear. As certain vintage pieces re-enter the fashion scene, their initial styles are also reinterpreted to appeal to a more modern audience. While having a classic piece is always great, the look doesn’t suit everyone and perhaps doesn’t match everyone’s tastes. If you’re shopping for a more modern girl, there are modern options. A simpler, sleeker corset in perhaps leather, faux leather or other smooth material may be more her style, mixing classic with contemporary. These old-fashioned pieces can also be paired with a fitted blazer and slimming pant for a more modern feel, and are perfect for a date night to boot!
The possibilities are endless. Just like any fashion piece or accessory, there is bound to be one in style for just about everyone. No matter what her style or personal preference, the corset remains a romantic fashion icon, and makes the perfect gift for the passionate holiday season. Chicastic has a ton of beautiful corsets, so get her measurements and find her a lovely corset for Valentine’s day.
