Peek-a-boo is elegant thanks to sheer fabrics, intricate cut-outs, midriff-baring separates.
Underwear becomes sophisticated outerwear with the peek-a-boo effect. This look is all about layering. Get the under layer right and it will make all the difference.
Camis, singlets, and petticoats are all designed to let you decide how much is ‘peek’ and how much is ‘boo’. Underwear is called a foundation garment for a reason. If the foundations are right you can build something sensational. Bralettes and camis come into their own as foundation pieces for the peek-a-boo trend. Sheer fabrics take a little bit more extra thought than your average top.
Be prepared like a boy scout with a good selection of simple layering items. Don’t be afraid of cut-outs. More often than not the designer has positioned them in just the right place to be flattering and even forgiving. Be sure to try them on before you dismiss them. Sheer items are perfect for layering. Try an all tulle, all mesh or all lace top under a shoestring dress or cami and voila you are picture perfect. Lace and tulle are the perfect counterparts to new utility and oversize. Ultra-feminine meets masculine. There is nothing like bending the rules of fashion.
