2020 is almost over, and I know I’m not the only one excited to say goodbye! Normally, New Year’s Eve is one of my favourite nights of the year to get dressed up. I love the glitter, sparkles and metallic colours that define New Year’s celebrations, and it’s always fun to end the year lavishly.
I first discovered Australian brand Stonemen several years ago whilst looking for comfortable, stylish men’s underwear as a gift for my partner. I was so impressed by the quality of the briefs that came for him that I knew I had to get my own pair of Stonemen one day.
This year I’m seeing a trend of silk slips that double as both loungewear and dresses you can wear out and about. So many slips this season are designed in gorgeous opaque colours and fun prints that they’re pratically begging to be shown off in public.

Looking at Helen Valk Varavin’s designs is like peering into a lush fairytale. There is definitely something magical about these luxe underthings, which are often named after famous mythological women and are designed “with modern goddesses in mind”.
True vintage lingerie can be hard to find in wearable condition, even online. Luckily, there are numerous modern brands making beautiful lingerie inspired by vintage styles.
HARA — which means green in Hindi — is one of the most eco-conscious brands I’ve seen. They don’t just try to be sustainable; they’re willing to go above and beyond what other companies are doing to help the planet.
I first heard of Queen of Suburbia back in 2016, when the brand was just getting started. The designer behind the brand, Megan, was a lingerie blogger for a few years before she decided to start making her own lingerie, which she now sells through her website and Etsy store.
Whether you’re hosting a Galentine’s Day party, planning for a special night out, or excited to have a glass of wine and a quiet night in, why not indulge in some love-themed lingerie? This is the best time of year to really lean into all things cute and girly.
