The Little Black Bra

 

 

So we all know about the ‘Little Black Dress by now right – or the LBD as it’s most commonly known as. I mean, it is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. With the popularity of wearing lingerie as outerwear on the rise it’s only fitting that I introduce you to the ‘Little Black Bra’. Or as I like to call it LBB. I’ve always had a thing for lace, especially when it comes to lingerie. Lace is sexy, feminine, classy and most importantly comfortable. I especially love that the LBB is perfect for ladies like myself who are apart of the itty bitty titty committee. So this post goes out to you all. Growing up society had us ladies believing that lingerie is worn to please men – don’t me wrong, there is nothing wrong with wearing lingerie for that special someone. However, Ditta von Teese said it best “Lingerie is not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.” I couldn’t agree with her more. See my picks for some of the best little black bra styles out there.

Cozy Camo

Feeling a bit peachy in my oversized blazer for today’s look. Naturally we tend to wear warmer tones for Fall and put aside the brights until next season. Afterall, nothing says Fall like warmer earth tones, right! If you’re all for dressing for Fall to the T, a great way to incorporate some colour into your wardrobe is to go for powder dusted pieces, pieces that are pale versions of bright colours and anything that is slightly muted in colour. You can always incorporate your brights through your winter warm accessories, like your scarves, mitts and toques. Pairing this peach blazer with camo skinnies gave this look a slight grungy edge, which I then brought the girly side back by topping the look off with some barely there heels. Underneath the blazer I’m wearing an off-white light-weight sweater with a lace layering on the front. This gave the look some texture and layering.

7 WAYS TO WEAR CAMOUFLAGE

Besides leopard, camouflage is definitely my next print of choice. It’s a great way to add some badassness to your look – yes I just made that up. The great thing too about this print is that you can wear it all year round because it’s a timeless. It’s that kind of print that despite it not being on trend for one season, you will get away with wearing it anytime. Despite the actual meaning behind this print – blending in – in fashion the point is to stand out. On the other hand, this print is bold already, so no need to over do it too. See some looks I’ve pulled to get you in the mood for camo.

This babe is taking some major risks by pairing her camo pants with metallic platform wedges and we love it! Tip: By rolling the hem of your pants you create a very relaxed vibe in your look.

What a way to mix and match: leather mini, pointed toe pumps and topped off with a camo jacket is just too good.

When in doubt on how to wear prints, pair it with neutrals: blacks, whites, earth tones etc. Denim is also a great choice as this styler did here.

A stand out coat is the perfect cover-up and can be seen to onlookers as your actual outfit. If you’re having an off-day, throw on a great coat and voila – the coat becomes your outfit.

This is a great use of just enough print. The camo lined on the jacket is a great accent to complete this look.

Another great way to wear your camo is to pair it with some army green. This styler is armed in camo and can’t be beat.

Dressing like the boys and still looking feminine I’m all for. If you’re like me and you like to keep your fit on the looser side every once in a while, then this look is for you. To add that feminine touch, slip on some pumps and get on your way.
