Lingerie. It’s not just for Victoria’s Secret anymore. Big name designers like Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and Christian Dior sent their models down the runway in corsets, lace, and my favorite- tap shorts. Obviously, the big question is can college girls pull this off in real life? Well, first off I think our age group has a much better chance than anyone over the age of 30, but still this is definitely a tread with caution trend. However, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be able to incorporate a lingerie inspired piece into your next going out look as long as you carefully balance out the rest of your ensemble with some trusty basics.
Look #1: The Corset
The corset is probably the most common piece of lingerie inspired clothing. The key is to keep it fun, playful, and flirty by choosing bright colors and staying away from anything lacy or black.
Look #2: The Bralet
This is not for the faint of heart, but for those of you with an itty bitty waist and not overwhelming cleavage this can look tres chic if paired with a high waisted skirt that leaves only a tiny strip of the ribcage exposed.
Look #3: Tap Shorts
Ever since my journey to Aussie Land a few summers back, I’ve been a big fan of shorts as a night time look. Tap shorts are just a comfy and silky variety. Keep it simple on top with a bodysuit that will create a streamlined look.
