Stylish Spring Colours To Bring The Sunshine

We all know that every now and again it’s a good idea to brighten up our wardrobes and update it a little. After all, not everyone will know we’re rocking the same style from many seasons ago even in 2018, but deep down you will and that’s all that matters. Better relieve yourself of the guilty conscience hanging over your lingerie drawer now than continuing to regret it later.

So, with that thought driving you on, don’t be afraid to delve into our collection of fresh and exciting spring favourites for this SS18.

Dress Light

Spring this year is all about light neutrals and delicate pastel colours with soft textures. Lace and silk are at the forefront this season, creating a classically elegant look with a contemporary twist. Celebrate as subtlety leads the way with some of our beautiful designs specially selected for this spring.

Stay light and breezy in a boudoir ball gown like this Loveday London piece. Intricate details bring this Zerena Boudoir Gown to life, with exquisite lace features in a gorgeous reddish colour that accentuates multiple skin tones. Not just for the bedroom, this gown works perfectly paired with your favourite summer heels; making it ready for work or play whenever you are. After all, nothing says spring like a long flowing gown adorned with flowers!

Every flawless spring dress needs some sultry underwear for underneath. So, why not pair this sweet dress with something a little bit naughty? Something for you to know and your partner to find out about later. If you need inspiration, look no further than Bordelle’s Red Harness Thong. The perfect spring surprise!

The Perfect Playsuits

For another element to your collection, is the ideal fit for anybody looking for a unique piece this spring. Bodysuits and playsuits are always firm favourites, famous for their stylish look but with a comfortable fit – a must-have for this year. This Mimi Holliday ‘Beau Daquiri’ body is a playful look for this spring. Featuring bold embroidered love heart patterns contrasting the fine mesh material on the body. This body has been tailored to flatter the curves for every figure, creating an enviable silhouette.

Bikini Ready

Lastly, created in anticipation for those long summer nights, the Fleur Of England Dusty Pink Triangle Bikini is a vacation must-have. A sweet yet flirtatious piece, including light padding for comfort and support on the beach. The soft colour combination with strap detailing make this bikini truly unique and a sure winner your friend’s will approve instantly.

Keeping it simple and sweet, with a little bit of naughtiness hidden underneath, is the key to this year’s spring fashion. Floral details paired with light pinks and beige materials come together to help create a spring look to remember. The pieces in this delicate trend can also be teamed with bolder, brighter colours to add another dimension to your look.
