See-through bodysuits and lace bras worn as tops ... underwear is meant to be seen now. But how do you wear it without looking undressed?
Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner and, of course, the Kardashians aren’t covering up their bras or bodysuits any more but instead, wearing them as actual clothing.
Luxe labels like Dior and Stella McCartney, along with lingerie chains Bras N Things and Gooseberry Intimates and even Spanx are designing brassieres and bodysuits to be seen.
Kim and Khloe Kardashian have really been into this look, teaming sheer bras and bodysuits with athleisure pants, including Adidas’ three-stripe snap trackies that you may have worn circa 1998.
They went one step further by wearing completely sheer lace bodysuits that could only be made PG enough to wear outside with the help of strategically-placed nipple covers.
Bras N Things designer/buyer Jessica Lauppe-Guy said the underwear as outerwear trend was a key look for Australian shoppers at the moment.
“It’s super feminine with sheer and mesh details and eyelash lace that is used traditionally in lingerie,” Lauppe-Guy told News Corp Australia today.
She said fashion forward shoppers were teaming lingerie “with harder elements like chokers, studs, thick and heavy fabrics like velvet” a la the Kardashians and Hadids.
The look, she said, could be worn in the autumn months by showing off lace bras and camisoles under chunky knitwear, so you can see “a hint of it underneath”.
“Then it looks like a complete outfit rather than a random bra that you happen to be showing,” Lauppe-Guy said.
