Top 6 styling tips for experimenting with lingerie as outerwear

Are you ready to elevate your fashion game? Today, we're spilling the beans on the ultimate guide to mastering the art of turning lingerie into outerwear. From easy layering tricks to playing with proportions, we've got the top six tips that will have you slaying the style game.

1. Layer your look

Let's kickstart our style adventure with a game-changer – layering! It's the secret sauce to effortlessly elevate your outfit. Start with a sheer blouse or a lightweight kimono robe for a touch of charm and modesty. Now, get ready to play around with layers: add a lacy bralette or camisole over a basic tee or under a blazer for a subtle, comfy allure. 

And for a fun twist, pair a slip dress with a denim jacket or a cosy cardigan, creating a perfect balance of softness and edge. These simple layering tricks make incorporating lingerie into your everyday style a breeze, giving you that chic and confident look.

2. Play around with proportions

Now, let's dive into the art of playing with proportions to create a perfectly balanced silhouette. Pair delicate lingerie pieces with structured or oversized garments for a cool and casual look. 

Try a lace bralette with high-waisted jeans or tailored pants for a chic blend of sophistication and comfort. 

Go for a fitted pencil skirt or tailored trousers when wearing a sheer blouse or kimono, showing a stylish balance between loose and structured elements. 

With these proportion play tips, you'll effortlessly master the art of balancing your outfit to make a statement.

3. Show off the details

Let's talk about the little things that make a big difference – the details! Start by choosing tops or dresses with cool cut-outs that show off a bit of your lingerie. Whether it's lace, mesh, or silk, these sneak peeks add a touch of mystery to your style.

Now, try layering lace bralettes or bodysuits under low-cut tops or blazers. It's not just comfy; it adds a bit of charm to your outfit. It's like your secret style weapon.

Remember, it's all about finding the right balance between revealing and keeping things intriguing. Play with different textures and fabrics – think soft lace or smooth silk – to add a little extra flair. With these simple tricks, you're turning your outfit into something special.

5. Accessorise wisely

Accessories, they're like the magic wand that elevates your outfit. Choose statement accessories such as belts, scarves, or jewellery to add that extra oomph to your lingerie-as-outerwear ensemble.

Consider using a wide belt to cinch the waist when wearing a slip dress or a robe. This not only adds definition but also creates a stylish silhouette. Layer delicate necklaces or throw on some statement earrings to draw attention to your neckline, complementing the focal point of your lingerie.

Accessories are the little details that make a big impact. So, when it comes to accessorising wisely, think about how each piece enhances your overall look.

6. Remember, confidence is key

Now, let's talk about the most crucial element of any stunning look – confidence. It's not just an accessory; it's your secret weapon. Embrace the lingerie-as-outerwear trend with confidence and a sense of empowerment.

Experiment with different styles, colours, and combinations until you find what makes you feel comfortable and truly expresses your personal style. Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all in fashion, and that's the beauty of it.

Consider the appropriateness of the occasion and, most importantly, tune into your own comfort level when incorporating lingerie into your outfits. Confidence is not just about what you wear; it's about how you wear it.
