Gone are the days of wearing soccer shorts and college sweats to bed. No, I'm a full-fledged adult woman in an adult relationship as evidenced by my arsenal of pretty lacy underthings. As of late, these bedroom staples are crossing over into street style and I'm rejoicing because good lingerie is too pretty to hide! There is something quite alluring about carefully placed lace and delicate straps exposed ever so thoughtfully and incorporated into your look. Read on for tips on styling lingerie looks without venturing into too-alluring territory.
The Lingerie Top:
As with any daring piece, the key is proportion. A low cut top needs balance provided by more conservative pieces like a classic blazer and kitten heels. The silver choker and studded heels modernize the look while frayed-hem jeans keep things from feeling too stuffy. It's perfect for a night out with friends.
For a more casual look, try a cozy cardigan sweater and loafers. Accessories like a belt make this look more daytime appropriate.
The Pretty Bra:
This look is a good place to start if lingerie dressing feels a bit risqué for you. Pair a backless top with delicate straps and kill'em with this undeniably sexy (but subtle) combo.
I love a bodysuit peeking out under a cozy knit. This one pairs perfectly with my lace-up sweater for a casual look and can also be worn with a belted blazer for a date-night look.
