Want to explore wearing lingerie as fashionable outerwear without exposing your bra? Robes are a great place to start.
Dressier than a cardigan, less fussy than a blazer, slinky robes add personality to all kinds of outfits. Going out for drinks? Top your favorite skinny jeans and sky-high stilettos. Romantic dinner date? Slide on over a skimpy slip dress. Hosting a cocktail party? Break out the wide legged trousers and silk camisole.
For A/W 2015 there are two main trends, colorful patterns, and sheers. Patterns show your individuality and are great conversation starters. Wondering what to wear to that art gallery? A wildly printed robe is sure to turn heads. This season you’ll see dip dye ombre effects, kaleidoscopic prints, graphic florals, and designs that look like they could hang on a gallery wall.
Not into showy statement pieces? Then play with sheers in this season’s biggest color trends, blue and black. Designed to show off some skin, sheer robes read more as “lingerie” and are a seductive choice for evening soirees. They can go sophisticated with a sleek pencil skirt, or flirty with cropped cigarette pants. If you’re more daring, you might pair them with a bustier or lacy camisole.
These 12 standout pieces are too beautiful to keep under wraps. So flaunt the season’s biggest trends (and your individual sense of style).
