Early September last year, Victoria’s Secret came out with a campaign encouraging women to wear lingerie as outerwear. As is common with everything that VS does, this too received plenty of backlash from women and feminists around the world. Although the lingerie trend didn’t exactly catch on early on, I spotted quite a few blogger sporting the less revealing ‘pajamas as outerwear’ trend during September’s fashion weeks. Now that we’re closer to spring and the weather’s getting warmer, I’ve been seeing more people wear the sexier version of this underwear trend and I love it!
I’ve worn this lingerie-inspired top a few times on a night out and think it’s best for those purposes. I’ve always had a coat on for extra cover up: I think it balances the whole look quite nicely, and doesn’t leave you feeling too naked. I’m definitely intrigued to try more similar looks as otherwise these pretty pieces would never get to see the light of the day! (Single girl alert)
How do you feel about the underwear as outerwear trend? Are you a more of a pajama kind of girl, or do you like your lingerie?
Oh, and mom, if you’re reading this then I’m not actually wearing a bra, it’s a crop top! 🌝
