I found Bones Lingerie through Etsy. It's the kind of underwear you'd design in your dreams and then wear everyday, and it's so amazing that you'd want to show it to people, anyone. It's underwear that's so beautiful and cool that it should be outerwear. And you know, with the right styling, that's completely do-able. Find some opaque tights and a Peaches t-shirt, and you're away!
Bones Lingerie is made in Los Angeles by April Kristna Garcia. A one woman dream team, she sources all the fabrics, designs and manufactures each piece herself. April says ''I started up Bones Lingerie because I am obsessed with pin up girls and skulls and want to create beautiful lingerie''. What a babe! So go support this independent business and pick up some incredible and unique underwear while you're there...

I love the minimalist trend; and whilst I'm a huge sucker for busy prints and clashing colour, I know minimalism also has a lot to offer. Minimalism, known for using simple, large forms, in fashion relies on details, shapes, cuts and texture to give interest. There is a chic Japanese subtlety to it which appeals when in certain moods and can give you a clean canvas on which to apply ideas. Minimalism goes hand in hand with modern - but in the 50s and 60s, as trend makers looked to an imagined future for inspiration, art, architecture and fashion got a minimal makeover. It's a wearable trend that inspires a million BA fashion students experimenting with fabrics and tailoring to take their dreams to extremes.
