I want to talk about a hot trend at the moment — and that trend is LINGERIE!
That’s right! Bring out your PJs because pajamas are the new denim!
We’ve seen the lingerie dress on the catwalks of New York, Milan, and Paris and designers like Dolce and Gabbana, Céline, Givenchy, and Chloé have all showed us what lingerie couture is all about! But I want to know, can this look be something we’ll actually be able to pull this off in real life?
I’ve been dying to try this trend, but everything I’ve been seeing in the stores made me feel like it’s something you should be wearing at a sleepover party. You know, the ones that Mariah Carey throws. Hollywood celebs have jumped on the lingerie trend, with stars like Kim Kardashian, Irina Shayk, and Ciara making it more mainstream. I decided that I wanted to test out this trend, so I stepped into my closet and got creative.
After searching my PJ drawer, I didn’t feel like I could wear any one of my jammies out on the town. However, I did find a white lingerie slip dress that made me say AHA! The slip came with my Dolce & Gabbana lemon dress that you guys saw me wear to my daughter’s first birthday party.
Anyhow, I took the slip dress and tried it on. When I wore it on its own, I felt like it was a little inappropriate. I just didn’t feel like I could wear it out in LA while doing my coffee run on my way to work or to meetings.
I asked myself, what would Rachel Zoe do at this moment if she were styling a client? Her philosophy is all about making fashion show who you are, so I decided to make the lingerie dress very “me” by throwing on my Levi’s denim jacket. I am sure you guys have seen me wear this jacket many times. It’s my uniform and I’m OBSESSED with it.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many ways of doubling your slinky nightie as a cocktail dress. I feel like I have a couple of black ones that can be worn on it’s own or with a t-shirt as I did in the past.
Another way that I feel like you can ooze sophistication and sex appeal with the slinky slip dress is throwing a motorcycle jacket over your shoulders.
What do you guys think about this trend? Would you guys wear your PJs out?
