Undressed to Kill

As if in defiance of winter’s chill, fashion is turned inside out this month as lingerie-inspired looks turn up the heat on the street. The strongest trend saw sheer blouses, lacy tops and skirts playing peekaboo with camisoles, brassieres, bustiers and French knickers.

Other boudoir babes rocked it a step further—one dressed up a full-length asymmetric silk slip dress with a matching duster coat; another removed the top half altogether, simply shrugging a jacket over her bustier.

The way to work this trend (because you don’t want to appear as if you’ve just rolled out of bed) is to keep your grooming immaculate and accessorize with an edge: Gothic lips, metallic detailing, killer heels, eye-catching jewelry and statement bags will maintain a little decorum.
