The lingerie trend is back,  and how can you work it in your outfit to be trendy.  The slip dress was made famous by Versace,  and now is a classic statement essential.  Lingerie basically means clinging and sheer fabric like lace,  net,  chiffon and satin.  These are considered sexy and the trend is to be subtly sexy in a sophisticated manner. 
So lets look at individual pieces and how to wear them variedly :

1. Camisoles : the most used and popular lingerie item which has made its way to evening wear.  Mostly of satin and lace with thin straps.  Plain,  printed some even come in printed Georgette the most common being animal print.  Easy to be paired with jeans for a clubbing night or palazzo’s in the summer.  Pair with jackets and shrugs for chilly evenings. For work,  wear it under your business suits,  but the neck shouldn’t be too deep or it shouldn’t really look like inner wear.  One way to wear it casually is also under t-shirt’s as tanks.

2. Slip dresses : worn with jackets in basic black and white but now their trimmings and material is also used in midi and maxi dresses.  Mostly made of satin,  and look good with structured jackets or even see through net dresses or jackets.  My favourite is the lace showing from underneath a chiffon dress.

3. Sports bras: use them as undershirts for off shoulder tops they give a nice playful flirty feel. Under crop tops,don’t just wear them as one.They are sporty, add colour and support and fun at the same time.

4. Bralettes : Victoria Secrets summer campaign was all about the lace bralette as a crop top. With one product they targeted 2 things in one, quite the best seller. For the desi girl get a nice one to use as a sexy saree blouse quite a turn from the traditional cholis and bikini blouse. Nice colours, support and sexy lace and you will be quite a show stopper.

5. Under skirts : the skirt version of the slip dress, lace and hosiery normally worn under flimsy dresses. Wearing just them could be a little riske’ but under a see through lace or net dress could add colour and sultriness to a monotone outfit.One can also wear them under short tunic tops to add some length and lace.

6. Fringes : adding elements of lingerie like lace and satin can also add sexiness and the trendy lingerie effect.
Lingerie is just not restricted to under clothes or the boudoir anymore. It has become a part of our wardrobe, even if in a small way. Trends come and go, and this has come back in a bigger way especially since sheer and lace has been in since the last season. So get some sexy camisoles and start using them as shells to up the notch on your style quotient. One mistake that can be made is making it your outfit becoming too sexy,so be careful remember subtleness is the key to being alluring.
