Making Lingerie Part of Your Everyday Wardrobe

Lingerie makes us feel beautiful. It makes us feel empowered. It helps us to love ourselves just that little bit more. With such powers held within it’s a wonder that more of us don’t wear lingerie every single day, even outside the bedroom. And why shouldn’t we?

With that in mind, what can you do to make lingerie a truly decadent part of your day to day wardrobe?

Bodysuit Outerwear

If you are looking to make a daring statement at work or at drinks, then there is no doubt that wearing a bodysuit as outerwear is the move to make. Of course, you wouldn’t wear it on its own! A beautiful lace bodysuit paired with either high-waisted pants or skirts can look absolutely gorgeous. As well as being a powerful statement that shows your unmistakable confidence for the whole world to see.

For this look, we recommend the Serafina Body from Belle et Bonbon. Delicate and absolutely a joy to behold, the lace and design is sure to wow anyone that gets a glimpse. This is an ideal piece to wear (with the necessary covers underneath) for a semi-formal evening with a pair of smart, high-waisted, trousers.

Collar Up

Popular in the 90s, the collar is something which has definitely been making a comeback in 2018. This emerging style means that there is plenty of opportunities to introduce something which is usually only reserved for the bedroom into your everyday wardrobe.

Bordelle’s Amaya Red Strap Collar is a cheeky little way to unleash the devil in you on a day to day basis. And it can be perfectly paired – in secret, of course! – with other pieces such as the Amaya Rose Balconette Bra and Amaya Rose Thong. The vibrant red is luscious and will certainly complement a range of outfit choices, whilst still going under the radar. This can be the ever so subtle way to wear your lingerie as outerwear, so to speak.

Casual Wear

Not everything that we consider to be luxury lingerie is necessarily sexy. For example, there are plenty of kaftans and other types of loungewear that we often associate with the backdrop of a sunny holiday. But are in actual fact very versatile and perfect for a number of occasions.

One of our new arrivals is the Cuba Mid Kaftan from Holland Street. Beautiful, stunning, simply outstanding are a few words that can be used to describe this piece. Handmade in London, it is typically designed for lounging on the beach and relaxing whilst on holiday. However, the beauty of the piece means that it can absolutely be worn for an evening of fun and laughter as well.

All in all, there’s nothing to say that lingerie shouldn’t be a part of your everyday wardrobe. In fact, here at Dolci Follie, you can find a number of great pieces in our full range to do just that. So, what are you waiting for? Add a little bit of extra luxury into your wardrobe today.

Packing Essentials for Your Weekend Getaway

The modern woman is not often confined to one location. Being on the move – whether for business or pleasure – has just woven its way into being an everyday part of life. As such, you may consider it a sad concession that your lingerie concession must remain trapped at home in the wardrobe all the while. Or does it?

Travelling often leaves us without the comforts of home, but lingerie doesn’t actually have to be one of our sacrifices. With that in mind, here are some travel essentials for your lingerie collection on the move.

A Bra of Convenience

One of the biggest issues that comes with travelling is the fact that, often, you don’t always know what’s going to happen. Dinner in a fancy restaurant can easily transform into a moonlit beach picnic the next, nothing is truly guaranteed. For this reason, it is important that your lingerie is equally as flexible as your plans.

A strapless bra can be the best convenience for many of the activities that you will get up to whilst on the road. It can fit perfectly with your business attire as well as your little black dress, whilst also being perfectly luxurious for when you finally get back to the hotel. Try the Else Petunia Ivory Strapless Bra for a classic look with the convenience of the modern age.

Tissue Paper

Lingerie is very delicate, which means that transporting it can often be very difficult. Tissue paper is the best option for packing away your lingerie, as it gives you a delicate and soft environment for the pieces to travel in. It helps to keep the fine fabric from getting worn and keeps the wrinkles away.

A Separate Lingerie Bag

On that same note, lingerie is simply very delicate and so the better you treat it, the better it will fair during trips. Which often means not taking it on the trip in the first place. But, woe is the woman who must spend an extended amount of time away from home and without her favourite lingerie. For that reason, ways to help your lingerie travel better have been devised.

Screen Shot 2018-08-24 at 09.20.17

It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry, so for that reason the Sherry et Cie lingerie case is a travel must-have. Protecting your lingerie is serious business and this case makes it a breeze.

Delicate Wash

As mentioned above, lingerie is delicate and so travelling with a large number of pieces isn’t always ideal. For this reason, you might be better taking a means with which to wash select pieces of lingerie on your trip. If you pack the right amount of delicate wash, for example, you can minimise the amount of lingerie you need to take on your trip and avoid having to transport lots of delicate pieces.

Our Eucalan delicate no-rinse detergent is ideal for hassle-free handwashing whilst on the go. Enriched with lanolin, it is non-toxic and completely phosphate free. It is the fresh, easy, solution to delicate washing that you need on your travels. It comes scented with either grapefruit or lavender.

The modern woman is not a force to be tamed or chained to one spot. Travel is as inevitable as the rising of the sun. So, make sure you are prepared for the necessities of travel with the full range of lingerie and accessories from Dolci Follie.

The Perfect Pair to Heat-Up Your Summer Romance

Whether you’re jetting off on holiday to an exotic location, or having a staycation with an impromptu road trip to make the most of the rare British sunshine, summer is the perfect time for a break. Especially if that means spending time with someone you love. Or, perhaps even meeting your next love? Never say never, after all!

If you’re planning a weekend away with your partner or otherwise, you’re probably putting a lot of thought into what you’ll wear under your clothes or by the pool. It’s a very important decision and one you shouldn’t rush into. A romantic getaway can be a great time to try something new and it’s always fun to experiment a little with our lingerie, as even a small change can give you a sexy boost that makes your getaway plans even more special.

Whatever your summer romance plans, here’s a quick guide to help you discover a pair for those romantic getaways.

Half Cup or Demi Bras

Looking for a look that is flirty, yet still classy? Then a half-cup – or demi – bra is the perfect little piece for you. This partial-cup bra style covers up to half or three-quarters of the breast. Designed to give an uplift, this style is perfect for showing off a little more cleavage, leaving you feeling confident and flirty.

A good example of this style comes from I.D. Sarrieri and their Colette Underwire Half Cup Bra. It has a classic style, with a striking orchid colour palette, making it the perfect undergarment for any outfit. But, the half cup just gives it that little extra touch of sexiness. Making it an ideal confidence boost even as it supports you through a busy workday.

Alternatively, you can also turn up the heat by choosing a demi bra style in beautiful leather, where the cups provide shape and support so you feel as amazing as you look. Pair this bra with a black suspender thong or simple black lace briefs.

Cut-Out Swimwear

Perhaps one of the biggest swimwear trends this year, cut-out styles is sure to make you feel confident and sexy on the beach or lounging by the pool. Make the trend work for you with subtle (or not-so-subtle) cutouts in your bikini top, or with a stylish low-cut open back swimsuit. Take the Fleur of England Paradise Print Cut Out Swimsuit, for example. It’s bright, light and with just that little touch of flirty, making it just the right thing whether you’re at the beach or just down at your local pool.

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 11.19.43

And it has the extra benefit of making you feel like you’re on holiday even when you’re not.

Feeling even more adventurous? For a style that’s a little more daring, and one that will really turn up the heat, choose a brightly coloured bikini or swimsuit with daring cage-strap detail across the breast area. This look would work well with some high cut bikini bottoms, or a plain sarong for beach-to-bar glamour.

Whether you want to turn up the heat in the bedroom or on the beach this summer, the varied and tantalising collection on offer here at Dolci Follie is bound to have what you are looking for. So, what are you waiting for? Shop the full selection now and find the summer heat you have been missing.
