Spring 2021 Trends Part 1: Bralettes Corsets and Bustiers

Spring 2021 Trends Part 1: Bralettes Corsets and Bustiers

People are always so surprised when they find out something Katie or I are wearing is vintage.  For us, there can be no greater compliment! Though it is a challenge to stay runway current by only wearing vintage clothing, it's definitely not a difficult one! We love that wearing vintage is one of the easiest way to incorporate ethical fashion into your wardrobe and reduce your carbon footprint!

We would love to show you how to buy vintage pieces that will look as modern as those shown at fashion week! This week we are focusing on the tops that were so heavily featured on both the Spring and Fall 2021 runways!  From bustiers and corsets to bandeaus and bralettes, these statement tops were a part of almost every collection!

2021 Fashion Trends Corsets Bralettes Bustiers

If you aren't interested in wearing a cropped top, try to find a vintage piece that is in a bustier or corset style! You can wear these tops with or without a blouse underneath and pair them with dressy evening skirts or jeans!

If you are comfortable wearing a cropped top, there are hundreds of vintage options! You can wear a bralette under a jacket, wear one that fits like a bra shows off quite a bit of skin, or choose a midriff top that reveals just a sliver!

You can also use your imagination and wear a sheer slip,that gives the illusion of a corset, tucked in to a pair of pants or a skirt, or wear a swimsuit bra as a top! We also love the beautiful vintage 1930's silk bralettes that make great tops!

One of the most important values at Modig is fashion confidence. We love it when people embrace styles that are perfect for them, regardless of trend. But when you do want to wear something that fits right into today's styles, it's important to remember a couple of things.

1. Find the courage to say no to pushy sales people and opinionated friends, and only buy pieces that make you feel like you!

2. Buy only what you love and those things that make you feel happy! No matter how popular or on trend a style or color is, if you don't feel comfortable or enjoy wearing it, it will become a relic in your closet! 

Next week, we will be sharing examples of more fabulous vintage pieces that would fit on a modern 2021 runway!
