GIVE wholesale halloween costumes ‘EM THE SLIP: THIS FALL, UNDERWEAR BECOMESOUTERWEAR
Marilyn Monroe did it first, swimwear manufacturer China wearing a suitcase-worth of sexy lingerie in 1959s Some Like It Hot. More recently, Nicole Kidman wore an emerald-green slip from Agent Provocateur in her enormous Vogue spread.
Now, wholesale swimwear Manhattan scenesters are finally catching on to the look, wearing lace linens, silk slips and naughty nighties and negligees as casual daywear and elegant dresses for evening. You can wear the sensual garments solo, or just throw on a pair of jeans underneath to take the edge off.
Victorias Secret has some stunning, floral merrywidows that look great with a pair of jeans. Or you can always count on cutesy Betsey Johnson shirts and Miguelinas silk, lace dresses (J.Lo is a huge fan) that err on the side of
sexy, not slutty.
Simply silky: Maria DeMedariaga is all dolled up in her charcoal Alberta Ferretti silk negligee, Seven jeans and Prada pumps.
Bright side: Stella Yang looks like a scrumptious piece of bubblegum in her Betsey Johnson blue-and-pink lace top, and yellow Bisou Bisou corduroy pants.
Classic girl: Jessica Cole did some digging in her grandmothers attic for her lingerie style slip, then tied it into a shirt and paired it with a JCrew denim skirt and bright yellow shoes from Shelleys in London.
Very Victorian: Not many women can get away with a white corset as well as Shantell Richardson, who pairs it with a long cardigan, a jean skirt, sandals and a dainty flower in her hair.
