The Lunar New Year is quickly approaching. While you’re on the mission to update your wardrobe with new items from the CNY capsule collections, don’t forget the undergarments too. This week, we’ve selected some of our absolute favorites, many of which are almost too pretty to stay hidden!
Italian lingerie label Intimissimi is synonymous with classic designs and femininity. The intricate lace work on the Giorgia Lace Balconette Bra is matched with a sensual design that is perfect to go with dresses with plunging necklines.
The Pretty Flowers Eleonora Balconette Bra, on the other hand, gives a youthful vibe, thanks to the white decorative lace details on the band.
Even if you’re the only one to appreciate just how gorgeous a piece is, make it count. Private Shop’s Marie Jo – Judith Embroidery Push-up Bra features floral embroidery created by French embroidery specialist Potencier. The vibrant color palette of course screams CNY, but it makes the design such an effortless piece to transition to your spring wardrobe too.
If you want something slightly understated, the raspberry-toned PrimaDonna Sophora Underwire Bra is just as cute!
For those going for styles that hug your body and wears like a second skin, Her Own Words’ Modern Max Full Coverage Lightly Lined Bra, Modern Max Non Wired Full Coverage Lace Bra, and Soft Touch Thin Pad Bra provide just the right amount of support you need, without clinging too tightly on your body. The soft fabrics also ensure the bra stays undetected underneath form-fitting outfits or tees, checking off all the boxes as trusty staples.
If you’re inclined towards designs that are simply irresistible, Australian lingerie brand Wolford’s Venus Push-up Bra is an interplay of opaque band and barely-there lace, for that unparalleled sense of sensuality. Either the Venus Tanga HighWaist or Venus String Panties from the same range would complete the set flawlessly too.
Something for him too
Go matchy-matchy with your beloved. Calvin Klein has just launched its Chinese New Year Capsule Collection, spanning a range of underwear trunks and bralettes. The vibrant low-rise feature a festive gold logo waistband, one with all-over Year of the Ox prints, another in bright red with a small logo badge at the back.
From head to toe
Don’t forget to refresh your socks drawer too, especially when this year’s get-togethers are most likely held at your bestie’s place or yours.
Italian fashion brand Calzedonia has in store a stunning array of Patterned Non-Slip Cotton Ankle Socks, all featuring the Year of the Ox motifs and year 2021 designs, to ensure your toesies are warm; your style game is on-point. Not to mention, the fun designs are perfect as gifts too!
If you’re still a little intimidated by a complete makeover from your usual colorways to CNY-appropriate reds, these would make a perfect little shout-out!
