Summer is finally here, and there’s never a better time to get a bit more daring with your fashion choices. Underwear as outerwear is set to remain a steady trend in 2023 as it has in the past few years. While it might feel intimidating to go out bearing all, this is a style that can feel incredibly empowering and confidence-boosting.
In our latest blog post, we present our tips for embracing the lingerie as outerwear trend to show off some of your favourite Ayten Gasson pieces. We’ve also put together a sustainable shopping guide to help curate outfits that let your lace intimates shine.
Our top tips for embracing the trend
Choose some lingerie pieces that have intricate detailing to elevate your outfit. Our range of silk camisoles feature stunning lacework, pairing perfectly under jackets, cardigans and blazers for a fit that’s both comfortable and fashion-forward.
Wearing underwear as outerwear doesn’t have to mean parading about in your panties. Try a subtle approach of including your favourite slip dresses, like our Zoe Black Lace Slip, in your daily attire. This still gives you some coverage, while providing a hint of sensuality.
At formal events or occasions, when a little more sophistication is required, layer your exposed lingerie with a smart co-ord set. An oversized blazer and matching fitted trousers are a super stylish pairing.
If you want to feel a little more covered up but also define your silhouette, pair a bodysuit with high-waisted trousers or shorts. You could also layer one under a slightly sheer dress to create an ultra-feminine evening outfit.
The underwear as outerwear shopping guide
Not sure where to start with this trend? Here are some of our top picks for putting together an outfit that embraces your lingerie this summer. Each brand below aligns with our sustainability mission, so you can shop consciously and with the preservation of our planet at the forefront!
When selecting stylish underwear as outerwear pieces, it has to be Ayten Gasson. Granted we might be biased, but our handmade silk lingerie is made to be shown off. Whether you choose to do that from the intimacy of your bedroom or as a fashion staple this season, these three detailed pieces are some of our favourites.
You’ve got your lingerie sorted, now it’s time to layer up a little. We love a neutral suit co-ord, like this one from Reformation, that will let your camisoles and bodysuits beneath be the star of the show. Go buttoned up for more coverage or leave the jacket undone for a more relaxed vibe. Alternatively, throw your oversized blazer over our silk slip dress to stay stylish at evening events this summer.
This trend is also easy to embrace for your casual, everyday looks. We recently discovered this Tencel top from the Spanish brand .blacktogrey and have fallen in love. It would go stylishly under one of our silk camisoles with this black mini skirt and linen shoes from Vandrelaar. You could even layer under a silk slip dress for that true 90s feel.
