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.
The more I invest in adding beautiful and unusual pieces to my lingerie collection, the more I find myself trying to think up outfit ideas that will show them off to the world. After all, if you can wear something as both underwear and outerwear, that makes it doubly good value for money, right?
Last year, I published 5 lingerie trend predictions for 2019 and said I’d aim to revisit it when the year was up. It was a fun post to put together, so I’m doing it again with 5 new predictions for 2020.
As September winds down, I can’t help but feel sad that summer is basically over, and with it those seaside days that make the season so special. Then I realised: why let the beachy vibes fade with summer?
Last year, we saw the star-motif trend take off. This year, we’ve seen another cosmic trend appear: celestial-themed lingerie. This lingerie features the moon, stars and planets, and much of it draws inspiration from astrology.
A while back, someone wrote in asking about where they could find double-strapped suspender belts. I know this is a style Agent Provocateur has done more than once, but at the time they had nothing (and currently still don’t), and at first it seemed like nowhere else did either.
Recently, I’ve noticed a marked increase in bras that take ‘unlined’ to its extreme, using only plain, transparent mesh over the cups. These styles tend to be lacking decorative details too, or if they do have them, they’re the same colour as the mesh to maintain that sleek and minimal look.
Happy new year everyone! I thought I’d kick 2019 off with something a little different – my first ever attempt at predicting the industry’s next big trends.
Lately, a desire for visible branding has reached the world of lingerie. Influenced by both the rise of sporty, athleisure-wear and the 90s fashion revival (think Kate Moss in Calvin Klein logo-waistband briefs), logo elastic trims are everywhere right now. But that’s not the trend that this article is about.
I always seem to get around to these trend posts months and months after I mean to. But this time at least that’s a good thing, because what was previously only a minor trend is really taking off this season. So I’ve got lots of looks to show you!
