Slip Into This Romantic Trend...
Once-upon-a-time, a ‘bra strap slip’ was a catalyst for cringe-fests and Agony Aunt submissions across the teenage community. But – luckily – as we’ve grown, we’ve matured and the world has also grown up too: Newsflash: women wear bras! In a delightful twist (one your adolescent know-it-all self didn’t even predict), the tables have now turned... You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘underwear as outerwear’ a million times, but have you considered embracing it?
Fashion’s fascination with a 90s revival spawned slinky slip dresses and spaghetti straps, which in turn kick-started the acceptance of garments historically deemed ‘intimate’ as viable daywear options. In true championing spirit, us ladies have worked this trend to our best advantage, making the humble bra the star of the sartorial show.
For AW16, we have some truly beautiful creations that are anything but basic. Our new selection of lingerie spans subtle, strappy, sexy, romantic, pretty, delicate, and more – so you’ll 100% find a style you LOVE. Best of all, these cuties are fully functional, which means there’s no compromise of support.
The idea behind this slinky style is to embrace all those pesky issues that were previously the stuff of fashion nightmares. Bra straps are not ugly, or shameful, so why have we been trying to trick people with those extremely visible ‘see-through’ straps, and struggling with slouchy strapless bras our WHOLE life? No more, we say!
Opt for embroidered triangle bras, or multiple-strapped bralettes and make a feature out of them. We’re particularly into the juxtaposition of delicate underwear, and casual tees. We are also completely head-over-heels for our lingerie bodysuits. These beautiful designs look incredible under loose-hanging vest tops – who said lingerie was something to hide?
And away with the assumption that swoon-worthy lingerie costs serious dollar. This edit starts at £4, and naturally we’ve got more of the good stuff in stores, DEFINITELY worth checking out. From sets and co-ords, to mismatched separates, crop tops, and bodysuits, our lingerie department is ever expanding to encompass everything from first bras, to sculpting shapewear.
Warning: not only does this super gorge style look amazing, you may also find that it inspires surprising confidence. And with that said, please remember: this trend must be always be executed with utmost sass! Don’t be ashamed of a piece of clothing. If you must wear it, wear it proud!
