The underwear as outerwear trend is big right now. This style is quite risqué, says the Telegraph, so you’ll need to pull out all the stops to rock it right and LUXE Models explains how.
Embrace the 90s
This is a 90s trend, so think about embracing 90s styles to really nail it down. You could follow the recent example set by the Kardashian-Jenners and team a sleek black slip dress with a white t-shirt to cultivate an exciting look. Or go all out and channel Kate Moss circa the mid-1990s and wear a slip with platform sandals or chunky boots to really make this style work for you.
Dress down in the day
Maybe tone things down if want to try the underwear as outerwear thing in the daytime. Think about teaming risqué yet subtle pieces like slips dresses, silk camisoles and body suits with tailored blazers, sensible heels, sheer shirts, pencil skirts and light makeup. By following this approach, you’ll be able to look fun yet professional at the same time, ensuring you make a splash in the boardroom!
Glam up in the evening
This trend was practically made for a night on town, so try glamming up for the evening. Here you might want to think about adding bolder pieces like statement jewellery, stiletto heels, leather jackets etc. to ensure you make the underwear as outerwear trend work for the evening.
You could always follow In Style’s advice and try something really daring like wearing a black statement bra, sans top, with an all-black ensemble like high-waisted trousers or a tailored blazer!
Show just a little
For the more conservative among you, nail this trend without going too far by showing just a little. You might want to team a black statement bra with a mostly-buttoned white shirt to show just enough to make this trend work, while looking cool and relaxed.
Silk camisoles, triangle bras and lace shirts are also good options if you want to try this trend without pushing the boundaries too much.
Work with colour
Speaking to Vogue magazine Jennifer Zuccarini, the founder of ready-to-wear brand Fleur du Mall, says: “We’ve gone through so many years of nude smooth seamless everything that’s never meant to be seen, it’s fun to incorporate lingerie into your wardrobe that’s meant to be shown… It looks so much better to see a slip of something bright or printed or lacy, rather than this stretch of nude microfiber.”
Working with colour can really help you make the most of this bold style!
Have some fun
Most importantly, have some fun when donning underwear as outerwear. Considering how bold this style is, you might want to experiment with different tops, trousers, skirts, makeup styles and shoes to find out what works best.
As always, confidence is key, if you don’t feel as though you look a million dollars when rocking underwear as outerwear, you’ll never have the attitude needed to pull off this exciting trend!
