Lingerie as Outerwear - Christmas Party Outfits

Christmas is coming, so that means it's party season. In come the invitations to work dos, family get-togethers and reuniting with old friends to welcome in the festive season. All of these leave you asking: "what shall I wear?" Well, we're making it easier for you by putting together the cutest Christmassy outfits, all featuring Playful Promises designs for you to incorporate. Forget cheesy Christmas jumpers and flashing earrings (although no shade if that's your thing!) Here's 5 outfit tips & ideas to help you out:


Shake up your textures

We're all a bit guilty of heading straight to black clothes when we're not sure what else to wear. With this outfit you can still do that, but you can mix it up with different textures for a more interesting look! The Roxy Bodysuit is an ideal winter piece on account of it's velvet devore and mesh, it'll keep you cosy and feeling sassy. Pair it with a PVC skirt, and it's fringed choker for another layer of super-cool texture.

Simply sparkle

Sequins & gems are a Christmas party staple. The Show Time bodysuit is dazzlingly bright and sparkly, and perfect for getting noticed. With something so sparkly, you can dress it with something simple like a plain tennis skirt. If you're feeling extra, wear glittery earrings and jewelled tights too!

Clash colours with patterns

If sparkly isn't your thing, wearing a daring print with a brightly coloured longline bra is another sure-fire way to get noticed. We love the almost rockabilly-style look of the leopard print and Bettie Page Longline Overwire Bra together with some cute earrings. Wear with our seamed stockings to finish the look.

Sexy & chic

Basques are a daring way to incorporate lingerie into your outfit, and the Carlota is ideal for that! The black dot mesh makes it easy to pair with anything, but we chose a tartan pencil skirt to look a little more eye-catching and festive. Top with a fluffy beret to keep your head warm and looking adorable over this otherwise sultry outfit.

Retro glamour

A vintage-lingerie inspired LBD and a floor length robe is a killer look when combined, and it's so simple to put together! The Leopard Print Robe makes any outfit look glamorous. Pair with vinyl heels and red lipstick to fully channel your inner femme fatale.
