TOPSHOP body | ERES balconette bra | M&S french knickers | KIKI DE MONTPARNASSE lace bra | UO halter bra
I haven't bought any new lingerie in several months and my underwear drawer is crying out for some new lace, so putting together this lust list came naturally for me.
Lace bodies seem to be trending in the underwear world, I see them everywhere. I particularly like this black mesh number from Topshop with lace inserts. I'm obsessed with the idea of wearing a body beneath a tuxedo suit as a sultry evening option.
I love blush/rose/dusty pink shades in sheer fabrics so I had to include two options: a simple sheer balconette from Eres and a delicate halter bra by Kiki de Montparnasse.
These "french knickers" from the Rosie Huntington-Whitely collection for M&S are a gorgeous nightwear option, despite their slightly misleading name. They also come with a matching cami, but I'd be tempted to pair them with a soft cup bra in hot weather. The design also reminds me of these H&M shorts which I'm on the fence about, but could look incredible with knitwear.
Finally I had to include this lace halter bra from Urban Outfitters, which has a wider strap than the Kiki de Montparnasse one, but still has an aesthetically pleasing effect. They come in a variety of colours and I love the idea of pairing it with high waisted wide leg trousers this summer.
What are your thoughts on underwear as outerwear? I'm definitely going to be donning a few slip dresses and the UO halter bra and trousers combo is quickly becoming a necessity.
