Underwear can often be unpractically embellished or patterned, but this season there’s going to be a rise in the “naked” underwear look that involves going back to basics with tonal nudes and minimal monochromes. This trend is all about embracing our natural silhouettes with body-contouring bras and seam-free knickers – there’s not a niggling strap mark in sight. Instead, think soft cups and delicate balconette styles in pretty laces and dainty fabrics. Perfect for your daily lingerie line-up.
From intense fuchsia and cherry red to mid-tone pistachio and lavender there are a multitude of reimagined colours primed to be a major trend this year. And there’s nothing to lift those mid-winter blues quite like an injection of colour into your underwear. Slipping into a pretty sunshine-hued bra can lift the spirits almost as much as the real thing, we say. While bold colours may not be for everyone, subdued pastel shades are flattering on every skin tone and, not to mention, seriously pretty.
There’s something about slipping into delicate lingerie that turns our everyday stroll into a little more of a strut—even if no one else knows it. Sheer fabric is sensual in a minimal way, and is both practical enough to sit discreetly under a tee and more titillating than your run-of-the-mill t-shirt bra. Delicate lace cups and scalloped trims are guaranteed make you feel your most beautiful self, especially when they come in sultry black or soft pastels of the season. Look to Agent Provocateur for inspiration on how to break into splurge-worthy lingerie. There’s something for everyone; from classic to daring. And with every style, you’ll feel like you’re wearing a work of art.
