Is this new trend of wearing bras over dresses normal?

Glamorous undress, or innerwear as outerwear, as the trend is called, is a major fashion statement of this year.

The trend has been interpreted in different ways by different people — some wore bra and bralettes as tops, others went for barely-there camisoles, sheer baby dolls among others, while some took it literally and wore their bras over their dress.

Yes, fashion can at times leave you scratching your heads. But with labels like Marc Jacobs, Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier showcasing the trend in their runway collections, would you be brave enough to put your lingerie on show?

"Sporting innerwear as outerwear is not a trend for the faint-hearted. If you want to take a baby step towards it, try wearing a bralet under a translucent top or a pair of boy shirts under a sheer skirt.

The latter trend should be reserved only for the after-dark hours," said Indian stylist Srishti Nadhani.
