Summertime dressing sometimes means seeing how little you can get away with wearing. And there’s nothing skimpier than lingerie. Yes, underwear is built to be tucked away and worn underneath (hence, the name), but there’s a growing trend as of late on the streets and runways pointing towards a higher tolerance for stand-alone lingerie. With this turning tide has come new styles of skivvies that—we swear—seem practically destined for showing off. Here, we pick some pretty options that can do double duty in daylight and after midnight.
Paired with high-waist skirts and trouser cuts, bustier styles are a chic and form-flattering alternative to tank tops. For especially hot days or nights, let a sliver of skin peek out for an unexpected, but still classy, reveal.
It’s the oldest trick in the book to let a little lace show, but these styles prove that showing your straps is hardly skanky. Layered beneath sheer tops or barely there tanks, the bra-peek is a fun way to cool down while heating things up.
We know, you absolutely live in your denim cut-offs come summer weather. But can we suggest adding a new pair of shorts to the rotation? With pretty tops and blazers, this boudoir mainstay gets elevated to high-street potential.
Let sleek bodysuits with funky patterns or sheer fabrics creep out from under revealing tank tops and looser fitting layers. Or, simply pair with skirts or shorts for a look that’ll always stay tucked in.
