Everybody knows that it is what’s underneath that counts, and this season’s lingerie trend couldn’t be more flesh-flashing. Think delicious, bedroom-inspired concoctions of chiffon, satin, and lace, along with a contrast of striking black lace against gorgeous nude and baby-pink palettes.

In this week’s blog post we give you our guide to lingerie style dresses, as well as our new ‘Trend in Action’ feature, complete with tricks and styling tips from our favourite bloggers.

The lingerie slip dress

Big in the 90s, this slinky number looks great worn both over a turtleneck and on its own under a stylish motorcycle jacket. Who would have thought our sexiest nighties could double for after-dark drinks?

The Babydoll

Be pyjama party chic in this flowing, feminine style. Easy to wear, give your babydoll a cool edge with a pair of ankle boots or, for a girlier look, on-trend chunky heels. You’re welcome!

Nightshirt dress

Dare to bare with a sheer nightshirt dress. With a planned yet effortless appeal, wearing your pyjamas outside has never been more sophisticated.  (Of course, it’s never really been very sophisticated, has it?)
