Why Underwear As Outwear Is In For Summer

This is a LOOK advertorial

From negligée chiffons to bra-showing sheers, the underwear as outerwear trend is still as topical as ever. Although not always the easiest to wear (it helps if you’re slim and have a small bust), this lingerie look is guaranteed to make you feel sensational and is ideal for those super-hot days when normal clothes seem… well… just too much.

The slip dress

The big story of the season is the slip dress. Silky, lacy and barely there, it skims over your figure to shimmer and shine in the summer sun. Dress it down with trainers and a biker jacket for a look that’s both effortless and comfy or add a short-sleeve white tee underneath – a simple 90s trick that works every time.

The hero cami

The camisole is back – and for good reason too. A-line skirts…denim shorts…culottes or jeans – you can wear this slinky staple to a wedding, festival and everything inbetween. Look for sheeny metallics, soft barely-there nudes and peachy corals with pretty lace inserts or ruffle detailing and wow with frayed-hem denim shorts ¬¬–or printed culottes for a dressier look.

Sexy shapewear

Queen of bodies Beyoncé has upped the undies game by stepping on to the stage in figure-hugging body suits and we want to style her style. To turn the look into something you can wear for a summer party, opt for a black lace body underneath a sheer top for a sassy day-to-night look.

Sports luxe

No need to hit up the gym ladies – it’s now de rigueur to wear a sexy sports bra to jazz up your daywear. Think mesh panels, neon accents, abstract prints and LOTS of straps. Finally, a trend that bigger busts can full embrace that doesn’t compromise style or comfort – result.
