Wardrobe essentials | Jockey Skimmies slipshort

cocomamastyle | wardrobe essentials | jockey skivvies slip short | underwearAs the foundation of every outfit, underwear can change our shape and affect how clothes sit on the body; it’s important to think about this first layer and match it to your outfit, not in terms of colour and print – who has time to do that?! – but in terms of choosing the right shape to smooth or shape to create the perfect base. While lace and patterns may look pretty (and we certainly need a bit of that in our lives!) it’s the streamlined nude and neutral underwear which works best under lighter colours, clingy fabrics and form-fitting styles.

Meet Skimmies slipshorts from Jockey, a brand with a 140 year history that’s led the way in underwear for over a century and has now brought this U.S. best seller to the UK.

Skimmies slip short in 2 lengths, from £13, Jockey

With a seamless finish and smooth lines, I’ve not found better than these for eliminating VPL while still keeping you covered and they’re a great alternative to a slip for  coverage without bulk under a lightweight outfit. Skimmies aren’t about control (don’t think these are going to suck you in leaving you gasping for breath!) they’re the comfortable option for smoothing coverage with a lightweight feel. Choose from black, white or nude in two lengths and wear under dresses, skirts, trousers and jumpsuits – the options are endless!

Top tip: If you’re not sure which colour to try, go nude; they will work with everything.

Tried & tested

I tried the short length Skimmies in nude which worked perfectly under this lightweight pleated skirt which would normally require a slip to be worn as the skirt is quite sheer. With the Skimmies you get a streamlined finish with no knicker and waistband lines and no need for a slip to preserve your dignity!
