Underwear as Outerwear: The Floral Body

Without a job I can't by myself a lovely new spring wardrobe so quite a lot of my clothes are dark wintery colours. So in an attempt to get a little more springy I have been trying to team up some of my darker bits i.e. black jeans, with some spring floral bright colours. But lacking in floral/spring tops as well as everything else I turned to my underwear drawer..

Jeans - Asos 
Body - M&S
Jacket - Levis 
Sunglasses - Topshop 
Boots - Doc Martens
Belt - Asos

Excuse the stupid faces - It was seriously sunny!

So this M&S body I came across in my Look Magazine subscription's Valentines edition 2014 I think, so it is fairly old. If you haven't gathered by now I have a massive love of pretty underwear, matching sets etc. And once I had seen this in the magazine I was sold and had to immediately go searching for it. I literally mean searching, I went to the Brighton store, the one back in Gravesend (my hometown) and then in Bluewater - it was nowhere to be seen. But thank God it came back online in my size and I snatched it up asap!
Sooooo glad I did, I love it. I have worn it once or twice before as outerwear but that was more of a night out situation not daytime like I am here. But I plucked up the courage to do it and I personally really love this look. 

I know some people may completely disagree or just dislike the idea of wearing your underwear out but that kind of thing doesn't really bother me, if you will go out in a normal body, little bralet style top why not use your underwear drawer as another place to go searching through for your perfect outfit. 

Anyway, I thought because of the black background with the bright pink flowers on top I thought this would be perfect to be able to team up with some of my darker clothes but still keeping an element of spring/summer about it.
I ended up going a bit half and half summery top half and wintery on the bottom, resulting in this grungey look. But I really love it. 

What do you think? Would you wear underwear as outerwear??

  1. I like the underwear as outerwear trend as long as the underwear doesn't really look like underwear, if that makes sense. This floral piece is perfect because it could easily be a sheer top! Love how you toughened it up with your jeans and docs :)
