In case you’re somehow unaware, ModCloth carries some seriously gorgeous underpinnings. So lovely, in fact, that it seems a shame to cover them up (though at least we’re covering our underthings with even more gorgeous ModCloth wares). And while we’re all for the “underwear as outerwear” trend, sometimes walking that thin line between risk-taking and risque can be tricky.
Lucky for us, our ModStylists are always willing to lend us a little of their styling magic, and today they’re demonstrating that you can indeed show off those gorgeous base layers without looking as if you’ve forgotten something essential at home (like, say, a shirt). Check out their tips below for taking three boudoir basics to the next level:
Bold Romance: Create a romantic outfit by combining a feminine corset with a lacy skirt. The midi-length skirt offsets the slightly more revealing top and staying in the same color family gives the appearance of wearing a dress. Neutral heels, a lady-like necklace, and a rosy cardigan complete the look and add polish.
Toughen Up: Add edge to your look by repurposing a slip as a skirt. A chambray top lends an effortless and casual appeal to this ensemble, while the bold handbag and two-tone heels play off the delicate lace hem.
Boho Beauty: Channel your inner bohemian by layering a cute bralette under your favorite sheer crocheted top. High-waisted, flared denim balances this look and sky-high wedges add retro flair (and keep your hem from dragging).
