How to Wear Your Bra Outside with the Bra-Over-Shirt-Trend
In recent years, the lingerie-as-outerwear trend has become hotter and hotter. We have seen everything from wearing a set of classic silk PJs to a red carpet event, to wearing a silk slip sleeping gown to a party. Of course, another more “look at me” trend is Bra-over-shirt.
Wait… you’re wearing your bra outside of your top? Yup! Wearing underwear as outerwear isn’t anything new. Madonna was rocking her iconic Gaultier cone bra back in 1990. Lady Gaga wore a set of velvet bra and shorts outside at the 2009 ACE Awards in New York in November 2009. Her undergarment look for me is a bit more comfortable than her meat dress 😉
The last few seasons, we have seen more and more of the Bra-Over-Shirt-Trend on the runway and on the street. Ladies are opting to reverse the traditionally preferred layering combination for an altogether fresh and sartorially inspiring take on undergarments.
By now, wearing your lingerie and intimate garments out in the open is pretty much a classic style move. Underneath or over the top? Ironic trend or pure flirting? Maybe the right formula is a mix of all these.
I have always wanted to try this trend, but I’m always too concerned about showing too much skin (don’t forget I’m also a teacher!). It wasn’t until I found this cute Satin Rose Bralette that I was like, “Yup, I am going to do it!” But, I always like to keep my look in alignment with my elegant style, so I paired it with a classic black and white look. For me, this bold bra added the interest to an otherwise ordinary and a little too basic look. My step-daughter, who is my photographer, really didn’t like this look.;) What are your thoughts on this trend or on my look today? It is a ‘yay’ or a ‘nay’ for you?
