news brief


Wearing underwear as outerwear is nothing new. Exposed bra straps date at least as far back as Madonna in her Desperately Seeking Susan days. Exposed underpants are a rather newer development, but there’s no denying that briefs are a bona fide trend. In the last few weeks, we’ve spotted party girls Liz Goldwyn, Juliette Lewis, and Daisy Lowe modeling them over black hose. And if designers have their way, we’ll be working the look sans tights come spring. Glorified panties—the term “short shorts” does not do them justice—were all over the runways, everywhere from Marni to MaxMara to Marc Jacobs. Will you dare to go bare? Let us know.

    I’m sorry! But, this has to be the strangest trend ever!!! It doesn’t even look good. I think that this going no where.

    I like it. The styles put together by some designers this season are very doable. But everything has a place where it should be worn. Pool partys, beach strolling. Its done in cali a lot, why not dress it up. Club is okay too. people will become used to the look and then everybody will be wearing it as a casual look. Don’t you recall kate moss short, short jeans. its almost the same thing.

    Sorry but all those are, are panties and leotards. Just because they are “on trend” does not mean they look good.

    Like most trends, it’s not meant for everyone. Juliette Lewis wears them good, Daisy Lowe not so much (looks more like a costume). One needs to find the fine line between short shorts and underwear attire.
