Valentine’s Day is a time for red hearts and red roses. Although I love red lingerie, especially in dark, rich clarets and scarlets, I think other colors and prints read romance in a less conventional way. This season we have a fresh new color palette that extends from blush to peach, pink to fuchsia. And black is always sexy and gorgeous, on any woman’s skin tone.
I’ve done a little Valentine’s Day Lingerie Round-Up that will keep you out of the Red Zone and bring you into new colors and prints that every woman would love to add to her lingerie drawer. The bonus is that you get to wear this all year-round, without feeling like you look like a V-Day gift. Each of these is a beautiful gift for yourself, and for him to buy for you. Feel free to forward your favorite as a hint to your guy, or do what a stylist friend of mine does-print our your favorite and hang it on the fridge. Fingers crossed he’ll get the hint (just make sure he knows where he can buy it).
