The new trend: Showing off what’s underneath


What was once seen as a fashion faux pas has become all the rage on the runways and red carpets – showing off your underwear. The term VPL (Visible Panty Line) once feared, has now become a trend seen on some of the world’s most fashionable ladies. And we’re not talking barely-there g-strings either. The latest fad in lingerie has taken influence from a more vintage/Brigette Bardot look with bralettes and full-coverage high briefs taking centre stage,

And with awesome lingerie brands on the rise, eg. Lonely Lingerie and Rihanna’s Fenty X Savage, who have actually focussed on more inclusive, feminist and mainstream collections, it’s no surprise that women want to show off what’s underneath. It’s something to be proud of.  (more…)

Rihanna’s Fenty X Savage Lingerie Line is here!


The highly-anticipated lingerie line is here and it’s everything we were promised plus more. Last month, Rihanna gave us a few hints about what the new line was all about (we even talked about it on the S+P blog here) but we were already convinced it would be a hit as this woman can do no wrong. And now it’s finally here.

With a focus on diversity, the lingerie line offers sizes from XS to XXXL and cup sizes 32A to 44DD – a pretty decent offering. The range spans across 90 pieces including lingerie, sleepwear and accessories, separated into four capsules.

Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry and this last week was Fashion Revolution Week. So were you asking the question; who made my clothes?

This week marks the the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 clothing manufacturer workers back in 2013. The Fashion Revolution encourages all consumers to ask brands #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.

While we can’t all be living out the wardrobe choices of our more eccentric alter-ego at Coachella this year, we can incorporate these rather radical style cues into our own wardrobes. Here are the top 3 trends we’re loving from this year’s outfits and how you can style them into the everyday.
