Forget the haberdashery department: the shoulder pad has been relegated to second place in the styling accessory pecking order as we now say yes (I’ll take two please), to the nipple cover. As underwear goes outerwear for this spring summer Selfridges report a 20% increase in sales of the nude modesty managers. Women investing in sheer luxury underwear and lace bodies are no longer hiding their assets under a bushel, but want to preserve some element of modesty as they follow the lead set by Dior, Gaultier and Berardi in the move from under to outer. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Just not all of it apparently.
