Know that lacy, sexy bra that sits in your closet, collecting dust, waiting to finally be worn? Maybe you’re saving it for a special someone to see, or for a night in with a bottle of wine and your favorite rom-com. Whatever the occasion may be, now is the time to stop waiting for it. Thanks to style icons like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, boudoir-inspired clothing is taking over streetwear. Whether you choose to go with a more modest approach like a slip dress, or to bare it all with a transparent bra, making this trend your own is easy. As this summer ends, embrace your confidence and dare to wear lingerie as daywear.
// SLIP DRESS
One of the easiest ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is with a satin or silk slip dress. They’re comfortable, lightweight, and not too revealing if that’s something you’re concerned with. Wear with a strapped heel for a look that an early 2000’s Paris Hilton would have dreamed of.
In the past month, the most intriguing trend that’s arrived is shapewear worn over clothing. Corsets, cinchers, and more worn over baggy cotton come together for a juxtaposition that can’t help but fascinate. Bike shorts and similar leg shapewear have been seen all over Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe, adding an element of surprise, to say the least.
// SATIN COAT
Need a cover up for your satin slip? Look no further than a satin robe. Since the lingerie trend is all about satin and other luxurious fabrics, there’s no such thing as too much of this textile. Take a tip from Rihanna and dress up your bedroom look with some furry heels. We recommend letting the robe hang open to mimic a conventional coat.
Since the beginning of this year, the bodysuit has taken ready-to-wear fashion by storm as one of the most sought after pieces. To really stand out, ditch the cotton and play with other textiles. Pair with your favorite denim for a sensual, sophisticated style.
Although this trend may be exclusively for the most daring, thankfully it’s becoming less taboo to show off a little here and there. Take a risk and pull out that bra you’ve been waiting to wear. Style with other opaque garments to avoid sensory overkill. Top with a satin robe for a Rihanna-style look that will be sure to turn heads.
