Ask Shopbop: Lingerie for Day

Rag & Bone cardigan (similar), Cosabella camisole, A.L.C. skirt, Vanessa Mooney body chain. Styled by Rachel.

Finding ways to work lingerie pieces into an outerwear wardrobe is a challenge. But, when done well, the outcome is worth the effort.

Juxtaposing delicate lingerie fabrics with something more substantial can help make the interior layers feel more outdoor-appropriate. Try a charmeuse and lace slip as a dress, and layer a long cozy sweater or long jacket over the top. Sheer tights and boots can give the look a ’90s feel, while bare legs and a strappy sandal can be very glamorous. Finish off either look with an appropriate hat.

Camisoles can be lovely when worn as tops or shells. Try one layered under a sharp skirt suit. The femininity of the cami will soften the intensity of the suiting and provide a nice pop of color and texture. They can also add sex appeal to the menswear styles so prevalent in contemporary fashion these days. Try a lace one under a boyfriend cardigan, or a cute floral number paired with overalls.
