From Lea Michelle to the Kardashians to Rhianna, celebrities of all kinds are wearing lingerie-inspired fashion. But there is a big difference between actually baring your underwear and intentionally incorporating lingerie-inspired elements like lace and silk into your look. Tread carefully as you start trying out these type of outfits, because if you choose the wrong pieces to show off it can easily come off as scandalous. Some obvious choices for appropriate items to bring this trend to life include slip dresses, camisoles and bralettes - all three are easy to incorporate into your outfits to add that lingerie feel.
When you’re creating your outfit around a lingerie inspired piece, style your accessories thoughtfully. You don’t need too many focal points in one outfit, so keep in mind that the lingerie piece should be the standout. Also, try your hand at layering to make sure your outfit doesn’t seem too bare or revealing - a tee underneath or a jacket on top of your “pretty little things” will transform them into wearable fashion.
Remember, the idea is not to show as much skin as a piece of lingerie would, but to evoke the delicate feel that lingerie brings to mind. It’s best if your outfit gives off a somewhat playful or casual vibe; you just don’t want it to feel too intimate. Finally, if you add heavier pieces to your ensemble they can anchor your outfit so that it doesn’t feel so boudoir. Try a chunky heel or a structured bag to lend this kind of framework to your look.
Layering with lingerie is a great trend to try out this fall, so get your basics together with those intimates and do some experimenting!
