5 Ways to Perfect the Lingerie as Outerwear Trend

image1Someway along the line, in between floral dresses and white sneakers; elaborate lace and pussy bow blouses, the lingerie trend made its way onto the streets and became the ultimate choice when it comes to bold trends.

Donning lingerie as outerwear is a tricky trend as there is a fine line between channeling haute couture like style to looking like you forgot to put on real clothes. Materials have to be mixed, colors need to be considered and overall, you should think hard about which part of your body you want to highlight with this attention seeking trend.

Still, even with all of these matters, fashion is still fun and if you love the trend you should definitely consider ways of incorporating lingerie to your everyday look and the following are five tips to help you master this bold trend.

For a twist to a classic, go sheer by investing in a peak-a-boo blouse. Pair the piece with a bra of the same color so that you keep the look subtle and sophisticated

The Silky Soft Side

When a silk camisole steals your heart and you want to wear it as any old dress then pairing it with a soft chunky knit is a great way of adding texture to such a delicate piece. Find a camisole that is not too short or too tight so you can still look appropriate rocking it as outerwear.

Nothing says lingerie more than a corset. This bold style piece has been around for centuries — tightening our waists and giving us the cleavage we are looking for. To keep the corset looking timeless and elegant, pair the piece with a great jacket — preferably one that is tailored or has a bold pattern to add to the glamour of the corset.

Side Peakimage4

If you love the lingerie as outerwear trend but you are hesitant in showing off too much, then the side peak is the perfect way to go. Find a simple white sl

eeveless T with a wide arm and pair it with a black lace bra and let your lingerie peak through the sides every once in a while.


Rock The Granny Panties

On the other hand, if you are as bold as Kim Kardashian, then try rocking granny panties with a sheer skirt. Find a skirt that has a good sized pattern like elaborate lace and find the right colored panties to go under it for a strikingly bold take to the lingerie trend.
