1. Reverse layering
This is daring, yet still safe. Wear your staple top (like a t-shirt or classic button-up) underneath a delicate lace number. This trick can also be achieve with slip dresses.
2. Teddy or corset
A lace bodysuit can be so sexy, hence a teddy and/or corset are sensual substitutes for it. They come in mesh and lace, and still offer sufficient chest support. Look like a total snack by pairing it with a pair of blue jeans, black miniskirt or black maxi with a slide slit. You could also accessorise with a lariat necklace.

3. Bralette or bra
Add a special styling touch by either disregarding the top buttons of your dress or shirt, or letting your bralette/bra show by rocking a top with a deep plunge. Your bralette or bra can also be a standalone item – this is the perfect option if you're looking to exude just a hint of sex appeal.
Beauty tip: A red lip always goes well with the aforementioned ensembles.
4. Sheer top
A guaranteed way to showcase your underwear without showing too much skin, is by layering it with something that you can see right through when you hold it up. This is risqué, yes, but opting for a top made of mesh, netting or crochet on top of your intimate wear is no longer a wardrobe malfunction. The intimate wear could either have a splash of colour that will pop out from under your sheer dress/top, or be coordinated to match the rest of your outfit.
5. Fishnet stockings
Fishnets have found their way into the mainstream by making a bold addition to our leisure capsule wardrobe. You could pair yours with cuffed or ripped jeans. The best way to pull it off, though, is not to overthink it. Fishnets with a larger pattern make a bolder statement. For a subtle approach, try fishnet socks instead of stockings – they go very well with a pair of heels or minimalistic sneakers.
