Underwear as outerwear

Lingerie was all over the catwalks for SS/10, and not just on Victoria Secrets. A lot of designers used underwear as outerwear, for instance Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbanna and Antonio Berardi. They've all done so very elegantly, by keeping the colours neutral and giving it a soft look, rather than a trashy one. The key is to pair a silk camisole with trousers and long jackets, so that you don't bare too much. Keep the make-up to a minium as to avoid looking more Courtney Love than old Hollywood (There's nothing wrong with looking like Courtney by the way, just make sure you know what signals you are sending out.)

But for partying you can go all out. I love the L.A-look that's popped up on a lot of streetstyle-blogs the last year. Black lace, bodys, dark make-up and messy hair, paired with a fake furcoat. That's how I wanna party this winter.
