5 Stylish Ways to Accessorize Your Look: What to Wear Under a Skirt

Accessories can make or break an outfit, and when it comes to wearing skirts, the right choice of undergarments can add an extra touch of style and sophistication to your overall look. Whether you prefer a casual or more formal style, there are several fashionable and stylish underwear options to consider. In this blog post, we will explore five stylish ways to accessorize your look with what to wear under a skirt. 

Tulle Petticoat

Consider adding a tulle petticoat for a unique accessory to elevate your look. This versatile piece can be styled with a variety of skirts and dresses for a fun and feminine touch.

A tulle petticoat is a sheer, lightweight skirt worn underneath a dress or skirt to add volume and shape. It's often made from base layers or layers of tulle fabric and comes in one material and a range of lengths and colors to suit different styles.

For more casual occasions, pair shorts or a tulle petticoat with a casual dress or denim jacket for a fun and flirty vibe. Opt for a longer-length tulle petticoat for formal events and accessorize with minimal jewelry or a statement necklace. A wide belt can add definition to the waistline, and strappy sandals bring a chic vibe.

Lace Trimmed Slip

If you are looking for a simple yet effective way to add texture and femininity to your dress or skirt, try adding a lace-trimmed slip. Lace-trimmed slips come in a variety of styles, from shorter slips to longer ones with lace patterns. They can be paired with solid-colored dresses or skirts to make the soft lace trim stand out and add a touch of elegance to the outfit.

When choosing a lace-trimmed slip, consider the color of the dress or skirt you'll be wearing it with. Black, white, or nude are popular color choices, depending on the color of the dress or skirt being worn. For contrast in summer skirts, for example, a black lace-trimmed slip would pair well with a lighter solid-colored dress short skirt, while a nude slip would complement a darker-colored skirt.

It's also important to consider the length of the slip to ensure it doesn't peek out too much from under the dress or skirt. Look for a slip that is slightly shorter than the hemline of the dress or skirt.

Patterned Tights

Patterned tights pants are a fantastic way to add pizzazz to any outfit and make it stand out for any occasion. While black tights are a classic staple, patterned cotton tights provide more creativity and uniqueness.

When it comes to pairing patterned tights with clothing, textures, and prints can be contrasted beautifully with striped shorts or floral shirt dresses. The key is to balance patterns and textures so they don't clash and appear too busy.

There are a variety of patterns to choose from when it comes to patterned tights. Polka dots are a fun and playful option that works well with solid-colored skirts or with dresses and skirts. Thin or wide stripes can also add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Plaid is a classic pattern that brings a cozy winter vibe to any ensemble. Animal prints like leopard or snake can add a touch of boldness and edge to a simple outfit. Lace-patterned tights add a touch of elegance and femininity, while floral prints bring a touch of romance to any look.

Layered Slip and Blouse

Layering a slip and a blouse is a wonderful way to add some style and personality to your outfit. It's an easy, comfortable and versatile way to create a look that's perfect for any season. The key is to choose the right blouse to complement the slip.

For a plain satin or lace slip, a romantic and flowy blouse is the perfect choice. The blouse will add some volume and movement to the overall look. This combination creates a feminine and elegant vibe that is perfect for a date night or a wedding. Choose a blouse with delicate details like ruffles or lace to add a touch of whimsy.

On the other hand, if you have a bold and patterned slip that you want to showcase, team it up with a simple top. This allows the title to take center stage and the blouse acts as more coverage of a supporting character. The contrast of the excellent and simple top with the busy slip creates a perfect balance of understated style and elegance.

High-Waisted Undergarments

High-waisted undergarments are the ultimate accessory for women looking to define and accentuate their natural waistline. This essential item creates a smooth silhouette under a skirt, making it a must-have for any fashion-conscious individual.

There are various types of high-waisted undergarments available, from briefs and panties to shorts, each designed to cater to different needs. Briefs and underwear are perfect for someone looking for a little extra tummy-tucking without going all the way, while shorts offer full coverage and support, making them ideal for those looking for additional smoothing around the hips and thighs. No matter the type, high-waisted undergarments are a game-changer for enhancing your natural curves and look.


Accessorizing your look with the right undergarments can elevate your skirt outfit to new heights. From adding volume and femininity with a tulle petticoat to creating a sleek and streamlined silhouette with high-waisted shapewear, there are various options to suit your style and the occasion. Experiment with different accessories and find the ones that make you feel confident, comfortable, and stylish. Have fun and express your unique fashion sense.

Meet our founder: CarrieRae

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezy dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wear that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
