Trends in fashion are constantly in flux. Although trends in the lingerie world are more stable, they're still influenced by seasonal collections and can change so frequently that it’s often hard to keep up.
Let's face it, there's a big difference between the catwalk and the sidewalk. The key to staying up to date is translating the latest catwalk looks into outfits you can wear in everyday life.
This fall, Tom Ford and Thierry Mugler fully embraced the bodysuit trend by releasing lingerie inspired catsuits with lace and mesh detailing. Rocking a head-to-toe catsuit may not be everyone’s cup of tea, however, but this trend can easily be championed in a less extreme way.
A bodysuit is an easy and stress-free way to impress your partner in the bedroom, but it’s also a fantastic look for everyday outfits when paired with an oversized blazer and your favourite pair of jeans for a night out with the girls.
An increasingly popular trend in the fashion world is the exposed underwear look. This doesn’t just mean a revealing bra strap; it even means letting your underwear peep through a see-through dress or hiking the straps up above a low-waisted skirt.
Although we've been taught that visible panty lines are typically a no-no, brands like Rat and Boa have given see-through dresses a new lease of life. Slips are no longer needed; grab your favourite pair of underwear and let them be seen with this new seductive trend.
Knit underwear has been a prominent look on both the catwalk and the rails of high street stores on-and-off since crochet become cool in the 70s. Fashion brands like Zara have definitely welcomed this trend, creating a new hybrid between a bra and crop top.
The knit underwear look has also been featured on catwalks by Jacqumeus and Jonathan Simkhai in ready-to-wear collections. The best part is that this lounge-wear look is versatile; it's perfect for curling up on your sofa at home, going on vacation, or heading out for drinks.
2021 has definitely been the year of the corset. Bustiers have plastered the runways and the streets. The corset trend has transcended all colours, materials, and shapes.
A corset is a great little number to pair with some sexy underwear and stockings for your most intimate nights, but they can also be paired with jeans, skirts, joggers, tailored pants... the possibilities are endless. Wear your corset underneath a baggy suit, or over a t-shirt for the ultimate Bella Hadid look.
These runway-inspired pieces are versatile enough to command attention or give your outfits a sleek yet stylish edge. You can find inspiration anywhere you look, so don’t be afraid to mix and match prints, shapes, and even trends.
Fashion is a method of expression and, although trends may come and go, your style should always be your own. Use your clothing, and your lingerie, as a way to express your personality. After all, life’s too short to wear boring underwear.
