Gorgeous, playful and flirty, it’s not hard to see why pastel-toned intimates are a perennial favourite among lingerie lovers. From sky blue to mint green and of course blush pink, these skin-flattering shades are just so easy to wear and add an effortless touch of femininity in a jiffy.
To mix things up, how about adding some sensual, sheer lingerie in soft sorbet shades to your collection? After all, transparency is the trend of the season and has been embraced by top designer labels including Christian Dior and Valentino as well as popular style mavens on Instagram. And if you’re still working up the confidence to rock this daring outerwear look in public, what better way to start than by wearing luxurious sheer intimates under your clothing to boost your confidence?
Soft, dreamy bralets
For a touch of romance, you can’t go wrong with a sheer peony pink bralet like Bluebella’s Tabitha Tie-front bra or the Only Hearts Coucou Lola Ruffle Bralette. Made with lightweight, comfortable lace and mesh (perfect for when the temperature starts rising too), these pretty pieces show off a hint of you skin beneath the fabric - a sneaky, flirty way to bare just a teeny bit.
They also double up as lovely layering pieces with daywear. Try slipping on a dark-toned silk camisole with a low neckline to contrast with the soft pastel tones of your bralet. Or pull on a muscle-tee that will reveal hints of your delicate sheer lingerie when you move. Remember, showing a little goes a long way!
Rose-toned, sheer bodysuits are a ladylike choice for those who prefer their lingerie to look subtle yet sexy. We love the vintage glamour of Bluebella’s Rose Dust Amelie Bodysuit. Made with intricate eyelash lace and mesh and with a satin ribbon at the back, this stunning halter piece flatters all skin tones and oozes womanly charm from all angles. Also new this season is Pleasure State’s Rosita Fortuna bodysuit in cameo rose. Design details like a plunging neckline and cut-outs at the waist help to emphasize one’s curves while still allowing for maximum breathability.
We especially love wearing these bodysuits under powersuits where these sexy pieces will go unnoticed by everyone but yourself for a secret yet empowering confidence boost.
Of course, in the bedroom, there’s nothing quite as sexy as wearing see-through layers, like a silk and lace bathrobe over your lingerie. Don’t forget, there are no rules so be inspired by your creativity, wear anything that makes you feel good about yourself and we’re sure your partner will love it too. Have fun!
