Exposed Lingerie: Sexy or Skanky?

In this sweltering heat, going out wearing a bra as a top can be quite tempting. And you wouldn’t be totally nuts for doing so- exposed lingerie is quite the trend right now. There have been several occasions where I almost left the house wearing nothing but a bra under some of my sheer tops but i always chicken out when my hand hits the door-knob, run back to my room, and layer a cami under said top. I mean I loved the way the exposed-lingerie trend looked on the Spring/Summer 2010 runways and think that style mavens like Leighton Meester, Chloe Sevigny, and Zoe Saldana all rocked the look in classy ways, but I still have my hesitations.

What do you all think about exposed underpinnings: Is it sexy or skanky?

i voted “Sexy- There is a way to do it tastefully. (58.0%, 19 Votes)” As is the case with any look, some will pull it off the exposed lingerie look better than others. It’s like the classic ‘does this make me look fat’ question—same as sexy or slutty—when in doubt, trust your mirror to tell you the truth ;D
