There’s no doubt that the trend of wearing lingerie as outerwear is becoming more and more apparent – no longer do we have to hide our intimates under t-shirts and bulky knits, it’s actually now encouraged to show a hint of lingerie in our everyday outfits.
When buying a new bra we’ve all had those thoughts about the fact that the lingerie we’re looking at is so beautiful, but really, who’s going to see it?!
Is it worth investing in something that isn’t a prominent part of our wardrobe? The answer is yes, of course, because not only is the correct fit and quality of materials super important, it also makes your bra last longer.
And now we have the perfect excuse to incorporate these pieces as part of our fashion wardrobe, rather than hiding them!
Whether you prefer a subtle bralette underneath a blouse or rocking a bodysuit and skirt, there’s an easy way to incorporate lingerie into your outfit no matter what your preference.
At Paris Fashion Week, we saw a stylish bralette paired with an open shirt, a floral red number paired with a structured blazer, and even a simple Dior crop on show with a casual jacket draped around the shoulders.
No matter what your style, here are our 4 best tips for incorporating lingerie into your everyday wardrobe:
Bralette with Opaque Blouse
No doubt one of the simplest ways to tastefully display your lingerie in your outfit is to wear it underneath a sheer blouse. It’s not only stylish, but also adds elegance and sophistication to your everyday look!
We love this example of a simple black bralette underneath a sheer shimmer top. This outfit can easily be dressed up or down – pair it with jeans for a casual lunch look, or with black pants and heels for after work drinks.
Lace Camisole with a Blazer
Another easy way to make the most of your beautiful silk camisoles is to pair with a structured blazer for a polished, elegant look.
We love styling a black camisole with frayed jeans and a blazer for a more casual look, and swapping the jeans for a suit pant to take the look to the office.
When wearing this outfit to work we suggest avoiding plunging necklines and fabrics that are too lacy or sheer. Add in a piece of jewellery such as a silver pendant necklace or statement bangle to add extra flair.
Our Nocturne Silk Camisole is the perfect piece to take you from day to night!
T-Shirt Under a Slip
There’s no doubt that the 90’s are back again with the statement Slip Dress over a T-Shirt trend! We love that this is such an easy, effortless look to master and is a comfortable style that can be worn every single day.
Our ‘Dream’ Chemise is the perfect basic to have in your wardrobe and can be worn in any season. Pair it with a long-sleeved top, tights and boots for a stylish winter look, or a vintage t-shirt and sandals in summer.
Bodysuit and Skirt
There are so many stunning bodysuits available at the moment that are much too beautiful to be kept hidden!
If you’ve got a night out on the town coming up, a bodysuit is a great way to add a little glamour to your evening outfit. Pair with jeans for a more casual look, or with a skirt to dress it up.
Try our Elles Bodysuit in Black to keep you lifted & supported and to add beautiful lace detail to your outfit.
No matter what your preference, there is a lingerie styling option for you.
Our best tips? Use just a hint of lingerie rather than letting it dominate your entire outfit, wearing muted colours rather than bright to create subtlety, and of course, to consider your lingerie purchases as you would any other clothing items!
