Fleur's Guide To 2023 Lingerie Trends

You’ll turn every head in these special little somethings — and leave them begging for another peak.

Lingerie shouldn’t be an afterthought — just like you, it’s the main event. Today, we’re even seeing designers putting intimates in the spotlight where they belong.

From barely-there slips to ‘90s-inspired bras, this year’s most popular lingerie trends will give you a reason to dress up. Wear these versatile pieces out in public to seduce a special someone — or leave them on the floor.

It’s All About Balance, Baby

If we could sum up this year’s designer trends in one word, it would have to be “balance.” Whether it’s teeny tiny panties paired with a big bell sleeve top or bra tops paired with midi skirts or wide-leg pants, designers love going for an oversized top, micro-mini bottom look (or vice versa).

To incorporate their favorite lingerie pieces in their streetwear styles, designers will layer sheer pieces or large jackets over top. Pairing a full coverage piece made of sheer mesh or lace over a simple bra and panty is a high-fashion way to amp up the appeal. 

1. Take Your Top Off

While we’ve seen bra-inspired tops on runways past, today’s styles cut straight to the point with ‘fits centered around underwire bras. Too many designer runways to count paired flowy bottoms with classic underwire bra silhouettes for a powerful That Girl look. 

Take a little inspo from these outfits by pairing bra tops with high-waisted, flowy bottoms or layering them under larger structured pieces like blazers and jackets. If wearing a bra alone isn’t tonight’s vibe, try a corset or bustier top to get the same bombshell vibes as just a bra with a little more coverage for chilly nights.

Plus, we’re still seeing classic trends like soft knit bras and longline bralettes all over the runway. We love layering bras and bralettes with casual tees for a casual ‘90s-inspired look or wearing them alone for a club-worthy ‘fit.

2. No Pants, No Problem

We’ve loved seeing models flaunt what they got in tiny micro shorts that are basically briefs. Many of these models are completely bare on the bottom, while others pair these barely-there bottoms with fishnets and garters for a classic Parisian vibe. Some designers go for a masculine brief style, while others go for a high waist silhouette to play with proportions.

While going bottomless and wearing nothing but a panty might be a little bold for every day — but we say, be bold. Even on days when you want a little more coverage, we can still take inspiration from these leg-lengthening trends. Go for a pair of short shorts or a tiny miniskirt paired with a billowing blouse for an interesting silhouette. 

From eyelet lace to sheer tulle, we’re all about texture. Touch all of this, baby.

3. Sheer Indulgence and Luxe Lace

That’s not all, lover. From bodysuits to slips, there are plenty of ways to let your lingerie take center stage. We don’t like to play favorites, but we see sheer fabrics and lacy slips making a spicy statement this year.

Using sheer fabrics like mesh and tulle is a great way to evoke subtle siren vibes while showing just the right amount of skin.

You can slip into a sheer bodysuit over a bra or bralette for skin-tight sensual appeal or do the same with a lacy sheer skirt to show off your mile-long legs. If you’re game to get bold, wear a mesh dress over a bikini or bra and panty set for the ultimate sex kitten vibe.

Not up for showing off your knickers in public? Don’t fret, you can still style lingerie-inspired looks. Lots of lacy, silky chemises and slip dresses are hitting the runway as well. By wearing this loungewear as day and nightwear, you’ll be leaving them with quite the view. 

Wear Lingerie Like a Fleur Girl

Undergarments aren’t just for under anymore! Take a piece from your lingerie drawer from the bedroom to the streets of New York. Next, we’ll explore how you can get inspired by these runway lingerie trends not only in the bedroom but in the streets as well. 

With cutting-edge exposed lingerie on the runway, take a risk with your style as well! Even if you don’t choose to wear just a bra or panty, you can get bold with your fashion choices and boost your confidence by showing off your favorite assets. Plus, now you can show off your favorite lingerie pieces outside the bedroom.

Lingerie Trends in the Bedroom

Let’s get intimate. When designers are revealing it all in ready-to-wear looks on the runway, that means you can get even bolder in private. Get freaky in a crotchless thong that bares it all, or show off your assets in a cupless bra.

You can also explore the fabrics the hottest designers have been using, like tulle, silk, and lace. Get colorful and bold in our tulle Dotty Demi Bra and Cheeky Panty, or keep it delicate and sweet in eyelet lace. 

Finally, go for a runway-inspired high-waisted option — but don’t think that full coverage has to equal dowdy. Balance torso coverage with a cheeky bottom to give them just enough skin perfect for the ultimate reveal later in the night.

For a classic silhouette bra like the ones we’re seeing in Miu Miu’s shows, snap up our classic Eco Luxe Lined Demi Bra for opulent support to keep you comfortable throughout the day and confident throughout the night.

Keeping It Casual 

We love mixing in lingerie with casual daywear looks. Take a page from the designer’s books and venture out in a sultry, silky slip dress. We love lace trim to play with texture and all-silk pieces for the softest fabrics your skin has ever felt. 

You can also go for a slip-style cami to pair with jeans for a casual look. For a modern 90s throwback, layer your slip dress or cami over top of a plain white baby tee. Layering is the perfect way to keep lingerie pieces feeling hip and casual for the daytime. 

Lingerie-Inspired Nightwear

When wearing lingerie pieces at night, we say go bold or go home. The bar or club is the perfect place to mix statement lingerie pieces into your look. Pair your favorite push-up bra with a loose pair of pants and a structured blazer for an edgy Bianca Jagger look

Or, show off your favorite bra and panty under a playful mesh dress. With our sheer midi dress options, you can find the perfect balance of coverage and scandal to keep them wanting more. 

If you’re going to go for the micro shorts or mini skirt look, try balancing them out with an oversized flowy top and a pair of thigh highs or tights. We also love opting for a high wait to further balance the amount of skin you’re showing to keep you feeling classy and comfortable.

Strut Your Stuff

There’s nothing like lingerie. Come in hot with 2023’s top trends, whether you’re wearing your favorite pieces for brunch at Buvette or saving them for your lover’s eyes only.

Overall, lingerie on (and off) the runway is all about balance. You can pair a tiny top with bigger bottoms or vice versa, or layer something sheer over a lingerie set for a subtly sensual look. 

Finally, you can pair lush, feminine loungewear pieces like chemises and slips with more structured pieces like blazers or outerwear for date night ‘fits. 

You’ll turn every head in these special little somethings — and leave them begging for another peak.
