Punk it up with a Balmain x VS bra like Candice

Following a short hiatus since giving birth, Candice Swanepoel was back on the annual Victoria's Secret runway this week, strutting her stuff in a range of lingerie looks.

Our favorite has got to be this festive red plaid set featuring studded and mesh details. Ofcourse this is the special collaborative design by Balmain for the Victoria's Secret show.

We love the punky plaid detailing combined with the mesh which gives it an edge. Since underwear has been boldly used as a layering piece now, it's easy to see this bra under a mesh top.

Hurry up and click to the right to buy it now before this hot hot hot collab sells out.
