Wearing Lingerie as Outerwear

Wearing Lingerie as Outerwear

You know the feeling of slipping on your favourite pieces of lingerie in the evening. Immediately, you feel a shift in the way that you carry yourself. Lingerie just gives that little extra boost to your confidence, making you look in the mirror and think, “Wow, I’m looking good.”

So why should that feeling be reserved for the nighttime? Lingerie is highly versatile and can be matched with other items in your wardrobe for sophisticated looks for daytime and nights out. Don’t hide that feel-good piece at home – it’s time to bring that confidence out of the house!

So, what do you wear with your lingerie and when should you wear it? Here are our favourite outfit selections that feature lingerie as outerwear.


One of our favourite weekend pastimes is catching up with friends over brunch. Lingerie can bring a little extra flirtation to a put-together brunch outfit. We personally love the look of a camisole or tank top peeking out from one of your favourite blouses. This is perfect for those who are toying with the idea of lingerie as outerwear for the first time, as it is a subtle way of showing off your favourite pieces. A pair of culottes is the perfect choice for a brunch bottom. These pants upgrade any look while providing unparalleled comfort and fit.

We love the simplicity of the Dylan Urban Silk Tank Top under blouses and tops, paired with the Dylan Urban Silk Culottes – these pieces are the perfect complement to your Sunday morning mimosa!

A Night on The Town

Whether its after-work drinks with your best friend or your cousin’s bachelorette party, a silky garment can make you stand out during a night on the town. A chemise can double as a stylish dress. Show off some leg and match your chemise with a statement necklace and a pair of heels. We also love the look of a bright chemise with dark pantyhose and booties.

For a simple yet fun look, try out the Dylan Urbane Chemise in Midnight Blue. There are so many ways to accessorize this versatile piece.

Date Night

You might be used to wearing lingerie under your clothes on a date… but what about showing it off for the entire night? A silk gown or slip is alluring enough to make your date feel special just by being in your presence while remaining classy enough for the fanciest restaurant. You can dress the slip up or down according to the date night. Pair it with a jean jacket for a casual brewery date or stilettos for a birthday or anniversary celebration.

One of our favourite date night outfits is the Dylan Urban Silk Chemise in Champagne. This classic piece is sure to impress whether you’re on your first date or have been together for years.

Going to a show

When you’re headed to a show, you want to make sure that you’re feeling your best so you can fully enjoy the performance you’re about to experience. You don’t need to make it too fancy – in fact, you can easily make your nightwear a part of the experience! A nightshirt or pajama shirt French-tucked into a pair of trousers, or high-waisted jeans makes for an effortless, put-together look. You’ll be feeling fresh and ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

For a crisp pop of colour, try the Peony Blooms PJ Set. You can either tuck it in for a jumpsuit-like aesthetic, or pair the top with leggings and wedges for a more casual affair.

Casual Get Together

You don’t have to save your lingerie for special occasions; it can just as easily be dressed down as it can be dressed up! A camisole goes with so many staple pieces in your wardrobe. We love to pair it with skinny pants and a cardigan for a casual, comfortable look – perfect for games night or binge-watching session with friends.

Add a pop of pattern to your neutral staples with the Peony Blooms Silk Lounge Top or keep it simple with the  Dylan Urban Silk Camisole.
