UNDERWEAR AS OUTERWEAR.

UNDERWEAR AS OUTERWEAR.

It’s become a lot more acceptable to wear lingerie as outwear, just be cautious not to cross the line between sexy and skanky.  For us, you need to be mindful of a few things…

Does it cover you in the right places?  Some things are meant for certain people’s eyes only, not the general public.  A bodysuit is a great option because it offers a little more coverage on the body.

Is it luxurious and feminine?  Elegance is key when pulling off this look.

Does it work with layers?  A hint of sheer lace still leaves something to the imagination.  Layering your lingerie under a great jacket or buttoned-down man-style shirt will give you the right balance between sexy and demure.

Our inspiration for this look are Leigh Campbell from The Daily Coverage and Micah Gianelli.

Micah’s polished all-black look mixes textures and balances silhouettes for the perfect, modern, edgy look (she wears Gooseberry Intimates PARIS bodysuit – available here). While Leigh’s pairs a few of our favourite everyday items – a denim shirt, leather pants and a hint of black lace lingerie (Leigh wears Calvin Klein LONGLINE lace bra – available here).
