Underwear As Outerwear - Actually!
With 2018 well and truly upon us one style I am excited to see on repeat is underwear as outerwear.
No longer is the trend confined to the likes of VS supermodels and "insta-celebs". Just look in your local city streets and see every day girls rocking this style.
You may be thinking. "How do I pull off underwear as outerwear, without an army of top notch stylist at my disposal?"
The answer; quite easily (and you don’t have to be a lingerie model to pull it off!)
Below I have taken 3 different Palindrome lingerie pieces and have turned them into an outfit you can wear for almost any occasion.
Team a statement bra with a suit to create an ultimate night out look. Perfect for cocktails and catch ups with your GFs or a first date with the person you’ve had your eye on. The Balconette bra is great for this look; it’s a feminine style in a flattering fit with some nice, unexpected details. The look screams boss babe and you can’t help but feel empowered while wearing it. If you’re worried about showing too much skin, button up the jacket for a subtle sexy cool look.

My favourite look from this whole set! The romper is extremely versatile and a great investment for your wardrobe. Straight out of bed, throw on a comfy knit and your kicks to get your morning cup of coffee, switch up the knit with a blazer for your Saturday morning errand run then as the sun goes down team it with a pair of jeans and your favourite heels for an evening out on the town. The key to this outfit is to let the romper do the talking. Complete the outfit with understated pieces, as shown below. Shop the Birdie Romper here.
A bit more on the risqué side, this look is sure to turn heads for all the right reasons. Wear your favourite black bra under a mesh top for a subtle compliment to your outfit. I’ve opted for a grunge meets polished street look with this look (note the red boots) but you could easily swap the baggy ripped jeans for a skirt or high waisted jeans for a more feminine look. If you feel a mesh shirt leaves you a little too exposed, a loosely buttoned blouse will make the perfect substitute. Shop the Panthera Contour Balconette here.
Use these ideas to nail your next underwear as outerwear outfit and remember to get creative with your look!
