With Christmas and the New Year now just a stone’s throw away, it’s time to start planning our lingerie picks for the days and weeks ahead. While the festive season is often a hectic one, hand-picking some stylish pieces that fuse both comfort and elegance is a great way to indulge in some yuletide cheer, without breaking the bank or overindulging on calories. With that in mind, we’ve hand-picked some fabulous festive lingerie trends – from underwear as outerwear, to the ultimate indulgence of sensual satin loungewear. Whether they’ll be making an appearance on your Christmas wish-list or you’ll be treating yourself to something pretty, read on for some yuletide inspiration that will see your Christmas season go off with a bang.
Underwear as outerwear
While underwear as outerwear is hardly a new trend, the holiday season means that the rules can really be overturned. What’s usually worn underneath can be heavily exposed as the Christmas countdown begins, and by choosing a sexy yet subtle bodice to double as a super sexy top under a tuxedo or with a flirty mid-skirt, or a stunning lace bra visible under a silk shirt or cashmere cardigan, you can really up the ante with your underwear this Christmas.
The timeless sophistication of silk makes it a great underwear option whatever the time of year, but something about its soft and sensual finish makes this fabric one of our go-tos whenever festive cheer begins to takes hold. From lingerie to loungewear to a stylish robe and beyond, why not indulge in something silk for the merry-making season?
Something of a divisive trend, while velvet underwear isn’t for everyone, there’s no denying it’s one of the most festive fabrics around. While nothing new in the fashion stakes, it’s only recently that velvet has filtered into the intimate apparel sector. And if it’s a trend you want to try out, we suggest opting for a velvet bra, slip or robe; perfect for curling up and getting cosy in this Christmas.
Forget about wearing a onesie this Christmas – while they may be the height of all things Hygge, they’re anything but elegant. Invest in a set of soft and cosy satin pyjamas. The type of nightwear that’s always in fashion, satin pyjamas offers a luxurious and sensual style, while being soft against the skin and just as comfortable as any other type of loungewear. Whether you’re in the mood for a more modest pairing, or are looking for a flirtatious one piece, choose a stylish satin option for the ultimate festive look that will last you into Christmas and beyond.
Delicate lace bralettes been embraced by fashionistas and underwear aficionadas alike. Rich in both comfort and style, not only are they incredibly comfy, but the non-padded style is perfect for wearing under white shirts when you're looking to expose just a tiny amount of underwear. While classic colours such as black, white or nude will always make a stylish statement, why not opt for a splash of colour such as a berry or a blush for some extra va-va-voom as Christmas fast approaches?
