The Streets are Full of Silk

Today, I wanted to talk to you about the lingerie trend, and how we can incorporate it into our wardrobe.

Most of you might be thinking, “Whaat? There’s no way I’m going to wear a silk camisole or a lingerie bra. She must be out of her mind!” But trust me, you will.

The streets are full of lingerie pieces. Now, women wear their underwear as outwear. Some of them use a black bra over a white t-shirt, others use transparent pieces with flamboyant brass, and the list keeps on and on.

I have personally decided to try this trend by wearing a silky body, a wavy short and a pair of silver boots. On the other hand, my beautiful friend is wearing a lingerie bra with a furry vest and a pair of jeans. The latest outfit is urban and casual… and sexy.

The color that prevails in my outfit is the black, so I played with the shapes, cuts, and necklines of the clothing pieces in order to make it interesting and different. As it can be seen, the body has a “V” neck shape with a low cut in the back, the short has multiple waves on both sides, and the jacket has a cut at the shoulders height. It seems like the clothing pieces belong together; more than that, they complement each other. This is a great way to keep the monochromatic and minimalist trend on point without being predictable.

Moreover, the silver boots with a zipper in the middle give a retro style to the look; zippers were a characteristic element in fashion during the 80’s. Boots are an amazing addition to this look. Why? Because they cover a partial part of the legs, which makes them look longer and more stylized. This outfit can be worn for a drinks night – ending up at a nightclub – or for any semi-casual occasion.

Then, there is the second outfit. Since a lingerie bra cannot be worn by itself, we decided to add some life to it. And the best way to do this is by mixing textures. The furry vest is a great alternative to give volume to the look and create movement. Now, the outfit is much more vivid! Also, jeans are always an amazing alternative when we want to keep our look casual. Since jeans are tight, they recreate the silhouette of the legs to perfection making us look slimmer. Here, the black tip shoes are the final touch! This type of shoes is elegant and goes well with almost everything. And when I say everything, I mean it!

Now, it seems like we will need to find a more accurate name for underwear because lately it has not been used underneath… If you know what I’m talking about.

Color Codes

oui

I know that since we were little, we have heard the phrase: “Those colors don’t look well together!”

Even my mom used to say to me: “Brown and black don’t get along.” But let’s think about that for a moment. Is the color rule real? Does it make sense? No, for me it doesn’t.

I believe that we can wear whichever color we want to, as long as we know HOW to wear it. That’s the key.

For instance, in this picture we see the outfit on the right, and we can notice that the pieces have red, pink and light blue. Most of people would say that is a terrible combination, but it works for me. First of all, pink and blue look great together because they are soft colors; they don’t overshadow each other, but they accompany one another. The red is the strongest color here; it’s the one that makes the greatest contrast in the outfit.

Moreover, the second proposal, located on the left side of the picture, has navy blue, a brownish red and champagne color. These colors are the opposite, but they work well together. Why? Because each of them shines due to their uniqueness. In addition, the pattern of the pants contains the three colors in one piece, so it looks like they belong together. The outfit seems natural and organic.

When it comes to fashion we have to be different — think different.

Mixing textures and colors is an amazing way to provide vivacity to the outfit. The variety of fabrics, patterns, colors and shapes give originality to our look.

So we can’t be afraid to use colors to our advantage; they are there for our own use!

So please do me a favor and come up with the craziest and greatest combination ever.

Much love.
