The Lingerie-Inspired (Yet Wearable) Dress Trend Megan Fox and J.Lo Both Love

Now that social activities are a thing again, going-out fashion has been booming. Corset tops started trending back in 2020 but truly had a big moment this past summer, so it should come as no surprise that corset dresses are now the next big lingerie-inspired trend to grace our feeds. Beloved by celebs like Megan Fox and Jennifer Lopez, the corset dress is pretty much the only thing we want to be wearing to our marathon of holiday parties this season. The best part of all? While they may sound kind of intimidating, they're actually super wearable, hugging the body in all the right places.

Here's the thing: Just because corset dresses are, well, corseted doesn't mean they always have to be over-the-top sexy, too. We stand by corset details for daytime—even for the office—and there are plenty of casual styles out there that nod to the trend. Think ribbed knits with boned bodices and shirtdresses with bustier seams that are flattering without being flashy.

We're more than ready to start wearing the trend ourselves, so we scoured the internet for the coolest corset dresses out there, both of the going-out and grandma-approved varieties. Keep reading to check out how our favorite celebs are styling them, and shop 23 of our favorites while you're at it.
