It’s true what they say, everything at some point comes back in style, whether it’s fringe hairstyles, 2000s fashion trends, or moon boots. Younger generations rediscover the styles of the past and whether we like it or not, fashion always comes full circle. That leads us on to the latest garment we’re seeing everywhere, Corsets, and in particular the celeb-approved corset brand, Maiou.

We probably have Bridgerton to thank for our sudden love for regency fashion pieces, leading to an actual trend called ‘Regencycore', which includes long gloves, pearls, and of course corsets.  

Corsets really are everywhere right now, and while you can find them in pretty much every color and at every retailer, there’s one brand in particular that really knows how to serve looks. 

 What is Miaou? 

Miaou is a womenswear brand founded by designer Alexa Elkaim which quickly reached viral, cult status among fashion lovers and celebs alike, thanks to its ‘retro-romantic vibe.’

Everyone from Hailey Bieber to Paloma Elsesser is wearing Miaou’s statement corsets right now. Even Maddy (Alexa Demie) wore one of their offerings in Euphoria! And while we know ‘corsets’ might seem a little scary, we’re here to assure you that they’re actually very wearable.

While they used to be seen as underwear, or a way to crush women’s ribs to create a tiny waist, now they are made to fit you—not that other way around—and can be a sexy and empowering item of clothing.

Thanks to Miaou, you can find every style from dramatic leather to edgy monochrome, even floral—which is perfect for spring might we add. 

The best thing about these corsets is their versatility, you can either go full glam, by pairing them with mini or midi skirts, or dress them down with jeans or leather trousers. As we see here on Hailey B and Kylie Jenner...

LEIA CORSET,  $265 £‌265 | Miaou

As seen on Kylie, which she paired with a low-key pair of matching leather trousers. We're a fan!

Or like Julia Fox, rock a matching set. Whatever your style, these corsets will cut a seriously flattering silhouette.

MARA CORSET, $295£‌295 | Miaou

This is the green version of the top Hailey Bieber wears above, and the exact match to Julia Fox's. It's giving serious Pam Anderson vibes.

FIG SKIRT, $175£‌175 | Miaou

As if we weren't going to link the matching skirt too! You can now fully complete Julia Fox's iconic leather look, you're welcome.

Or bring the Bridgerton vibes, and opt for pastel, summery prints like Paloma Elsesser...

IMOGENE CORSET, $245 £245 | Miaou

As seen in Paloma in the second picture above, this top will make you feel like royalty. 

As if all of this wasn’t very tempting enough, Miaou has just announced an exclusive collaboration with Urban Outfitters!

This collab is perfect if you love Miaou's corsets but they're a little out of your price range.

At UO, you can find everything from matching sets to dresses all for a fraction of the brand's usual price point!
