Everybody knows that it is what’s underneath that counts, and this season’s lingerie trend couldn’t be more flesh-flashing. Think delicious, bedroom-inspired concoctions of chiffon, satin, and lace, along with a contrast of striking black lace against gorgeous nude and baby-pink palettes.
In this week’s blog post we give you our guide to lingerie style dresses, as well as our new ‘Trend in Action’ feature, complete with tricks and styling tips from our favourite bloggers.
The lingerie slip dress
Big in the 90s, this slinky number looks great worn both over a turtleneck and on its own under a stylish motorcycle jacket. Who would have thought our sexiest nighties could double for after-dark drinks?
Be pyjama party chic in this flowing, feminine style. Easy to wear, give your babydoll a cool edge with a pair of ankle boots or, for a girlier look, on-trend chunky heels. You’re welcome!
Dare to bare with a sheer nightshirt dress. With a planned yet effortless appeal, wearing your pyjamas outside has never been more sophisticated. (Of course, it’s never really been very sophisticated, has it?)
Trend in Action
Still getting your knickers in a twist about how you’re going to pull off the lingerie-as-outwear look?
Check out these looks by some of our favourite bloggers:
Super cool New York blogger Lainy is killing it with the Carrie Bradshaw Bra Effect. Sexy meets sophisticated with peekaboo lace layered under a smart, tailored blazer.
Blogger and stylist Camille rocks an oversized tee with sheer panelling. Why not combat your fear of sheer by layering transparent pieces over cute crop tops and bralets?
Song of Style
Aimee at Song of Style contrasts the soft, feminine slip dress with a tough leather jacket. A dash of 90s grunge never hurt anyone, did it?
