With sheer chiffon and lace being more on trend than ever, items we traditionally would save for the boudoir can now double as street fashion. Pair these sexy pieces with things you already have in your wardrobe (think blazers or cardis) for a subtly sultry ensemble.
Yummie Tummie Roma Lace Tank, $78
Shapewear shouldn’t be something to cover up, and this gorgeous tank from Yummie Tummie is the perfect example. With a slimming torso and pretty lace straps, you can totally get away with wearing this tank on its own or under a tailored jacket-no muffin tops in site with this top!
Affinitas Allison Convertible Bustier in Black, $65
This bustier is so smooth and streamlined that it hardly looks like lingerie at all. It’s full length so you can wear it at night as a flirty tube top with jeans or under a sheer top or sweater for day.
Brulee Vamp Cami, $124
Brulee’s silk cami with chiffon trim is the perfect top for a jeans and heels outfit. It comes in gorgeous colors and also looks great with black pants or a skirt.
OnGossamer Triple Twist Mesh Maxie Wild Kingdom, $69
This “nightie” is just too cute to be worn to bed. We think it makes an excellent beach cover-up or summer sundress when paired with leather sandals and some cool bangles. It’s even in an on-trend “midi” length (think shorter than a true maxi).
Hanky Panky Signature Long-sleeved Top, $48
All-over lace is a little edgy and a little romantic at the same time. Wear this crew neck top with a cami underneath, or if you’re a little more daring, just a bandeau or bra.
During Fashion Week it’s easy to get side-tracked with celeb sightings, crazy street style and after parties! The shows and presentations are a big production and what they are really all about is forecasting next season’s trends! We saw a ton of chic looks and put together our list of the biggest trends for Fall Winter 2012. From feminine menswear and fabulous furs, to sophisticated cut outs and sensual pleats, we can’t wait for another fall to arrive!
Pining away for the new Dior lace open-toe bootie but not willing—or able!—to plunk down $1,850? Try Betsy Johnson’s “Alison” bootie! With characteristic Betsy Johnson flare, these booties work the fancy and fun look but won’t empty your bank account. What they will do? Make all your friends envious of your trendy footwear. With lace cut-away lining, a leather sole, and a cute lace-up front, you’re on trend—and on budget.—Taylor Napolitano
