PFW: Bras Are The New Tops

I came back from Paris late last Thursday night, and I still don't think I'm back on NYC time yet. But regardless of how I feel now, I must share my favorite looks from Paris Fashion Week. The common theme amongst them: bras as tops. Also some camisole-esque dresses and more sheer things. And nipples.

I have to start with Chanel because you know I'm a hardcore devotée, but also this post has so many pictures I need to make sure you'll look at the most important, which is Chanel. Anyway, loved the easy-breezy-ness of the looks, including the hair and makeup. Every model had her own thang happening, and all the looks were so different. I was totally digging how dressed up some of the looks were, while others were beach-ready.

I'll be honest, I probably wouldn't have looked at Sonia Rykiel but I had to look since this was Julie de Libran's first collection. And wow. So youthful, easy, and ranged from pretty to edgy. Loved all the criss-cross bra tops under the boxy jackets, and how versatile the tops went with different bottoms. Key here: leather. Also, the sheer dress as seen on Kendall Jenner.

For the gal who wants to look sexy and tell Instagram to go eff-off. Nipples abounded, which were the perfect complement to an über-dramatic cat-eye. The sheer black stockings were totally necessary to reign in the looks from "street walker" to "street style". Like seriously though, no one can do platform sandals, stockings, and a leather bustier in one outfit like the Saint Laurent girl.

MFW: Shades of Sheer

If we judge from the collections shown during Milan Fashion Week, it seems like it's a continuing affirmation of the NY collections that designers want women in sheer everything next spring/summer. And the concept is exciting—the thought of reprieve from humid NYC temps, plus it gives lingerie bloggers like me so much material to work with (no pun intended). The creative-appreciator/blogger side of me is jumping for joy, but the practical side has me shaking my head. Has corporate life changed me that much? But honestly, how can I run around NYC (or Paris) showing off my undies for the sake of the seasons' trends?

Milan collections seemed to go from sheer to sheerer. Below, select looks from a few designers to give you some ideas of what you may see next spring. Some are instagram-friendly, but most aren't—until IG drops their nipple ban, that is.

FENDI: Sheer skirts and slashed tops. Bandeau bras & crop tops to show off that midriff you'll be working on all winter. Also, super pretty floaty organza dresses that have nothing to do with this theme but Binx Walton looked so pretty in it that I had to post.

BLUMARINE: More sheer skirts and pretty embroidery & appliqué details.

MSGM: More sheer skirts and funky embroidery details.

PORTS 1961: Sheer skirts again—and sheer cropped pants(!), longline bra tops under sheer tops.

NO. 21: Sheer overlay on shorts (curveball), but still sheer skirts (of courses), and nip-slippable crop tops.

ALBERTA FERRETTI: Sheer skirts and dresses with pretty embroidery details. And harnesses!

Milan Fashion Week: Lingerie Inspirations at Jil Sander F/W '12

Yep, it was Raf Simons' final collection for Jil Sander and it was pretty sweet, clean and full of lingerie inspired details that I loved. Bustier shapes, kimono robe silhouettes, bra-like keyholes in dresses—these were some of my favorites (and the coats are gorgeous. So gorgeous).
