Sheer Magic – Lingerie as outerwear

So yes, this little sheer number is a bit risqué to think of wearing outdoors (yet don’t ask me how many times I’ve seen it around NYC). I decided to try it myself and I’m pretty sure I still don’t have the courage to wear it out in public..but it made for some beautiful photography around the apartment.

The thing I learnt is that the magic lies in layering. If I throw on a sweater/shirt/jacket or pants with this look, then it instantly becomes more appropriate to wear out. We’ve been seeing this on and off the runway more and more recently and it seems we are re-inventing the idea of innerwear and outerwear…where the lines have converged. If I dare to wear it out, it will be in a great but simple balconette bra and high waisted panties and a nice leather jacket to juxtapose the lightness of the lace.

Would you dare to wear this out?
