As fashion trends go, lingerie as streetwear is one of those style
statements that peeks out, literally, every few years. And offerings
for spring 2023 may have reached their apex of appeal, with looks
seen on catwalks across fashion capitals.
It’s perhaps spurred by the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor, sexy in that
iconic slip in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Madonna’s ‘80s-based bustier/
crinoline party wear, Beyoncé’s bevy of bodysuits or simply the body
positivity movement that’s percolating across all markets.
The ready-to-wear catwalks showcased bras AS tops, undies AS
pants and more. Bras and panties both informed and framed
spring’s creative output, leaving lingerie looks firmly front and
center. This extreme fashion trend celebrates the body at its most
fashion relaxed. It’s one step beyond the pandemic’s WFH attire. Call
it WFB —Work From Bed, if you will.
