A bra is not a shirt

The lace and sheers have been a trend for a little while now, but it appears that the industry has taken it further to  coin it as "the lingerie trend".  Mixed feelings here.  Though designer collections have used this trend and styled it to be synonymous with class, femininity, and romance, I question the "ready-to-wear" label of some of the styles.  Take for instance, Nina Ricci's spring collection.  On one hand, the collection holds such a delicacy to it with sensual cuts and materials.  I can understand drawing inspiration from the overall impression of these designs, but so help me if I was to actually see certain pieces around the city. Pretty sure if we saw a girl walking down the street showing off her bra under a lacey blazer, "classy" wouldn't exactly be one of the words that would be used to describe her.
