How to Make Your Intimates Part of Your Outfits

Wearing lingerie as outerwear isn’t a new trend. But it’s definitely an exciting one that’s here to stay, especially as more people embrace their personal style and love of lingerie. Whether you’re staying in or going out, lingerie styling is a unique way to express yourself, just as you do with any clothing you adore. 

Madonna may have made the cone bra mainstream popular in 1990, but today, you can play with intimates in any way that works for you. You get to make your own rules with lingerie fashion. Are you ready to wear your lingerie like no one is watching? Do it. Read on for styling inspiration, thoughts on fabrics, and tips on how to wear innerwear as outerwear.

Feminine Details: Fine Fabrics, Trims, and Lace Accents

The design details you appreciate in chic intimates—delicate floral lace over sheer mesh cups or scallop trim along the neckline—are features that can easily be woven into an outfit. It’s those unexpected accents that complete your look! Slightly see-through mesh, beautiful lace, and touches of attractive embroidery can take an everyday look to the next level of femininity. 

Tip: Make your best black bras work for you and only you. It’s the sexy frame of a black cage bra under a camisole top or the sheer black lace of plunging bra cups that add subtle and sensual interest to your low-cut tops. The soft, smooth, or textured materials that you enjoy wearing on your outer layers can also peek out from underneath your clothing.

Be Brave: Bold Colors, Patterns, and Prints 

There’s a time and place for beige bras and panties. The same can be said of more colorful intimates with interesting patterns and visual elements. It’s those pieces that blur the line between underwear and outerwear. It’s the brilliant blue lingerie inspired by sunny days at the pool. It’s the hot pink bra the color of an exotic fruit. How can you make these pieces part of your look?

Tip: Bring a plain jacket or blazer to life by wearing a bold bra underneath. Knock your look out of the park with a balconette bra featuring intricate lace cups the color of the morning sky or lilacs after rain. Think about your personality and then think about what beautiful lace (or delicious embroidery) can add to your overall look. 

Double Trouble: Intimates as Outfits

Have you wanted to wear certain pieces outside the house, but you worry someone will know it’s your underwear? Put that aside for a minute. If you love wearing a beautiful bodysuit around the house while you’re working or lounging, you can definitely transition it to be part of your next favorite outfit. 

Tip: Wear a bodysuit with your favorite jeans to your next girls’ night. Regular clothing is often inspired by lingerie, so no one will know the difference. You could do the same thing with pretty slips in beautiful colors or silk robes with eye-catching patterns.
