Leave a Comment

Pop stars have been doing it for years, and it’€™s a trend that’€™s responsible for one of Madonna’€™s most iconic looks,€“ the Jean Paul Gaultier gold corset complete with those conical cups!

Today we see Miley, Gaga, Rihanna and the rest of the usual suspects wearing their underwear as outwear, but this time the shock factor isn’t so high… in fact it’€™s giving us some ideas!

The ever shy and retiring Courtney Stodden went out wearing a sheer negligee last which left little… well, nothing to the imagination, but there are plenty of ways to pull off the underwear as outerwear trend without suffering from a wardrobe malfunction!

The most popular way to work this trend is to wear a corset or bustier on the top with a more demure pencil skirt, shorts or jeans underneath. If you’€™re feeling self conscious, you can always layer up with a blazer or cardigan. Either way it’s a fab look that oozes confidence and flirtiness.


I don’t know about you but I’€™ve been seeing a LOT of sheer in the shops lately, and this works perfectly with the underwear as outwear trend! Wearing a sheer blouse or lacy top over underwear is a really hot look right now. The best thing about this trend is that you can finally show off and be creative with those clothing items that only very special people see. If you’€™ve been given a fancy bra for Valentines€™ day, sometimes you just want people to see it, right? Well now you can!

Don’t forget undies too! The biggest underwear as outerwear trend going on right now is wearing 50’s inspired high waisted knickers as shorts. These can be worn over tights or leggings if you’re a bit worried about showing too much leg, but it’s a seriously sexy look.

The look needs a whole heap of attitude and confidence and a bit of attention to detail as after all, showing the world your lingerie takes a lot of chutzpah, but it’€™s progressive, liberating, stylish and FUN! I say to girls (and boys) if you’€™ve got it… flaunt it!
