6 Ways To Wear The Bondage Look

Think that bondage wear is only for the bedroom? Think again. Bondage-inspired fashion accessories are a fun way to add some flair to your outfits – from t-shirts to summer dresses.  Check out our list for tips on how to look your bondage best this summer!

1 . STRAP IT UP

With their intricate straps and buckles, harnesses can seem a little intimidating but they are actually super easy to wear. Slip a soft elastic or nylon harness on underneath a low cut dress or a shirt with a plunging neckline and you have an instant statement accessory. Not into dresses? A leather harness worn on the outside of a fitted button down shirt looks structured and trendy.

 

2 . CUTE AND COLLAR-FUL

Leather collars are usually associated with BDSM play but a chic collar or choker can be the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. Unlike many necklaces, they are designed to fit snugly around the neck which means they’re unlikely to snag on delicate clothing. Recently, designers have been moving away from strictly black pieces so if black isn’t your style, you can spice up that outfit with a subtle beige or soft pink collar instead.

 

3. MEANT TO BE SEEN

Create The Look: Mesh Long-Sleeved Boatneck Top & Lonely Lulu Soft Cup Bra

The Underwear as Outerwear trend can be effortless. This look incorporates visible lingerie (like bras, chemises and slips) into every day outfits. It’s daring, modern and oh so sexy. You can achieve the same look – but with a bondage twist – but pairing a bold black bra (the more straps the better!) with a sheer mesh shirt.

 

4 . UNCHAINED

Nobody is saying that you should walk around with your hands tied together but wearing a single leather cuff can be an eye-catching accessory. Most bondage cuffs come with a detachable chain and for those that don’t, you can simple stack the cuffs on one wrist (like these gorgeous bangle cuffs). This comes with the added benefit of having a set of handcuffs handy, ready for playtime.

 

5 . PEEK-A-BOO

Garter belts were once an essential in a woman’s wardrobe but with the invention of stay-up stockings, garters have become more fashion accessory than fashion necessity. Wear a pair of thigh garters (usually elastic or leather) and thigh high socks or stockings for a playfully sexy look. Garters with multiple straps or buckles, like this stunning pair, give off a subtle bondage vibe.

 

6 . SHOW SOME SKIN

They may hate to see you go, but they’ll love to watch you leave. Show off some surprise skin with an open back shirt and some intricate strap detailing. If you’re not one for cleavage-baring shirts or see-through tops, go for something modest in the front but with an open back. This take on bondage style is subtle and chic, perfect for the office or that day time event.
