Frock Me with TK Maxx: Underwear as Outerwear

I'm not normally one to sit and watch telly all day, truth be told I usually half watch a show on my laptop as I blog or eat. But this weekend I'm spending the rainy weekend in Hampshire, which means telly galore! This morning I caught a repeat of last Sunday's Frock Me with TK Maxx, with Alexa Chung, Henry Holland and Gemma Cairney, which was the Underwear as Outerwear episode. Regular readers will know that this is one of my favourite trends - here's my blogpost on it.

Here are a couple of behind the scenes videos from this episode:


Henry Holland's take on underwear as outerwear




Frock Off




Here are my top five picks from the high-street:




Topshop zip lace slip skirt - £25. Looks like a vintage slip but it's toughened up with the exposed zip. 
Rare floral cropped top - £26. This little top is so versatile, I would wear it with rolled up trousers, a slip skirt or even over a tshirt or dress. 
New Look lace panel bodysuit - £16. Bodysuits are my absolute essential for this trend, and a little touch of lace makes this one absolutely perfect for layering showing off. 


Miss Selfridge lace cami - £25. A very subtle take on this trend, you really can't go wrong with a pretty lace cami.



Henry Holland for Pretty Polly tights - £12. I know some people have already started wearing suspenders with shorts and tights but I don't think I'm quite there! That's why I absolutely love these tights.


Frock Me with TK Maxx is on Sundays on Channel 4. For more information check out www.facebook.com/tkmaxx
