1. Give your lingerie it’s moment in the sun…

Make your lingerie summertime appropes by channeling 80’s nostalgia and teaming a lace corset with your everyday go-to denim. The perfect look for warm weather and those day drinks in the sun, the trick here is to tone down the overtly sexy look of the lingerie against a more casual piece aka your jeans or denim shorts. Tip: the more ripped and distressed your denim is to better to really contrast against the dressy feel of the top.


2. Make your lingerie office appropes

Yep, you heard right, you really can wear your underwear to work. No, we’re not talking about in your nightmares when you turn up to your 9-5 and it turns out you’ve forgot to put on clothes (anyone else ever had that dream?) Opt for a simple silk bodysuit featuring a lace eyelet trim and team with a pair of high waisted tailored pants for an effortlessly chic look that’s perfect for the office and out.


3. Jet your lingerie off on vacay

When the weather heats up, it’s time to switch up your look to follow suit. If you’re the type that dares to bare, work the underwear as outerwear trend by bringing your fave barely-there bra out of the bedroom and into real life. We say to make this work, make sure the bra is interesting enough to be a standalone piece here by choosing a bra featuring killer harness detailing or cut outs. Then team with anything high waisted and you’re good to go for cocktails by the beach and dancing until the sun comes up.


4. Take your lingerie out on a date

Channel the ultimate in romance with a silky or satin bodysuit when it comes to working the trend for date night with your significant other. This bodysuit featuring lace trim and intricate detailing to the bust is perfect to get hearts racing. Team with anything high waisted and a sleek pony tail for a polished finish on this ultimate dinner and drinks look.


5. Feeling shy? Play peekaboo…

For a more subtle take on the underwear as outerwear trend, keep the look polished and opt for a tailored two piece with a peekaboo bra. The trick here is to choose a bra that creates enough drama and enough of a statement without having to show too much. For this, we suggest a barely-there lace bra to create a contrast between showing some skin but still being covered up, or go for a luxe feel and choose a silky or satin bra top.
