Similar to ready-to-wear and haute couture, trends too come and go in the world of your pretty little underthings. After all, your negligée collection gives you a boost of confidence, and you can’t be caught wearing the same old worn-out intimates year on year.

This season, we show you five of the latest lingerie designs that are huge right now. From delicate bow details to decadent star prints, upgrade your delicates drawer with these hot pieces that will make you feel empowered and sexy.


1. Granny Goodness

Scoot over, thongs. Granny underwear is all the rage this season, and is something we think you should get behind. Fashion insiders point out that there has been an aesthetic shift in lingerie—away from the pushed-up, super-skimpy variations—toward something more relaxed.

So ditch the notion of “less is more” and go for pieces that provide fuller coverage. Comfortable yet stylish, this trend evokes a sense of 90s glamour. Opt for high-waisted knickers or a long-line lace bralette to relish in this fad.


2. Starry Night

Nothing’s more secretive and sultry than a midnight rendezvous under the stars. This sense of mystery is reflected in the use of star motifs in the underwear world. From Stella McCartney to Hanky Panky, these starry print pieces — which exude an interesting blend of flirtatiousness and sweetness — are big news right now.


3. High Contrast

Neon hues are a Fall/Winter 2018 trend on the runways, so it’s not surprising that these crazy, bold shades have spilled over into the realm of lingerie. So, ditch your blacks, whites and nudes and add a dose of highlighter turquoise, shocking fuchsia and zesty orange into your intimates.


4. Words Matter


Let your intimates do the talking. Pieces that sport embroidered words and slogans are gaining popularity for the spunky edge they add to your undergarment closet. Show off your personality by getting one that speaks your mind.


5. Bows Over Bros


Why settle for one thing when you can have the best of both worlds? In the world of lingerie, pieces that are both saucy and girly at the same time are a hit. Bows with lace? Check. Ribbons and tulle? Yes please! Flirty and feminine, we won’t say no to that.
