Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Lingerie & Lace

Lingerie & Lace at Cynthia Steffe, Alexander Wang, and Herve Leger.

Style tip?  In 1990, Madonna introduced the world to underwear as outerwear with her iconic cone bra.  Twenty years later, lingerie is still inspiring the world of sportswear.  Case in point?  Alexander Wang’s lingerie-meets-tailored suit look, which mixes feminine lace with masculine fabrications and tailoring.  Then again, the lingerie influence need not be quite that overt.  Cynthia Steffe suggested frilly underthings with a fitted ivory dress full of tiny pleats.  And Herve Leger’s body conscious look merely outlined the bodice and skirt suggestively.  How to wear lingerie & lace inspired looks in real life?  We love the mix of masculine and feminine - a lacy cami under a structured blazer, a slip-type skirt with something more tailored up top.  The key is to suggest rather than to show.

What do you think?  How would you wear lingerie & lace inspired looks?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I love this concept and could definitely see myself wearing a lacey top wiht a subdued-color skirt and nude fishnets. Perfection!

    I think adorables the chemisette in satin or silk with delicate lace details in the neckline but to overlap with jacket, by example. The subtle sensuality is more elegant!
