Trend Highlight: Innerwear as Outerwear

  • 2 min read

If you've seen influencers stepping out in their lingerie, they didn't forget to grab a t-shirt.

For decades, celebrities and influencers alike have completed their outfits with lingerie, jersey cotton tees, and yes, even bralettes.

Since the pandemic hit in 2020, the innerwear as outerwear trend has only gotten hotter. We're reaching for pieces that are comfortable, versatile, and fit our signature style. And if you think innerwear as outerwear was only made for influencers, you might want to think again.

Lingerie as outerwear: how it all started

Innerwear as outerwear goes way, way back. What used to be a pretty shocking way to dress is now embraced by our favorite pop stars, dancers, and actresses. When our favorite celebs step out in a bikini or a knit bra as a top, it's a viral trend waiting to happen. (We see you, Katie Holmes).

Stars like Madonna and Britney Spears have looked to lingerie as their uniform, along with a long list of performers. Even the devastatingly handsome James Dean was an innerwear as outerwear trailblazer. The late actor wore a t-shirt with jeans during the roaring twenties—a time when glitz and glamour were the only options.

Undergarments stay on display, and we're here for it

It’s hard to miss the overwhelming influence of lingerie. We see it on every runway and red carpet—even walking through the streets of LA or New York.

From Zoë Kravitz's jaw-dropping bejeweled Yves Saint Laurent dress at this year's Met Gala, to Zendaya's emerald green corset dress at the 2019 Emmy's, it's safe to say this trend's here to stay.

How to rock your innerwear as outerwear

Heading back to the office? Or meeting a friend for a drink? Give this trend a shot. It's the perfect way to add a sexy little spark to your everyday wardrobe staples.

Grab a classic black blazer, your favorite LoveSuze bodysuit, high-waisted pants, and you're set to make this trend completely your own.
