It might be hard to believe with the sun out, but we’re now in the Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion season, and the colours of the new lingerie collections are starting to edge towards Autumn trends. And, much as we love neons and candy brights to bring some colour into our wardrobes during the winter months, we also love the cooler, more sophisticated shades of winter.
One of the most flattering colours for underwear, in our opinion, is midnight blue. Where black can sometimes leave us looking a little washed out, deep navy blue is more gentle against pale English skin. In fact, we’re pretty sure this colour looks great against all skin tones, which is why we’ve picked it as one of our colours of the season. Here are some of our favourite styles. Make sure you also check out our selection of tempting teal lingerie, our other star pick for this season.
Intimissimi Bellissima Ancienne Broderie Coppa B Bra
This pretty push up bra for smaller cup sizes from high street retailer Intimissimi combines moulded cups with a satin trim on the top of the cups and feminine lace below and around the band. Also available in ivory, we think this beautiful inky blue is just gorgeous, and at only £25.99 make sure you pick up the matching tulle and lace briefs or shorties, both £15.99.
