Underwear As Outerwear: The Lingerie Trend
Whether you love it or loathe it, the underwear as outerwear trend is extremely popular, especially amongst celebrities.
If you want to try this trend at home without getting any weird looks, try some of the following outfit ideas.
Pair a silky, satin dress with a casual piece of clothing such as a denim jacket. Not only does it help to balance out the entire outfit, but the colours look pretty cool!
Arm candy is optional, however it always helps to spice-up any outfit.
Play with texture
Keeping in the same colour palette is always a safe choice, especially if your bodice is inspired by lingerie. Ashlee Simpson kept this outfit looking demure at a recent event, even though she’s completely wearing black.
The texture of the bodice isn’t too overwhelming and works within the frameworks of the entire outfit.
Keep your entire outfit balanced out by showing off a sexy lace bra with a chiffon shirt. For some, this look might seem a little too risqué, but it works perfectly on an evening out for drinks.
Pair with trousers
A top which shows a bit too much skin looks best when paired with some skinny or boyfriend-fitting trousers. Daisy Lowe shows us how to rock this style with a skinny belt and court heels.
Dress it down
Since anything with lace or satin material can make an outfit a little too dressy, why not pair them with casual pieces? This bright pink cardigan makes for a perfect day to night outfit with lace-up heels and a mini tote bag.
Pairing a statement crop top with other basic items is also another way to try this trend. It shows some skin without going overboard and can also be worn during the day with a denim or flannel shirt tied at the waist.
DON’T: Forget your pants
This outfit by Taylor Momsen might work if she’s performing onstage, but it won’t get you on the best dressed list. Wear a longer skirt and keep some mystery to your outfit!
Use statement accessories
Your outfit should already be making the statement for you, therefore any flashy shoes, bags, and jewellery is strictly a no-no.
As with many other trends, you need to go into the store and try the clothing on. Buying online doesn’t guarantee that you will always find your size – clothing that is too big or too small is less than flattering for your personal body.
