Forget dressing up for anybody else – there’s nothing like the confidence boost that a sexy set of lingerie gives you. While a select few may be lucky enough to lay eyes on it, for the most part all that silk and lace is going to be your little secret. So why not splash out on the best lingerie the fashion world has to offer?
Whatever your style or budget, there’s a wide selection of connoisseurs who really know their intimates. If you’re planning on making a real investment, you can never go wrong powerhouses like L’Agent Provocateur, La Perla and Eres whose pieces are masterclasses in lace delicates.
For those who aren’t making that lawyer money just quite yet, the likes of For Love & Lemons, Heidi Klum Intimates, Simone Perele and Mimi Holliday offer everything from daring strappy pieces to romantic white lace – which wouldn’t look out of place in our gallery.
Of course, the latest underwear trends always find their way to the high street. Ann Summers combines a sexy modern brief with a dreamy bustier for a dash of juxtaposition, while Urban Outfitters caters to the cool kids with their velvet palm printed co-ords.
Intimissimi has absolutely snatched the game this season with stunning floral appliques and unexpected details like a halter tie to step up their affordable pieces. As always, & other stories and Marks & Spencer’s Rosie for Autograph collection bring the romance with rose gold silks and burgundy lace.
There’s no reason to stick to the traditional bra and panties either. Bluebella and & other stories have two beautiful one pieces that could easily take you into daytime territory if you want to jump on the underwear as outerwear train.
Topshop’s line of Tommy Hilfiger sets also bring activewear into night time territory, following very closely in the footsteps of Calvin Klein’s signature whites. And if you’re scouting for Valentine’s Day goodies, a suspender belt like the one by Agent Provocateur or a bit of leather like For Love & Lemons’ option never did a girl wrong…
