Why Lingerie is the New Outerwear

February 14, 2019

From Kendal Jenner to Bella Hadid you’ve likely seen the hottest influencers rocking a new trend: lingerie as outerwear. Wearing something special like a lush satin robe or sexy lace teddy bodysuit can make you feel beautiful, confident and empowered. So why reserve that feeling just for the bedroom?

The concept of wearing lingerie as outerwear may seem risque; however, you don’t need to be a supermodel to embrace this trend. There are subtle and tasteful ways to look and feel sexy by pairing lingerie staples like bralettes and bodysuits with day wear staples like dress pants, blazers, and sweaters. Here’s a guide to how you can rock this latest trend for a special date night, or a fun brunch party.

Show them you mean business: Mix business wear with sophisticated lingerie

Wearing a bra with business wear, such as a sophisticated black pantsuit can create a cute peekaboo effect as seen below on the YouTube star and influencer Msroshposh, below. Pairing a chunky necklace with a simple bra and monochrome blazer is the best way to make a bold statement.

The bra and pantsuit look is one of the most popular lingerie trends as seen on Lady Gaga.

Mix and match with a beautiful lace bodysuit  

The next time you’re shopping for a holiday party or a special date night consider a bodysuit. Bodysuits are a sexy and flattering lingerie choice because they’re slimming. They can also help you accentuate your assets. While simply wearing a bodysuit in the daytime may be too daring, you can transform your nightwear to day wear by wearing a bodysuit with a high waist ed monochrome skirt or underneath a sheer dress. The result will be an alluring and feminine outfit that will turn heads. If you want a bold and luxurious look, mix the bodysuit with a beaded dress.

Alternatively, bodysuits can have you looking snatched when paired with a pair of high-waisted jeans. Take a look at how this stunning model rocks her Boux Avenue lingerie for a night out.

Keep cozy with a cute kimono

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style to stay cozy.

Satin robes and kimonos are a simple way to combine your day wear with nightwear. Next time you go out, wrap yourself up with a soft silk or satin kimono. These elegant garments look great when paired with straight leg jeans or dress pants, and a statement necklace.

Rock Your Underwear Inside Out

While we don’t advise you wear your underwear outside of your outfit. You could wear a cute baby-doll dress, or bra over top of a sweater to create a cheeky, but modest outfit. Rihanna’s Fenty Savage line features several examples of fun style inspiration as seen below.

Wearing lingerie is fun, feminine and hot. So don’t limit the fun feeling of wearing something sexy to just the nighttime! Embrace lingerie staples like kimonos and bodysuits by pairing them with dress pants and sophisticated business wear.
