I wouldn't say I'm a big fan of multi-tasking, except when it comes to clothes, so I love this trend I'm seeing everywhere-lingerie styled as clothes. Consider lingerie the extra shot of espresso in your everyday latte. It not only lets you get the most mileage out of a garment, but acts as a 'jolt' to your wardrobe and your entire day--you can take the comfort and confidence you find from lingerie you love, and share it the world. From lacy camisoles to menswear inspired PJ's, learn how to style your lingerie and sleepwear into looks that will turn heads and keep you shining from dusk to dawn this summer.
This is one of the easier garments to work into your everyday wardrobe and also one of the simplest ways to add a bit of luxe and intrigue to your outfit.

I love Khloe Kardashian's ensemble here. She paired a bright red bra and shape wear with a matching dress and bag, plus neutral accessories that keep her overall look 'light' and modern.
Matching bright lingerie with a monochrome top or dress makes the outfit look completely intentional. Do you have a bright bralette that's too pretty to hide in a drawer? While I wouldn't call this an 'everyday look', Khloe's outfit is giving us major inspiration to break it out. Not to worry, there are plenty of approachable ways to dress your undergarments down, too.
We've seen an influx of bodysuits in the last year and it doesn't look like they are going away anytime soon--thank goodness, because we love how comfortable and stylish they are.
They were all the rage at this past season's lingerie expos and we can't wait to share some of the Fall/Winter collections--when sleeves get longer and colors get bolder.
Much of the same principles that apply to bralettes and bras, work for bodysuits, too. They may be even more versatile because they cover your waist, if you're not into showing midriff. Here are the many ways you can wear bodysuits at every occasion:
Wide leg trousers a la Kate Hudson. Flat front trousers or jeans work great for more embellished bodysuits, letting the eye focus on the details. For more simple bodysuits, add an embellished waistline, like a cinch or a tie-front belt, or an interesting belt, for visual interest.

I'm sure you've been tempted to wear your PJ's out of the house before. With the variety of stylish options available now, you totally can--and pick up style points in the process.
If you're trying to do this PJ thing incognito, it helps to pick pajamas in colors or patterns that are similar to your existing wardrobe and wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb. Then, dress them up and find extra comfort knowing you're likely the coziest person in the room.
This is the least subtle way to wear sleepwear out, but perhaps the most comfortable, unusual and stylish. However you wear it, you'll definitely have that 'it' factor and attract a few stares, maybe some photos and definitely lots of compliments.
Now that you're equipped with several different ways to wear lingerie, sleepwear and robes out of the house, what new look will you try this summer? Above all, we know that comfort and confidence is the best accessory--so experiment with these looks and see which work for you. Burgundy Fox subscriptions include all the garment types you read about: bralette & underwear sets, matching camisoles & shorts, bodysuits, pajamas and nightgowns, and robes--so you can experiment with new looks every month or quarter.
