Sophisticated and sexy: Jewel-toned Lingerie

From deep sapphire to rich ruby, the bold and sensual hues of AW17’s most covetable lingerie will add splashes of luxe colour to your wardrobe

It is always a good idea to have a well stocked supply of underpinnings in classic shades of black, white and blush pink. But it is also fun to have pieces in other colours, just to keep things interesting - and unpredictable. So take a plunge and build a more varied lingerie wardrobe, with AW17’s stylish jewel-hued underthings, which come in the luscious tones of precious gems, to add a pop of grown-up sizzle to your daily wear. 

Eberjey Lila
The complexion-flattering deep ruby Lila range by Eberjey comprises a comfortable bralet and cheeky hipster brief as well as sleepwear including a chemise, camisole and pants. Made with ultra-soft jersey and mille fleur patterned lace, these pieces are elegant yet alluring.

Stella McCartney Jasmine Inspiring
If you need to be eased into wearing coloured lingerie, check out Jasmine Inspiring, the new ladylike range by Stella McCartney that’s made with pretty floral lace. It comes in a sophisticated shade of garnet red which is so deeply pigmented, it might even look black in low light. The sensuous bodysuit with a plunging V-neckline is curve-hugging in all the right places. There’s also a soft cup bra and contour plunge bra as well as a thong and bikini brief so you can customise the level of coverage you are comfortable with.

Bordelle Kizette
Bordelle’s striking emerald and black Kizette soft triangle bra and adjustable ouvert brief is ideal for the bold dresser who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it. Made with scalloped and embellished Swiss tulle, the geometric embroidery of this sexy twin set (pieces sold separately) evokes the stylized motifs of the opulent Art Deco era.

Eberjey Colette
Green is a surprisingly flattering shade on Asian skin tones, but if bright turquoise seems a little much, start with a deeper tone like malachite green. Eberjey’s Colette racerback bralet and classic lace boythong are made with a sheer honeycomb lace that’s comfortable enough for everyday wear while still making you feel sensual in your own skin.

Heidi Klum Intimates Fleur Fantasy
Keep things sweet and romantic with Heidi Klum Intimates’ topaz Fleur Fantasy soft cup bra and thong brief. The modern triangle lace bra cups and scalloped trim on the briefs ensure a good fit with an elegantly sporty look. 

Bluebella Isabella
Loungewear doesn’t always have to come in pastels (although we love these pretty hues too). Be a knockout even on a lazy day at home with Bluebella’s eye catching sapphire Isabella camisole and short set. Made with soft satin and lace trim, this figure-flattering set is comfortable enough to be worn all day. To spice things up, check out the Isabella chemise which offers saucy glimpses of what lies beneath thanks to its sheer lace v-neck bust panel.
