Lingerie Act

I love these lingerie-type tops and I own a few, but lately I've been struggling with how to wear them. Then I saw Claire from Faboo wearing a bustier and I loved how she styled it. She put a similar colored top underneath the bustier and wore it with high-waisted pleated pants and a jacket.

So I did something similar with my red lingerie camisole with the black lace trim. I put a black tank under it to raise the neckline a bit and tucked the bottom into loose-fitting pleated pants. I wore the sweater partly buttoned at work to cover the lace detailing on the trim and cups while still allowing the red color and fabric to show. After work, I wore the sweater unbuttoned while out for drinks.
