The Lingerie You Actually Want To Wear

If you too favour the humble granny pant and recoil in horror at a lace number that's almost certainly going too far up your you know where, we've got you covered (literally, full briefs all round) this February.

As much as we love the idea of slipping into some slinky, sexy lingerie as Valentine’s Day approaches, let’s be real and say that the fact we’ve lived in the same loungewear sets on repeat for the past 10 months probably suggests we’re more about comfort than we are sex appeal. Sorry ’bout it.

Underwear options have come a long way since the times of M&S black briefs, with a boom in online stores in particular stocking sexy but soft and often seamless underwear that feels like a second skin.

If you too favour the humble granny pant and recoil in horror at a lace number that’s almost certainly going too far up your you know where, we’ve got you covered (literally, full briefs all round) this February. And spoiler alert, comfort doesn’t have to equal boring when it comes to looks! Underwear options have come a long way since the times of M&S black briefs, with a boom in online stores in particular stocking sexy but soft and often seamless underwear that feels like a second skin. The options are endless and we’re spoilt for choice! 

Instagram savvy brands such as Dora Larsen and Womanhood are paving the way for comfort + colour + cuteness in the knicker department, offering a range of styles, coverage and contemporary designs that fit the priorities of modern women. Summed up so perfectly by Womanhood founder Tanya Robertson, “it’s no longer about choosing between comfort, style or designs that only cater to the male gaze”- we couldn’t agree more!

The Essential Items Every Wardrobe Needs

In the spirit of Kate Nash and the importance of strong foundations, the skeleton of your wardrobe is where it’s at for guaranteeing you never have another ‘I have nothing to wear’ moment again.

In the spirit of Kate Nash and the importance of strong foundations, the skeleton of your wardrobe is where it’s at for guaranteeing you never have another ‘I have nothing to wear’ moment again. And whilst it might seem boring to invest in the neutral, plainer items that don’t thrill you as much as a funky leopard print number, nailing the basics gives you the option to switch in trend-led items quicker than you can press ‘add to cart’- now that’s savvy shopping if we ever did see it!

Depending on your individual style preferences, the exact essentials you opt for may differ, but regardless, your basic items will serve to compliment your personal style as it grows both through trends and general lifestyle changes.


Depending on your individual style preferences, the exact essentials you opt for may differ, but regardless, your basic items will serve to compliment your personal style as it grows both through trends and general lifestyle changes. Not only will nailing your wardrobe essentials help you to get dressed more efficiently on a busy morning (oh for the days when we used to leave the house), but it will also help you cut down on the £40 here and £60 there high-street orders that happen every once in a while but never seem to add much va-va-voom to your rail …


It really is as simple as that! Jeans that hug you perfectly, classic tops that can be layered or worn alone all year round, timeless outerwear in the form of a trench or leather jacket, white shirts that can be dressed up or down, ankle boots, trainers and heels you know you won’t need to buy Compeed for, and you’re well on your way to capsule wardrobe perfection!
