Slip




See my slip?
I assure you, that is no accident.
Nor an attempt to look like an "effortless floozy."
Maybe you've heard of that
inner-wear-as-outerwear thing?





Oh, yeah,
I WENT THERE.

I believe the trick in this case is to utilize
more structured and sturdier pieces,
such as tights, strong footwear, and jackets
in order to give the look more...purpose,
rather than:
"Yes, I really did roll out of bed today with absolutely no sense of decency."

It's all about balance, darlings, all about balance.

(P.S.) Play with proportions when you're working with lingerie. If you're you're worried about showing the entire slip, a long top that falls below your booty should give some modesty. Plus, that little strip of lace peeking out is so darn cute.

  1. Oh my gosh, I love that. Just the little peek of the slip under that over-sized sweater is darling. PRECIOUS. I have yet to try the lingerie look. I think I'm going to wear boxers with shamrocks on them for St. Patrick's Day, but that doesn't count. Once I'm eighteen and I don't have to deal with my mom telling me I look like a prostitute, I'll definitely try the underwear-as-outerwear look. I'm quite fond of it.

  8. I love the way you wear this trend! It's subtle, but endearing and you definitely don't look as if you forgot to put on pants in the morning. Great look!

  12. The slip is so elegant! It's weird how showing ones undergarments has become the height of elegance, but there we go! Although fat people with their thongs showing is still. A. No. Forever.
