With the passing of recent fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, and New York, the catwalks were full of lingerie-inspired pieces and slip dresses. These lingerie-inspired pieces have been spotted on streets everywhere this season. Silky slips, lace camisoles, and robes aren’t only being experimented with in the fashion world, but they are being worn as outerwear with a change of thought. The trick is to get the styling right with intentional purpose in what is being pursued. Pushing the boundaries of what we wear is what it is coming down to.
Coming out from behind shirts and tops, this Fashionista is wearing her lacy black and white negligee tucked into her jeans which is touching on the trend of wearing lingerie-inspired pieces as outerwear. Her strappy, pointed stilettos with distressed jeans put an edge to the outfit. To finish it off, her dusty pink duster adds to the French chicness of lingerie as the dernier cri.
The lacy detailing and distinct fabrics being used show this trend relate to the phrase “Your underwear is showing.” The most appropriate answer for that today would be “Thank you.” Again, styling something right with intentional purpose is what it comes down to. Visible ‘undergarments’ are now outerwear and lingerie-inspired dresses are all over the runway. It’s easier to master wearing these pieces as something else now thanks to Dior, Bouchra Jarrar for Lanvin, and Alexander Wang. Along with comfort, the elegance these pieces can show off is marvelous. Think of a silky blush robe over a sheer lace top with a black bra peeking through. When delving into this trend, explore the options and experiment with bits and pieces. If done with intention and confidence, it will feel like walking off the runway onto the streets with high fashion in mind and at hand.
