Thursday Trends - Underwear as Outerwear

Underwear as Outerwear Trend for SS14
The underwear as outerwear trend has appeared and reappeared frequently over the last few years, but this time around, the high-street has really caught on. When I watched some of the SS14 a few months ago, I was delighted to see the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, Marchesa, Antipodium, and Elie Saab (my love!) showcasing some lingerie-inspired outfits on the catwalk! Surely enough, Topshop, Miss Selfridge, American Apparel, River Island, Urban Outfitters and a whole host of other high-street darlings, as well as a bunch of online retailers, ranging from Nasty Gal to Motel to Asos and beyond, have followed suit. Here, I'm sharing with you my pick of the trend, from knicker shorts to slip dresses, from cami tops to harness belts, and lots of bralets and bustiers in between! Hope you like it!
By the way, click on the images to enlarge them! They appeared quite small on here, but the actual image is a little bigger. (:
