All you bold ladies, read this gutsy trend post in the Cheap Chic group.

Wearing lingerie as outerwear, done right, to me is a fun play on sexuality and fashion. Spring season is steadily approaching and I am already thinking of some fun ways to revamp my style persona. Why should lingerie only be worn for late night rendezvous for only the men to see? It is now time to show off our undergarments for everyone to see (I know, I sound like I want to walk out in a see through teddy). Lingerie, worn the right way, is uber sexy and fun. As pictured, Johanna from Lookbook.nu has a high-waisted pencil skirt, blazer, and layered necklaces, displaying the bra as a top rather than a something that should be worn to bed.

I know some ladies are not that bold to show off their mid-section and completely expose themselves. If you are a more reserved fashionista such as myself, wearing something see-thorough is little more your speed. Wearing a nice sheer button-up shirt would be great to still be able to show off your garments without feeling completely naked. And wearing a nice loose-fitting tank top in the summer is also another great way to pull this look off.

But please be careful if you are going to wear a bra as a garment; make sure the material and structure are correct. Never go for anything sheer. You can have a nipple slip without ever knowing. And please make sure you have the correct size bra, nothing needs to have the possibility of falling out and being exposed. So all you ladies that have thought about showing off bras, I say open those shirts and let those puppies breathe. LOL!

Below are some choices in some playful yet feminine bras that can easily be worn as garments.
