Valentine’s Day Lingerie

tumblr_nqrfh1VVlP1teoqwzo2_r1_1280Q. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year I don’t want to get it wrong! Are there any trends I should be considering when buying a gift of lingerie?

A. Penny English, owner of See-Saw Lingerie in Hale, Cheshire said: “The lingerie market has always lagged a bit behind mainstream fashion trends and in most cases, especially when considering a gift, it’s best to stick to timeless classics such as black and white. Black is a lingerie staple and every girl’s must have; look for sets crafted from the softest satin and opulent lace.

“However if you would like to consider the trends the main themes emerging this season are: floral (for spring, of course), the colours (mint, gold, orange, coral, yellow and pink), the neutrals (beige, blush, brown, black and grey), texture/embroidery and sheer/illusion tulle.

“If you can’t decide on lingerie you can also consider a sexy silky slip, the Nineties are making a comeback for Spring/Summer 2016 and (if she’s the adventurous type) the underwear as outerwear spaghetti strap dress made famous by Kate Moss is back!”
