Hello, I’m Simone Parker from Ma Belle Allure. I hope you are enjoying our collaboration with Toowoomba boutique, Florence and Marabel, this time showing you how to style the lingerie trend. The lingerie trend is gaining momentum but if the idea of wearing something that looks like your PJs out in public terrifies you, don’t panic as there are some clever styling tips to help you negotiate this trend.
Team your lingerie piece with other items. Cara is wearing a loose fitting satin striped pant. A piece like this can be teamed with a khaki singlet and then a long line coat. The combination of satin and cotton makes this a more wearable trend. This look would also suit a column body shape as it gives you a waist. If you have a troublesome tummy, try wearing a looser blouse long enough to cover your tummy and wear it over the waist of your pants. The longline jacket will also help camouflage your tummy. The oversized collar of the jacket will help balance a wider bottom half. Triangles body shapes can also add a top with sleeves instead of a singlet. This will visually widen your shoulders making your proportions seem more balanced. A neutral shoe works with these pants because they are similar in tone, this make your legs appear longer and doesn’t visually cut your legs at your ankles. Finally, this great tote bag incorporates the khaki and navy tones but adds a pop of colour from the inner lining.
Gabby is wearing a silky pants with zip detail pockets. The legs in these pants are loose and flattering if you have athletic legs or if you are heavy through the hips and thighs. A silky blouse in the same colour is teamed with the pant to create a long lean silhouette. The button opening on the neckline shows a bit of skin which flatters most bust sizes. So that this doesn’t look like PJs we have added a great long line jacket in a textured cotton. The jacket can be worn closed, or open as we have done showing off the eyelet and ties, drawing the eye away from your bustline and down towards your lean legs. To break up the monochrome of this outfit we have added a great pair of animal print ankle boots and a fabulous black clutch with animal print tassel. Once again we have worked with only 3 colours for this look and coordinated the animal print of the shoes with the tassel on the clutch. This keeps the look on trend and just a little bit edgy and alluring.
