The underwear styles you NEED in your wardrobe this season
Summer 2021 is officially on our radar. The outside world starting to open up, plans are being made again; warm days and long nights are calling. But this summer isn’t just any old summer, oh no! This summer freedom is in the air and fashion is making a fierce comeback.
Glimpses of bold hues, directional strapping, and pretty pastels, we are SO ready to embrace this season’s looks. And just like ready-to-wear fashion has gone through the trend cycle, lingerie has too. We’re casting our attention to the lingerie trends that will leave you refreshed with knowledge and a shopping basket full of gorgeous underwear (we’re just warning you in advance).
What are the summer trends
Summer 2021 is all about standing proud in myriad of bold colours. This season the Bluebella team went all out to design a unique lingerie collection in celebration of Pride, creating a collection that radiates optimism and positivity. Vivid blues, lustrous reds and poppin’ pinks will inject a pop of colour to any outfit, while also supporting a good cause at the same time. What isn’t to love?!
Pastels for spring summer? Ground-breaking. But the old saying ‘if something isn’t broken then don’t fix it’ applies here. Soft blues and seductive pastel pinks (probably one of our favourite hues of the season) are a softer approach to wearing colour and will leave you longing for a carefree summer. A must-have for every lingerie drawer, pastels are actually proven to calm your mood and lift your spirits - just in case we needed another reason to jump on this trend.
High-Rise Thongs and Briefs
Kiss goodbye to low-rise hipsters and make way for high-rise underwear. With high-waisted trousers and loose silhouettes dominating the ready-to-wear scene this season, underwear to match just makes sense. If you’re looking for something supportive and comfortable, a high-waisted thong or brief not only looks and feels amazing, they also have the added bonus of accentuating your body’s natural curves. Need we say more…
Nothing screams summer quite like a bodysuit. Whether it’s lace, sheer, or mesh, they’re the base for any underwear as outerwear look and are so versatile. Feeling smart and sexy? Fun and frisky? Or maybe both? Try a bodysuit on for size. Layer under a blazer for a warm weather tailored look, or for evening cocktails pair with your favourite pair of jeans and heels for a comfy yet cool outfit.
Lace underwear will always be in fashion for so many reasons – how it feels, the way it makes us look, and for its wearability throughout the year. The last thing anyone wants on a hot day is to be stifled by their underwear. Keep it light, stylish and comfortable with a lacey thong and matching bralette which can double up as a top for a sartorial day-to-night outfit. A lace lingerie set can be styled all kinds of sexy.
