      Top 10 | Valentine’s Day Lingerie Sets

      Top Ten Valentine’s Day Lingerie Sets We figured we should probably talk about Valentine’s Day. It’s just… we don’t really want to. Seriously: unless this is your first time on the internet (In which case, welcome, and don’t look any further – this is the only site you’ll ever need…),…

      VAlentine's day lingerie

      Screw Valentine’s Day: let’s buy some lingerie!

      Valentine’s Day lingerie from Dirty Pretty Things Valentine’s Day. There’s just no escaping it, is there? Every year, as soon as Christmas is over (and actually, sometimes even BEFORE Christmas is over…) The Fashion Police inbox starts to get flooded with press releases about Valentine’s Day, which, these helpful missives…

      underwear as outerwear

      Underwear as Outerwear: the Venus bustier

      This is the ‘Venus’ bustier. As you can see, they’re using the word “bustier” in its loosest possible sense, because, as far as we can make out, this is just an excuse to go out in public wearing just your bra. It’s a NICE bra, granted, but honestly, we’ve had…

      fringed waistcoat

      Citizen’s Arrest: Lascivious Kasia Fringed Waistcoat

      Our thanks go to Fashion Police reader Caroline for calling in this particular crime of fashion. Now, ordinarily we don’t involve ourselves with lingerie. (Er, we’re assuming this is supposed to be lingerie. These days you can never really tell, though, can you?) After all, as long as people aren’t…

      YSL stretch-chiffon body suit

      Extreme sheer: YSL stretch-chiffon halterneck bodysuit

      We’re a-hoping and a-praying that this bodysuit will only ever be used for purpose: as an underpinning for a backless halterneck dress. But that little shred of doubt loiters in the back of our minds, knowing, as we do, that the Lady Gagas of this world have so little respect…

      Norma Kamali lace bikini

      Style On Trial: Swimwear that looks like underwear

      So you’re languishing on the beach, and a girl walks past in her underwear.  Only she’s not in her underwear, she’s wearing a bikini by Norma Kamali that looks like underwear, but isn’t. We like the overall style of the bikini – the shape is so lovely and retro and…

      denim-lingerie-from-Topshop

      Denim lingerie? Er, yes please!

      Here at The Fashion Police, we’ve always been of the opinion that denim is best kept for jeans only: and, OK, maybe the odd jacket or two, if we’re feeling in a Blossom kinda mood. We’ve also always been kinda fickle, though, and this month we’re surprised to admit that…

      expensive-underwear

      Christie’s $959 lingerie set: worth it?

      Well, it sure is pretty… but is it $959 worth of “pretty”? We’ll let you be the judge of that one: while The Fashion Police are partial to the odd piece of extravagant underwear, the fact that it’s hidden underneath our clothes (or quickly discarded, in the case of the…

      pubic-hair-underwear

      The Hairy Underwear Collection, by Nutty Tarts

      We’re telling you, kids, anything goes these days in the world of fashion. Seriously, not only can you now wear your pubic hair ON TOP OF your knickers, you can also apparently wear your knickers on top of your tights. And that’s not all you can do…

      Alexander Wang sheer pants

      Style on Trial: Alexander Wang chiffon lingerie pants

      As if the harem pant weren’t controversial enough, Alexander Wang has taken it a step further making it sheer. These chiffon lingerie pants, $450, are a bit confusing. The subtle paper-bag waist, slouchy silhouette and not-too-baggy harem-ness of the pants actually start to convince us that the style is actually…

      River Island mesh and lace body

      River Island mesh and lace strappy body

      Yes.  Quite. We were speechless too when we saw this on the River Island website.  This appears to be a black lace lingerie set, held together with a section of black mesh.  Whilst we have just about got our heads around the return of the bodysuit for this season, we…

      The Snuggie Suit

      Introducing the Snuggie Suit!

      Far be it for us to try and police what people choose to wear in the comfort of their own homes, so all we’ll say about the Snuggie Suit pictured above is this: it exists. Please don’t be tempted to wear it in public. The Snuggie Suit is $24.99 at…

      forever-21-bras

      Underwear as Outerwear: Sequined and beaded bras from Forever 21

      Confession: these items were actually reported to us by a reader, whose name we’ve lost, so if that was you, thank you! If these bras had been intended to be worn as lingerie, we wouldn’t have given them a second thought. Well, other than to think, “Ooh, someone’s clothes are…

      retro-lingerie

      Wanted! Retro-style lingerie from Topshop

      Sequined knickers aside, Topshop actually has some fabulous pieces of actual lingerie in stock at the moment: think longline bras, high-waisted knickers, lace corsets – lingerie with a vaguely retro feel that looks good, but, more importantly, will help create a nice, smooth line under your clothes and, in the…

      sequin-knickers

      Would you wear…big sequined knickers? (And not as lingerie)

      More and more often these days we find ourselves heaving a sigh and muttering, “Lady Gaga has a lot to answer for” under our breaths… The last time this happened was just a few days ago, while your fashion force were conducting an undercover raid on Topshop. As we browsed…
