Underwear as Outerwear

The well-loved underwear as outerwear trend opens up a world of never-before-considered opportunities to anyone’s wardrobe. The possibilities are endless; from cute and subtle, to bold, sassy statements and everything in between. Everyone owns underwear, so there’s no reason not to flaunt it and give this trend a whirl. Lingerie is so in that it’s out, ladies.

Bossing in bodysuits

Arguably the easiest place to start with this trend is a bodysuit, such as our much loved Eva body. This ‘go to’ body is designed to be seen, in any number of ways. It has daytime potential, paired with a dose of double denim action in a denim jacket and high waisted jeans combo. The brave amongst us can take it to the next level for the evening worn underneath a sheer dress, or opt for a little more coverage with leather-look trousers or a skirt.

Body’s are a definite head-turner and made for the girl who loves to make a statement with her fashion. Blogger-babe Cara bossed this trend by pairing our Eva body with a red co-ord and we’re obsessed!


What’s not to love? Probably the most comfortable lingerie option out there, bralettes are lightweight, soft and so easy to wear. In recent times, bralettes have become as much as a fashion accessory as they have a lingerie garment. Bralettes are certainly no longer exclusively for lazy, comfy Sundays.

Again, you can go from one end of the spectrum to the other with a good bralette. We’re slightly biased but you can’t go wrong with our Taylor Noir. It’s at its most versatile when layered subtly as part of your outfit. We’re talking pretty frills of lace peeking out from underneath low necklines on your shirts or slouchy knits. On the flipside, for evenings and nights out simply wear it as a crop top with high waisted trousers or a skirt. It’s longline design and cups to lift and support means you’ll feel the perfect amount of covered up and super sassy!

Knickers? As part of your outfit?!

Yes, you read that correctly – we can confirm that it is possible with the right pair of knickers! We were super inspired by Sarah who styled up our Phoenix Floral Brazilian knickers with an all-black look. The harness waist detail on these high waisted Brazilians makes them the perfect little-something-extra for an evening outfit.

With underwear as outerwear, it’s all about thinking beyond the bedroom. If you need some inspiration on working your lingerie into your outfit, head to our Instagram page @tuttirougelingerie. Our Tutti Rouge girls nail the trend every time and we’re always sharing their looks.
