How to Rock the Underwear as Outerwear Trend
Ever rifled through your lingerie collection and found yourself thinking - it's a shame the whole world doesn't get to see my favourite bra?
Yep, us too. Especially now we've got Parisienne, Lovehoney's luscious new lingerie collection, in our lives.
Underwear as outerwear is a huge trend at the moment, with bra/top hybrids everywhere you look, especially now Britain seems to think it's part of the subtropics.
Think less is more for this look - Kendall at Coachella rather than Courtney Love in a satin nightie circa 1995 - and you're on the right track.
And as long as you're subtle (not all of us have the guts to rock a wet look basque while doing the weekly shop) you can easily work lingerie into your daytime look.
Here are a few ideas to inspire you - let us know how you wear yours in the comments below!
Like a long top and a bra in one, a chemise with underwired cups takes the faff out of finding the right bra for your outfit, and the figure-hugging fabric tucks perfectly into high-waisted jeans or a midi skirt.
You can get a similar look with a body - but make sure you get one with poppers to the crotch, or you'll have to take off ALL your clothes when you go to the loo.
Kimo-no need for a coat
A sexy summer alternative to a coat or cardigan, your Lovehoney lace robe makes a cute boho-style cover-up.
Contrast is key with this look - wear your robe with anything too loose and baggy and you'll end up swamped in fabric, especially if you're petite.
Instead, wrap it over a camisole and skinny jeans, or pair with a bodycon dress.
Want to flaunt your favourite bra without baring all?
Going braless with a backless dress is obviously an option, but if you want a litte bit of support, bras, bralettes and bodies with eye-catching rear detail have got your back.
Seven 'til Midnight's Floral High Neck Bra has an amazing racer-back design with criss-cross, corset-style ribbons, while Lovehoney's Parisienne Plunge Longline Bra has a delicate lace back that demands to be seen.
Harness bras are here to sex up your most sensible outfit.
Going out after work? Unless you're heading to a fetish club, you'll want to keep this look subtle - think a glimpse of an O-ring, between-the-boobs strap or choker.
Slip a harness bralette in your bag, and give that little black dress or baggy top instant edge.
Or, wear it over a plain t-shirt for a subtle nod to fetish fashion.
