Lingerie as outerwear 2016
While underwear as outerwear is not a new phenomenon, 2016 has certainly been the year of revealing ruffles, silk slips and elegant exposure.
From luxurious loungewear to seductive suits and floor skimming sheer gowns, underpinnings have been utilised to elevate any ensemble.
For a unforgettable New Year’s Eve outfit, we take inspiration from the most seductive stars…
While attending the screening of Julieta at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Izabel Goulart layered a sweeping blush-hued silk satin robe over an intricately beaded bustier.
Susan Sarandon caused a social media backlash and misogynist stir at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. The Oscar-winning actor wore a white, double-breasted, buttoned-up Max Mara suit with a visible black bra underneath. Many misogynists couldn’t handle her 69-year old cleavage but we (and every sane person) thought she looked stunning in her seductive and sophisticated ensemble.
At the launch of her new lingerie line at Nordstrom this year, Ashley Graham wore a mid-length black pencil skirt and a sheer top over Adina Reay’s Fran black balcony bra. It is not the first time this year Ashley Graham has worn lingerie as outwear and it is great to see her supporting an independent UK lingerie designer.
Lace bralets have been hugely popular this year and none more so than Kendall’s favourite Anine Bing bra. First worn at Coachella, Kendall has been spotted wearing it on several occasions. Our favourite look is her 90’s over-a-plain-white-tee pairing.
At this year’s pre-grammy party, Katy Perry exhibited gothic glamour with an oversized black cross necklace, back trousers and a show-stopping intricately gold embellished corset.
At the launch party in honour of the 272-page Rizzoli tome, Dior: The Art of Color, Bella Hadid worn a lingerie inspired outfit. A stunning floor-skimming creation of nude polka dot tulle and boning over a crisp white menswear inspired lingerie set.
At the VH1 Hip Hop Honors Awards in July, Orange Is The New Black actress, Dascha Polanco looked sensational in a sheer patterned peach-coloured bodysuit which revealed her matching lingerie set.
This summer, model-of-the-moment Winnie Harlow wore a luxurious black silk robe, satin bodysuit, stockings and suspenders to Lewis Hamilton’s Grand Prix Party at Cafe Royal in London.
