Have you had the urge to lose your clothes in the summer heat? If you wish to maximise breathability while staying stylish, wearing lingerie as outerwear is your way to go!

Lingerie as outerwear has been trending since the 1990s, revolutionising the rigid function and style of undergarments. It is not just a milestone of fashion design, but also symbolises freedom of expression and sexual liberation.

Read about our intimate stylists’ tips on wearing lingerie, and make yourself hotter in this hot summer!

1. Tone-on-tone is your safe bet


Tone-on-tone style is fashionable but quick and easy. All you need to do is find a piece of clothing that is of similar shades with your lingerie. For example, the geometric lines of Playful Promises’ Ramona Mesh Bra pairs well with our stylist’s emerald pleated dress.

Overalls and oversized shirts are beginner-friendly options for those looking for subtly sexy looks. The intricate laces and floral patterns of your Nette Rose never seem out of place with these.

5. Simpler is better


You don’t need to go overboard to tease. Wearing Bluebella’s Iris Body Suit under a plain white blouse and jeans is a great way to catch people’s attention in a subtle and sleek way.

The bold shoulder straps of Arabella Bra and the light chiffon dress contrasts your wild and mellow sides. A fluid choice for a dynamic fashionista!

Who said suspenders were only good for stockings? It’s actually a great adornment for denim jeans. The Nadia series is an absolute head-turner for all its sexiness and jazz!
