Underwear As Outwear - Fall/Winter Ideas

The underwear as outerwear is still going strong, despite the challenges the cooler weather presents to this trend. Lacy camisoles and bustiers lend themselves perfectly to the summer heat, but you have to get a bit more creative for Fall and Winter. Today we're sharing some of the best looks we've seen on Pinterest.

This is a fabulous way to show off bras that have really unique and interesting straps. But make sure the strap design is really special - this could look sloppy with just any ordinary bra.

This lace bodysuit would look gorgeous under a blazer, worn with either slim trousers or a pencil skirt.

This is probably the best (and easiest) way to incorporate your lingerie into your Fall/Winter wardrobe. A drapey/low-neck sweater and a lacy camisole is all you need!

Sexy Skull Prints

Skull prints definitely aren't for everyone, but you have to admit that they’re fun and a bit cheeky. Whether you’re a bit of a goth girl or just want to bring the Halloween spirit into your bedroom, these skull-print lingerie sets show that skeletons can be sexy, not just scary!

What do you think about skull prints, divas, yea or nay? Personally, we wouldn't wear them all year, but we definitely think they're a fun Fall/Halloween lingerie addition to your collection!

Lingerie Diva's Fall/Winter Wishlist

Now is the time when women are switching out their closets, putting away their summer wardrobe and bringing out the fall and winter items. It's also a good time to put away some of your more summery lingerie and incorporate a few of the items from our Fall/Winter wishlist...

A bedroom costume: It's the type of costume that can be worn year 'round, but only in the privacy of your bedroom. Bedroom costumes are a great way to act out fantasies, again and again. If you haven't tried one yet, it's a great way to bring something new to the bedroom.

Patterned tights: I feel like these have been on the cusp of on-trend style for the past couple years, but this year really seems to be their year. We're seeing not just textured tights, but tights with so many fun and different patterns on them - it's really refreshing for your hosiery fanatics out there! (See more in our "Top 10 Tights For Fall" post.)

Something "50 Shades Of Grey"-esque: The mania that surrounded the best-selling series isn't dying down yet, with officially-licensed lingerie and products being released. We like the new items we're seeing that incorporate a bit of fetishism, but in a soft way. Fabric cuffs and lace eye masks and blindfolds (like the Love Spell and Blind Ambition sets below). It's a good way for anyone who doesn't have experience with these types of bedroom accessories to ease into it.

A seasonal bra set: Why do I mean by "seasonal"? I mean a bra set that can take you through Fall, Winter and even into Valentine's Day if need be. Whether you wear this for your partner, or just to have something sexy for yourself, I suggest choosing one that feels appropriate for all seasons and special occasions.

 Tell me, divas, what's on your wishlist right now?

Tumblr Tuesday - Dark, Gothic & Sexy

It's been awhile since we've had a Tumblr Tuesday post on the blog! This time we're sharing a few more images than usual because we've been finding some truly wonderful pictures this month. Our tone is a bit dark and sinister, since it is Halloween month after all, but still beautiful and sexy. Enjoy!

Group Costume Themes For Halloween

Are you dressing up with your friends this Halloween? Stuck on thinking of a good idea? Lingerie Diva is here to help, with this year's list of group costume ideas!

They say women love a man in uniform, but we have a feeling that the opposite applies as well. And what's hotter than a squad of sexy cops or firefighters?

For you music lovers out there, what about going as Lady Gaga and her fans, aka her "little monsters"?

You could all dress up as the Pink Ladies, but we think it'd be funnier to go as different versions of Sandy: good Sandy, cheerleader Sandy and bad Sandy.

Another group of uniforms, although these are a bit more shocking. A convent of naughty nuns is sure to get a lot of attention on Halloween night!

Show your love for your favorite NBA team by dressing as players and/or cheerleaders! And if you go out to the bars, make sure to hit up some guys for a game of Pop-A-Shot.

Want even more group costume ideas? Then check out this post to see what we put together last Halloween!

Why Women Like Sexy Halloween Costumes

Sexy Halloween costumes seem to get more popular each year, with costume designers continually finding new characters or items they can make sexy. And while this trend has received its share of backlash and criticism, we here at certainly support the sexy costumes movement! (In the right place and time, of course. No need to get sexy for the kiddies!)

Why have sexy Halloween costumes become so popular? We haven’t done any formal research, but we think one big reason is because Halloween is one of the few times you can really be whatever you want to be. It’s a time when it’s socially acceptable to let go of your inhibitions and go a bit wild.

On Halloween, fewer people will judge you for wearing something that’s skin-tight, low-cut or super short (or all of the above). And if you’re a woman who typically wears a conservative 3-piece suit or a sweat suit as you run the kids to soccer practice, that kind of break from monotony can be liberating and exhilarating.

If you've been holding back from trying a sexy Halloween costume, we think you should give it a try! It's only  one outfit on one day of the year, why not let your sexiness shine?
