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...

Susan Sarandon

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.

Ashley Graham

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.

Black silk camisole by THREE GRACES LONDON

The silk camisole is this season's hottest wardrobe staple; Effortlessly chic and perfect for both day and night. It's the ideal layering piece - as versatile as the British weather.

Here are 4 ways to wear yours this summer ...

ON IT'S OWNSummer-style-fashion-underwear-as-outerwear-silk-camisole-three-graces-london-how-to-wear-black-silk-outfits-03(3)

Pair with jeans for a simple and sophisticated look. This outfit can easily take you from desk to dance floor, simply swap out your shoes and accessories for a completely new feel. Or team with a lace bralet for a more seductive style.

II

ON TOP OF A TEE

Recreate Cher Horowitz's tennis court ensemble with the iconic 90's  cami-over-tee combo. Now that silk camisoles and slip dresses are returning to fashion, it seems as good a time as ever to revive the throwback trend.

III

OVER A SHIRT

This summer's equivalent  to Autumn/Winters's sweater-over-shirt combo. Nothing feels better than a crisp white shirt on a warm day and this look is great for the office.

IIII

WITH A POLO NECK
