How to wear: The provocateur trend

How to wear: The provocateur trend

This season is all about mixing and matching contrasting looks and the seductive s/s provocateur trend works wonders when softened by girly details.

D&G, Dior and YSL were among the designers to champion lingerie as a style to be shared, with models strutting down the catwalks in corsets, bodices, bra tops, big pants and slinky slips. Inherent to this look are sexy materials and sensual colours, so think lace, satin and silk in black, nudes and rich reds.

Lipsy Animal Print Tiered Dress

Our sexy red animal print chiffon dress takes inspiration from the D&G catwalk, where night-time designs were toned down for day-wear looks with prairie details and romantic ruffles. You can even add a tribal edge to the wild and racy style with our multi-coin necklace to lead the look away from the bedroom and into the jungle.

The provocateur trend also works when teamed with florals, and as clashing prints and textures is a celebrated style this season, we're free to pair lace and satin with flower prints to add girly charm to the sex siren look.

Lipsy paneled strapless dress

Try our panelled strapless floral dress with lace trim for a hint of naughtiness, soften the bodice look with the satin bustier babydoll dress and mix and match the lace strapless corset or lace body with a floral skirt. 

There is one simple rule to obey here: if you look like you've just stepped out of the bedroom, go back in and add pieces that will bring your style into the realms of daytime desire.
