Kink parties often have “a look,” and that look can be exhaustingggggg. I love wearing high-maintenance black fishnets and nothing else as much as the next slut, but sometimes it’s cold or you have a weird body feeling or you don’t know what you’re actually up for this evening or you want to make an outfit out of clothes you might wear in any other context or you don’t want to channel Leather Mommi Barbie. What do you wear when you don’t want to wear a PVC corset and heels, and when a button-down and crisp pants aren’t your style either?
What do you actually like? What do you actually feel comfortable in? What do you want to get out of the evening? What will make you feel like a crazy hot badass? Wear that. Follow the dress code if there is one of course, but be your own rad self, too. And mix and match the different categories below to make all black a little more interesting.
Where else are you going to get to wear see-through clothes in public? If total transparency isn’t your thing, mesh panels can strike a balance between comfortable and sexy, and you can play down the potential althleisure vibe with other, dressier elements.
Why not reflect all the light in the room?
Cut-outs are fun because they feel like being a little more dressed than usual at the same time as being a little less dressed than usual. Maybe you’re in jeans but they’re also slit higher than your underwear would be if you were wearing any. Maybe you’re in a high-neck shirt but it’s open low. Maybe you’re in a bodysuit but it’s really a bra and underwear held together with wishes. The world is your hand-wash-only oyster.
Like cut-outs, but more so.
Sometimes you do want to be Leather Daddy Barbie, but also still comfortable.
