Now you can wear your suits and not look like a boring old banker – no offence. Instead of crowding the runways with peek-a-boo/lingerie pieces, designers are redistributing the sex appeal into opaque fabrics with the help of exposed underwire. That’s right, that metal part of your bra, which probably annoys the f-out of you, is quickly becoming fashion’s hero piece.
Why? Because it can take something like a boring turtleneck and turn it into the sexiest thing you’ve ever owned. Dion lee showed us how it’s done, and there were even a few blazers (probably not so suitable for work) with underlined boobs.
Leather trench coats were given the sexy makeover, too at Alexander Wang. Nina Ricci, Helmut Lang, off white – the list of designers on board with the underwire trend goes on and on.
Some styles that the boob string plays in include: Black structured under bust bodysuit; Shirt Cutout Bodysuit: Lingerie brand Fleur du Mal created this ultra-sexy collared shirt; Ruched Cotton V-neck Corseted Blouse: The Corset waist on this blouse sits high up to outline the bust area; Lowe Dress: Even party dresses are getting the underwire treatment.
Others include the Cropped leather Top; the Cutout Shoulder Bomber; an the Adakin Dark Grey Rib Knit Jersey Bodysuit.
Enough talk. Check out how to style this trend in the slides above.
