Turn your wardrobe inside out as alternative lingerie makes for a stylish change, and becomes one of the most eye catching accessories to adorn. Lingerie as outerwear is nothing new, but a selection of alternative designers have been taking classic pieces like garters, bodysuits and bras, and turning them into something entirely different, creating a stylish and unique alternative look.
Taking a piece of staple lingerie and wearing it as stylish outerwear isn’t exactly new, we’ve been wearing corsets over our alternative attire for decades now, but in recent years it’s taken a new direction, as we’ve taken to wearing body harnesses, stylish bras, and corselettes as outerwear, whether it’s layered on top of our outfits, or worn alone as part of a striking piece of clubwear, alternative lingerie has certainly become the most stylish accessory that you can adorn!
The trend for wearing alternative lingerie as outerwear has certainly stepped up a notch of late, with talented alternative designers, like our very own sellers, Tempest and Serenity, and ROHMY, taking classic lingerie designs and turning them into something entirely new, whether it’s a leather body harness to wear over your favourite latex dress, or a striking ropework body suit to complete your look, alternative lingerie can add an entirely new look to your favourite outfit, as well as creating a striking, eye catching look that looks great both on and off the dancefloor.
It’s not just for fetishwear, or daring clubwear outfits though, alternative lingerie can add a unique touch to any look, from wearing a simple garter belt over a skirt to layer up your outfit, or wearing a simple body harness over a plain top to create a striking look.
However you choose to wear the lingerie as outerwear trend, you can create an entirely new look with a few staple pieces of alternative lingerie. An incredibly easy way to wear this alternative trend is to take a classic garter belt and layer it over an a-line or pencil skirt, it looks great when wearing a contrasting colour.
Layer up items, by wearing torn tights and stockings with a pair of these leg harnesses by Tempesta Couture, they look great when worn with an oversized top for a punk inspired look. Body harnesses are another great way to layer up this look, try this leather body harness with o rings by Tempest and Serenity, or this bold body cage harness by Zolnar, both look great worn over bold latex dresses, or body suits.
A striking way to wear the lingerie as outerwear trend is with a bold statement piece, this ropework bodysuit by ROHMY is just perfect for this look, wear it over pleather leggings with a vest top for an incredibly stylish alternative look.
An incredibly easy way to recreate the lingerie as outerwear look is with a simple bralette top, wear it over your outfit to create an instantly stylish look, pieces like this Miss Net bralette by Agoraphobix are perfect for this look.
