Wearing underwear as outerwear does not require any special skills. All you need to do is pick the right underwear and let your creative juices flow.
Styling your underwear as outerwear
This can be totally fun, just play around with the looks till you find the ones you like.
As a slim girl (even though some of you have started calling me thick), I used to think I could get away with wearing just any type of underwear. I mean, I don’t have to get on that body positive movement because I’m not “fat”. WRONG. I was as insecure as the next girl, still bothered internally about part of my bones shooting out sharply etc.
Another thing is, all the body positive movements I’ve seen tend to focus more on curvy ladies. Honestly, we all need the movement, either slim or thick, skinny or curvy, we all need to be positive about our bodies. This is one thing I believe pretty underwear can also influence. Yes, body confidence is a state of mind but you would also feel better about your body if you are wrapped up in solid and pretty underwear. Underwear that you’ll be proud to show off to your girls because it makes you look so damn good.
This is what Brief Essentials hopes to push out there with their line of functional & gorgeous underwear. Wearing some of their underwear as outerwear is also quite easy because they have the prettiest pieces. Like I styled my lace bodysuit as outerwear in the last post, I’ll be showing you two easy ways to style a long line tube as outerwear.
Like I said, get your creative juices flowing. I paired the long-line tube with a number of items before settling on this look. I’ve been favoring miniskirts since last year, got this in December for a concert and even though it wasn’t this tiny then (blame my ever growing bum), it was still the best piece that helped me achieve the look I wanted with the oversized blazer, block heeled shoes and hose socks.
Long line tube with high waist pants, knitted beret & sneakers? Easy street style slay. Perfect for hot days and you can always wear a sleeveless kimono if you want it dressier.
Apart from their website, Brief essentials also has a physical store where you can go to shop and do your fittings. If you are not sure of your underwear size or you need to get the perfect fit of swimsuit they are your plug. Store is located at- 8b Dipo Awolesi Street, Magodo GRA 2, Lagos. The long-line tube costs N4500.
