There’s nothing like Valentine’s Day to put you in a saucy little mood. Whether you’re celebrating a recent engagement, your wedding night, on your honeymoon, or simply spicing up date night, treating yourself (and your partner!) to a sexy little something is the perfect way to ignite the mood.
Sure, Valentine's Day lingerie can teeter into racy territory, but it’s not all Fifty Shades of Grey—if you’re not the type to shy away from the pieces that are, go girl. Gorgeous options run the gamut from sweet-as-can-be bralette and skivvy sets, silky robes, and lacy chemises to more daring selections like tie-up corsets, see-through teddies, and risqué sets complete with thigh-high tights and garter belts—oh, la, la!
A Valentine’s day palette suits both the sweet and sexy shopper—for the former, look to pretty pink shades like blush, rose, and bubblegum. You’ll feel oh-so lovely in Flora Nikrooz’s pale pink silky Yvette Chemise, Cosabella’s lacy cami and brief set, or eberjey’s peachy longline bralette and bow-adorned thong. Or, how about channeling a ‘50s pinup girl in Dolce & Gabbana’s satin balconette bra and high-waist briefs?
Prefer something red-hot? Fiery numbers in crimson, candy apple, and scarlet will do you just right. A garter belt getup from Agent Provocateur, Hot As Hell’s plunging V-neck lace bodysuit, or les boys les girl sheer snakeskin print bra and panty set are sure to spice things up.
If you’re drawn to moodier shades, hues like berry, wine, and ruby are stunning. Or, the fail-safe choice of beautiful black—can’t go wrong there. We love Lonely’s soft floral lace set with lattice strapping, True&Co.’s boudoir-approved corset, or Akiko Ogawa’s seduction lace skirt—sexy is built right into the name!
Perhaps you’re shopping for just a piece or two to add a little zing to everyday underpinnings. A delicate thong, cheeky boy short, or embroidered bra are perfect ways to do so. Anine Bing, Gap, and La Perla have killer options on offer.
Ready to get the mood started? Shop our edit of stunning lingerie ahead whether you’re going for demure, playful, or naughty. No need to limit yourself to just one item—we say scoop up several pieces! Nothing wrong with a selection to keep in regular rotation long after February 14th.
