Spring 2016 Trend #4: Lacy Lingerie

There was a lot of nakedness on the runway this season. This is not really our thing here at RLS but stay with us for a few paragraphs. This spring, designers got in touch with their romantic side by featuring lacy details and sheer fabrics. We first noticed the trend when Vogue highlighted the below picture for spring. The models, shown in order wearing Celine, Burberry, Gucci, Givenchy, Calvin Klein Collection, and Etro, prove that the big name designers truly embraced slinky silk and satin for their spring collections.

However, this is Real Life Style. We’re not sending our clients and readers out into the world in their nightgowns. We believe the key to pulling off this trend is to cover up. Layering and more layering will turn this look from bare and naked to fashion-forward and fun!

When you think of lingerie-styled clothing, you probably picture sexy combinations of black, blush, nude, and ivory. To keep your slip-dress from looking too much like just a slip, choose a bright color, like this coral-pink silk Equipment dress. Cover up by layering a long-sleeve tee under the dress and tossing a biker jacket on top. This is a show-stopping outfit for a summer concert or date.

Our favorite layer for spring (as we’ve said many times) is the vest. A closed vest over the silk camisole is an appropriate layer for the spring and summer. When you get to your dinner destination, you can unzip and show off your pretty tank.
