It's not a new concept by any stretch of the imagination but underwear as outerwear fits in perfectly with the body-con trend and it's a great way to layer. The golden rule is to remember to err on the side of modesty, as you want to display your fashion credentials, not your er, physical credentials.

My favourite is the VPL bra from La Garçonne, wear it over a top with jeans or leggings, add some style to a dress or use it to cover up your rude bits over a sheer top. The thick schoolmarm straps ensure you wont look tacky and the subtle colour combination is very Marni-esque. LOVE. See after the jump for product details.
