The onset of spring usually prompts us to clean out our winter wardrobes to make room for lighter, flirtier fare, but do you pay attention to switching out your winter lingerie as well?
Just as new fashion collections usher in each season with weather-appropriate apparel, so too do spring lingerie collections differ from season to season. Okay, so truthfully, you may not all begin sporting a soft-cup bra come spring (it may simply not fly with an ample bosom), but you can switch out the burgundy, black and teal-colored bras for lighter spring shades.
And with La Perla’s latest Marquise and Masquerade collections, you get just that — pastel pink, blue and crisp white lingerie. The Marquise collection consists of very pretty silk chiffon pieces complete with feminine Leavers lace, while the Masquerade range, although similar in color options, offers lingerie with ballet-esque tulle detailing and slinky silk.
Spring’s soon-to-be arrival also signals a return to sexy styles: lower necklines, shorter hemlines, backless dresses and tops, bikinis (I know, the thought is horrifying right now), and yes, ditching those birth control flannel pjs for more enticing sleepwear. A few pieces from the two collections that are sure to turn your partner’s head are the Masquerade Babydoll in an icy grey-blue with a sexy plunge neckline and romantic floral lace insert, or, opt for the Masquerade Babydoll Set with flirty front opening.
The Marquise line also offers three very pretty sleepwear options: a very Swan Lake-like delicate babydoll in silk chiffon and floral Leavers lace with scalloped trim, the innocent-yet-alluring Marquise Babydoll Set in sheer silk chiffon and short flutter sleeves, and a watercolour inspired floral silk chiffon slip with lace trim in spring’s of-the-moment neutral hue.
Also available from the Masquerade range is a soft-cup triangle bra in tulle with floral lace overlay. The style is a refreshing option to wear in spring, because let’s face it, who really wants to sport intense padding in the humid and sticky heat?! And while you may not be able to wear the style on a daily basis, there is no better feeling than coming home after a long day out and ditching your bra for something much more comfortable. Am I right, ladies?!
So as spring slowly creeps towards us, take the time to assess your lingerie collection and see what you can swap out for lighter, flirtier and feminine pieces. If anything else, it’s a great excuse to purchase some great pick-me-up pieces!
The Masquerade collection ranges in price from $120-522, while the Marquise range varies from $105 for a brief and $380 for a babydoll. Both collections can be found at laperla.com
