When it comes to style, what you don’t show can often be the most telling. Take the eternally chic and highly emulated French woman, for example. On average, women in France spend 20% of their annual clothing budget on lingerie. Get inspired and amp up your own underwear drawer this season. Below, we break down the hottest lingerie trends. Panty up!
Bright Now: Not a fan of frills? Slip into something a little more shocking – literally. Electric hues were all the rage at the Spring/Summer 2012 Lingerie Market. We have a total orange crush on this flutter top from Zinke ($77). It’s sexy in the tomboy chic Weird Science babe way and would be the perfect piece to pull on after a day at the beach. We could even imagine pairing it with a high-waisted skirt to show off a sliver of tanned skin.
Prints Charming: Mixed prints have dominated the fashion world for a few seasons now, so it’s no surprise to see the look carried over (er, under) into lingerie. Eberjey’s Walking on Sunshine chemise ($80) successfully toes the line between sexy and sweet. In a perfect world, we’d be lounging on a wrap -around porch sipping lemonade in this country-chic number.
Off With Her Clothes: Bored with black lace? Indulge your inner Marie Antoinette with Myla’s fit-for-royalty half padded demi bra ($195). Miniature pom-pom embroidery, delicious mint blue silk, and a plunging cut make this piece perfect when you’re craving a decadent, decidedly-French feel.
