What’s a suspender belt lover to do when the weather’s too hot for hosiery? Double garters! Once an old-fashioned thing that only brides still wore, the trend for strappy, elastic lingerie has brought leg garters back into style again.
New Year’s Eve is a great opportunity to bring out the glitziest items in your closet. From glitter to rhinestones to metallic colours (and more glitter!), I love seeing friends and celebrities alike ringing in the New Year wearing outfits that are sparkly and glamorous.
My final gift guide of the year is here, and it’s one for all of you who really want to treat someone (or yourself!) this year. The majority of the items are made from real silk, and some of the laces are breathtakingly beautiful. From comfy sleepwear to dramatic robes, there’s something here to suit most lifestyles.
With little more than a week left to go until Christmas, it’s time for my second annual gift guide. I love this price range, because it’s within reach for many people but also enough to find something that feels luxurious.
I know, I know, I said I was going to get my gift guides done nice and early this year, and here I am publishing the first one two weeks before Christmas Eve. But if you still have some present-shopping to do, then this post is for you.
Today’s post is a follow-up to my recent one on gold-coloured lingerie. Because this other classic metallic can be just as beautiful and luxe! And, I would argue, even more perfect for the festive season. There’s just this definite wintery, ice-queen type vibe that comes with silver.
My Christmas tree is up and decorated (yep, I’m one of those people), and this year I’ve gone with a white and gold theme. I love a metallic touch all year round, but it feels especially perfect for the festive season.
Some lingerie-themed-but-not-actual-lingerie ideas. A great way to treat the lingerista in your life when you’re unsure of their size or preferred style! Many of them are also budget-friendly (prices start from around £5) so they’re perfect as stocking fillers or for Secrets Santas too.
I buy and enjoy lingerie at a whole range of prices, from high-street pieces through to the fancy stuff. But the more I learn about lingerie, the more I’ve come to appreciate and desire those finer details you only find from expensive brands. Like many of you though, I struggle to afford them.
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!
