There’s something unwittingly alluring when lingerie subtly peeks through a polished outfit worn during the day. Incorporating these lacy delicates to everyday ensembles has become a ubiquitous trend following its presence on the runways last year (see Givenchy and Saint Laurent), but actually creating these looks IRL is a challenge many of us are hesitant to tackle in fear of coming off provocative and downright inappropriate. However, with the correct combination of sophisticated, elevated pieces catering to winter daytime apparel, we promise this cool, of-the-moment look hints the right amount of sexy. Here, 4 styling tricks to adhere to when wearing lingerie beyond the boudoir.
The New Sexy
Pair a crisp white shirt with a velvety slip dress and top with an oversize cocoon coat for a professional spin. Opt for flat mule loafers to bring the look down to earth and finish with a sleek, edgy single earring.
Whether you're running errands or just want to be comfortable for the day, we suggest teaming a silky lace cami with slim jogger pants and a longline cashmere cardigan. Add a little twist with quirky, glittery slippers.
For a more luxurious feel repurpose a lacy slip under a jewel-toned velvet suit for a cool, elevated look. Add height with vampy leather stiletto booties and carry your essentials in a studded clutch.
Layering is key in formulating the ultimate lingerie-inspired street style outfit. Combine a long-sleeve turtleneck underneath a vibrant slip to hang over cropped frayed jeans. Top if off with a warm furry leather jacket and accessorize with circle sunnies and animated kicks.
