The New Romantics: Lingerie as Outerwear

In recent months there has been a surge in mentioning, quite obviously, the unmentionables. No longer content in leaving a little something to the imagination, fashion lovers everywhere have taken to making their lingerie conversation pieces. Bras doubling as tops have become mainstream (have a look in H&M, they’re everywhere). Although ballsy, the look can be quite chic if done right. When paired with a high-waisted paper-bag short and boyfriend blazer, the look is fun and playful if all pieces are neutral colours (think charcoal, grey, peach, pink). I wouldn’t dare try this look in black or lace, as it would sharply stumble into S&M dominatrix catagory…meow. 

Is the bra top practical? Hell no. But I say if you’re under 35 with a bangin body and comfortable being the centre of attention (YOU WILL BE), then try this fleeting trend before it’s promptly shelved in 2010!
