It all started off back in the 80s when Madonna wore 'that' cone bra and a skin tight girdle. At that time it was very daring to dress in such a way, and she has certainly been remembered for it. However in this day and age it is not so controversial. Like it or not the trend of wearing your underwear as outerwear has been around for a while and will continue to stay with the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga making it the norm to do so.
You have to be a little daring and confident to wear this trend, but at the same time remember that it you are trying to look sexy and not vulgar. Nobody likes that girl who gets her bobs and bum out on a night out!
HOW TO WEAR IT
You don't have to actually go out in your underwear to wear this trend, sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference. Pick items items that are edged in lace or have that corset/bra looking feel like the dress from ASOS below.
Feeling to exposed? You don't have to go the whole hog a feel totally naked. Team a dress with a cardigan or a blazer to make you feel more relaxed and comfortable in what your wearing.
Try to avoid sheer fabrics, coverage is the key to this trend so opt for silks and satins that give you a more elegant look in the daytime and a more glam look in the evening.
It's not just the 'sexy' underwear thats in. Rihanna went as far as to wear a silk blouse and trousers on the red carpet at the premiere of her film Battleship. Now I'm not quite saying take it as far as her but pairing a blouse like the one from ASOS below with some denim shorts is a really cute way of wearing the trend.
