Holly's Top 6 Lingerie Picks for Valentine's Day
As someone who works in the lingerie industry, I obviously own a lot of lingerie. However, I never fail to get excited about acquiring a pretty new piece of lingerie just in time for Valentine's Day! There's lots of great choices out there (and lots of marketing telling you what you must wear), but when in doubt go with something that is sexy, comfortable, and reflects your natural personality and fashion inspirations. There's nothing sexier than self confidence, especially on a day where people feel lots of pressure to be extra perfect. While Bella BellaBoutique is one big lingerie playground, some items seem to be calling my name this year.
This LOLA HAZE Screen Goddess Slip is a sweet yet sexy choice for the big day, but will also be useful and wearable year round. As much as I love Valentine's Day, I sometimes have a hard time shelling out for a novelty set that I'll only wear once! This piece is pretty, thematic, and a great basic to have in your lingerie arsenal. (and it comes in black too!)
If you're a traditional romantic type, this Naked Princess Chantilly Robe from their A Thousand Kisses Deep collection is where it is at. It's supremely sexy while maintaining a glamourous lacy look, and can be worn by itself or over another bra and panty set.
Photographs of Anne Vogue pieces are pretty, but nothing beats seeing them in person. The first time I saw this collection at a show in New York, it took my breath away. Her pieces are also comfy, which means you can feel relaxed while looking pretty and thematic. Her Silk Camisole and Silk Knicker in Azalea are a great choice for seducing and lounging this Valentine's Day. This set has just enough details to stand out without sacrificing simplicity or elegance.
Sometimes you want to find some Valentine's Day lingerie, but you're tired of red and pink. Sometimes you want something that is less traditional. Either way, this Serena Babydoll Set byPriscilla Jade should fit the bill. The turquoise mesh is soft and sexy, and the red satin details are just enough red to make the color combination really pop. If they were going to remake Breakfast at Tiffany's, this is what Holly Golightly would wear.
I'm a huge fan of bodysuits, and they can be a great choice for Valentine's Day. They slip nicely under a little black dress for a surprise later, and don't require any awkward quick change action once you get home from that fancy dinner out. This J'Adore Bodysuit by Oh La LaCheri is red, sexy, and perfect for the holiday.
If you're feeling a little burnt out from all the Valentine's Day hype, try this modern and slightly subversive take on the classic rose inspired bra and panty set. The Rouge Seduire Rose Demi Bra is a classic, while the Rouge Seduire Rose Hipster Thong is all harsh thorn inspired angles and cutouts. It's an edgy look, but still a great choice for your Valentine's Day set.
