We all love to indulge in some fancy underwear, but according to Debenhams’ latest research, wearing your underwear as outerwear is the latest trend.
B by Ted Baker has seen an uplift of 132% in the sales of printed chemises since May with the floral garden print chemise proving most popular. Other best sellers include camisole tops, skirt slips and lacy night dresses, which women are apparently incorporating into their work-wear.
Alain Mehada, head of Personal Styling at Debenhams gave this advice for people wanting to give this trend a go: “Try pairing a silk floral cami top with a pencil skirt and jacket for a chic glamourous look or pair a slip lace dress with a pretty cardigan. Elegant sleepwear such as soft silk printed pyjama tops paired with the right trousers is a classy style and can easily be translated to office-day wear. Sophisticated and suitable for work, this catwalk trend is a hit.”
Victoria Beckham looked great in a Louis Vuitton black lace slip dress at the Wimbledon this week. So you see, Superman isn’t the only one who can rock his underwear on the outside.
