Underwear as Outerwear

The Acne Studios fashion show at the Paris Observatory featured an array of underwear as outerwear looks. Some notable styles included a sheer dress with a visible lace bra, briefs worn as shorts and a transparent gauze set of shirt and pants worn with a long overcoat.

Jersey panties featured prominently in the Miu Miu line, while Loewe showed off ribbed briefs. Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham took the opportunity to experiment with materials and textures ranging from metallics to knitted underwear.

Bralettes Under Mesh Tops

One of the most accessible lingerie styles pairs a long-line bralette with a mesh top. This style can offer a comfortable approach to showing off underwear, as a mesh layer provides some coverage, while a bralette offers more coverage than most bras.

You can also wear a bra under a sheer, loose-knit or mesh top to balance revealing lingerie with light and breathable coverage. This style was also frequently spotted at New York Fashion Week, which indicates that lingerie-inspired designs are poised to take the world by storm.

Garter Belts as Pants

Another iconic look from the Acne Studios show paired an oversized sweater with thigh-high stockings and garter belts. This ensemble builds on a longstanding trend of wearing long sweaters or tunics with leggings and makes the silhouette more lingerie-forward.

These and other vintage lingerie styles are on trend for 2024. High-waisted organic cotton underwear worn as shorts offer another stylish approach to lingerie-inspired bottoms. Several designers at Paris Fashion Week featured briefs, hipsters and boyshorts in their collections.

Sheer Dresses and Visible Undies

Many shows during Paris Fashion Week featured sheer dress styles for spring and summer 2024. This style was prominently featured at Givenchy, where models wore sheer wrap dresses and slip skirts with visible briefs underneath.

Consider wearing a bralette, plunge bra or unlined minimizer bra that matches or stands out under a sheer outfit. You may prefer to wear a matching set of underwear or go wild with separates as bold accent pieces.

Layered Lingerie

A number of designers presented lingerie with other garments tucked in or layered intimate pieces over other clothing. One of the most low-key ways to wear lingerie is under an open button-up sweater, jacket or coat. This approach to styling intimate pieces can keep you cozy and create contrast with barely-there styles.

All of these lingerie looks are on trend for 2024, especially as the weather gets warmer. Wearing a coat or jacket over lingerie can make this revealing trend more comfortable in late winter and early spring. No matter how you want to wear lingerie, you can find comfortable ways to show off stylish bras and underwear.
