myself not being much of a skin baring dresser, i love finding ways to add a little bit of sensual mystique to my look. the feeling of silk against the skin, and the ever so slight reveal of french lace poking out from beneath thy cashmere sweater seems to be an elegant way of doing so. this mode is very reminiscent of the lingerie dressing days of the 90’s- kate moss, and crew donning nothing but a slip- nips out, black calvin’s on full display. i’m thinking a more underplayed rendition, more carine roitfeld inspired, black silk cami under an off the shoulder black cashmere sweater… or a floor sweeping ivory silk slip with a long bum veiling knit. the trick is to find a slip cut on the bias- how they crafted them in the old days. la perla and carine gilson make some exquisite pieces- most frequently the cheapies just won’t do the trick.
