Outfit Round-Up + How to Find The Perfect Pair
Whenever I’m on set with a stylist, I always try to watch how they work. I’m always searching for the behind-the-scenes tips and tricks that make their outfits look so much better than mine. One of the first on-set styling tips I learned was the importance of wearing the proper undergarments. What you wear underneath your outfit can be just as important as the outfit itself. I know the concept may seem silly, but I promise you – it’s the truth. Your underwear is basically an accessory to your outfit that no one sees. The correct pair will ensure that you look your best, and the wrong pair will cause embarrassing wardrobe mishaps. I can tell you from experience that a VPL (visible panty line) can ruin an outfit and attract the wrong kind of attention. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite undergarments to wear with different types of outfits.
I speak from experience when I say that you need to wear full-coverage undergarments when you’re wearing a skirt. I’ve learned this fact the hard way after flashing at least a dozen different people on blog shoots. If you’re wearing a skirt, the wind will blow, and your butt will be displayed to the world if you’re not careful. When I’m wearing a loose skirt, I like to stick to hipster-cut underwear. It’s cute, comfortable, and adequately-sized for any wardrobe mishaps!
Two of my favorite hipster-cut underwear are the SO® Sassy Hipster and SO® Cotton Lounge Hipster Panty. They’re both incredibly comfortable designs, and the flat-lying waistbands and seams don’t show through your skirt. This design also works well for thick jeans and fit-and-flare dresses. I recently picked up five pairs of this style from Kohl’s for only $19.99, and through March 15th, you can receive an extra $10 off of a $40 intimates purchase with the code INTIMATES10!
If you’re wearing leggings, jeggings, or very tight pants, I’d suggest wearing a thong. There’s nothing more embarrassing than having someone point out your VPL, so it’s best to avoid the situation altogether. I find lace-waisted thongs to be the most comfortable variety, but flat-seam underwear works well too!
The Candie’s® Lace Thong and Candie’s® Lace-Waist Microfiber Thong are two recent purchases that are perfect for this type of outfit. The material is soft and stretchy, but it stays in place. Thongs are definitely the most versatile type of underwear, so this style is a great investment. Whether you’re wearing tight pants, dresses, shorts, or skirts, they’ll get the job done!
And now comes the hardest type of outfit: a super-stretchy, incredibly tight dress/skirt. When your outfit clings to every inch of your skin, it’s hard to hide your undergarments. I always choose flat-seam underwear for this type of look. They provide coverage without a detectable seam, so your outfit can shine.
The no panty line section of Kohl’s intimates section is the perfect place to find this type of undergarment. I recently purchased the Maidenform Comfort Devotion Bikini Panty and SO® Smooth Thong, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Both styles have very soft fabric, and the flat seams are very discreet underneath your clothes. They’re both great picks for ultra-tight clothing!If you’re searching for the perfect pair of underneath, take advantage of the Kohl’s Semi-Annual Sale.
