Each season the Pantone Color Institute creates the "Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report" highlighting the top colors fashion designers are showing at NY Fashion Week. While these Autumn/Winter for 2019/2020 colors debuted in February, us mortals are just beginning our season now!
I personally love styling intimates in the winter. It's a great time of year to experiment with lace, color and pattern underneath unsuspecting bulky sweaters. We can be much less obsessed about buying all things nude and seamless as we often do in summertime. Why not play with texture and color this Winter? Here is a little inspiration to help (push) you along the path.
Chili Pepper: Collect all the scarlet hues in your lingerie drawer and see if they pass the white shirt test. Red is actually invisible because skin has red undertones and blends well under a white shirt. Loving the Natori Bliss Perfection in Crimson.
Biking Red: The most beautiful deep berry and definitely my favorite of the season. It's going to have to be the Hanky Panky Signature Lace Retro Thong in Cranberry for my strong and powerful ladies!!
Creme De Peche: My new business logo was inspired by this color. This light creamy peach is an updated neutral, but softer and much more special than a classic nude. More into Peach Pink? Chantelle did their famous Rive Gauche bra in Light Peach this season.
Rocky Road and Sugar Almond: While an earthy solid brown and a color resembling caramel may not ooze excitement, pairing a sugar almond colored panty with a Bluestone bra will make you feel special. Empreinte has done their Melody in Glacier, an added benefit, the gorgeous Chantilly lace is seamless! A seamless lace bra is a great way to give lace a try while still remaining seamless under shirts.
Orange is happening. Did that make you shudder? I know, it feels aggressive to me too. Dark Cheddar and Orange Tiger. I'm very sorry that I can't get you excited about orange as the color you never knew you needed! Hard pass.
Fruit Dove: It's PINK, yay! This color reminds me of the perfect shade of pink lipstick, its pretty, bright and extroverted. For my full-figured gals, Elomi has their Cate in Mulberry. Elomi offers an insane size run in this bra, it's a fan favorite, and perfectly appropriate for Breast Cancer Awareness month. #pinkribbon
Galaxy Blue: More of a true blue but definitely similar to cobalt, maybe add a little blue to your workout routine? The Freya Sonic in Ocean Fever is built for high impact activities. This underwire sports bra features a J-hook. If you don't have a J-hook bra in your life you need one. It will allow you to convert into a racer back without doing the old skool strap criss-crossing. Bra design hasn't changed in 100 years but this new-ish feature is life changing, especially in activewear and special occasion bras.
And finally I bring you Eden, a forest green. Green can be sexy and Cosabella never dissappoints with their array of bralette colors. Bralettes remain trendy, but if you are full busted it's almost impossible to rock this look. In comes Cosabella! The Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie Curvy Bralette is designed to fit smaller bands and larger cups and comes in Evergreen.
Happy Shopping and have a great season!
