Hot panty, hot briefs!

Nanette Lepore

Below bear above is not a revolution. However, if the theme of the bra is more apparent as a novelty (thank you Madonna) appear in panty seem to be the new fad in fashion...

Also unusual and unlikely it is, this neo-exhibitionism needed just like a real trend.

Far from being an isolated event, we can easily trace the chronology of the new dress code: from the micro short of Kylie Minogue, then that of Rihanna, the boxer (for single low clothing ") made its appearance on the pop scene. Thereafter, lured by the idea of an embryo booster trend, some socialites have held their compound around a body or a panty ouvragé, all raised as naturally as the world opaque tights and shoe.
At this stage, the phenomenon could be anecdotal, if the recent fashion week came plebiscite were not wearing the pants shorty, making obsolete the micro shorts in favor of a thinking mode lingerie outside.

However, while the divas on this piece was intended to openly sexy and that modeuses VIP grant him a touch of extravagance assumed, the creators have decided to take against foot-and integrate panty - or panty emboîtante - within a certain style establishment.

On the podium, this tiny piece of fabric was wanted devilishly respectable. Marni he affixed a twin-set of the print and BCBG frigid tile, while Marc Jacobs combined a Japanese sage jacket, topped with a Parisian bibi. However, far from sexy reduce its value, to incorporate the panty to falsely classic looks give it a much more ambiguous than any subjective total look in résille / shorty / leather.

Therefore, the sexiness is no longer reserved for starlets aguicheuses, but can really afford its letters of nobility in the seductive elegance of this world who want to barter their tailleur Chanel for something more spicy.

Obviously, Mother Nature rarely the same person with the winning trio (silhouette dream / portfolio garni / taste) for the implementation of this trend, it surely does not exceed the parties banchées or glossy magazines.

Yet the panty has not said its final word...

Indeed, transparent chiffons and diaphanous fabrics are also in odor of sanctity, it is possible that mixer transparencies and panty make viable the two trends into one...

I love this trend - if executed well it can look simply stunning! I will admit I'm a little scared to see the tragedies that may occur by those not knowing how to pull off such a look.

I, being a guy myself, would love to work this trend myself - however I know Seattle could not handle that. I'm curious to see if, and how, guys could pull this off.
All the best,

Divine post, FM! I'm not sure which I covet more: these fabulous micro mini-short looks or the models' amazing legs!
My favorite boy shorts of the bunch are Marni, Chloe, Hermes and Alessandro Dell'Acqua - those lacy ones are scrumptious!



Well you need long and perfect legs to deal with this trend which is not my case... Too bad!
