All you need is love.
The stores are bursting at the seams with pink and red. Violent displays of ribbons and heart-shaped boxes we can’t avert our eyes from. Literal tons of diabetes in wrappers and dying roses are being sold to whomever will throw their money the fastest, in sheer panic for not having planned anything sooner.
Love, we’re told is the absolute goal. The mountain, the kind of which there ain’t none high enough, we all ought to climb and summit.
“The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
“Got me looking so crazy right now, your love's
Got me looking so crazy right now (in love)”
“(Everything I do) I do it for you”
“And Iiiiiiiii will always love youuuuu!”
On Valentine’s Day, many flavors of love will be honored: love for a romantic partner, love for family, love for a friend, love for yourself (because, heck, if you won’t do it for yourself, who will?!). And for some, gathering around their shared hatred of Valentine’s Day - a day notorious for putting pressure on everyone for having or not having what you’re “supposed to have in your life” - will be a thing.
So love is everywhere. All you need is love... but a little French lingerie certainly won’t hurt!
Here are five lingerie sets to procure immediately if not sooner, in honor of Valentine’s Day and whichever flavor of it you’ll be celebrating.
EPURE BY LISE CHARMEL
Black? With no lace, no embroidery, no nothing?! Why yes!! Pure simplicity will reveal your unadulterated charms. Less can really be more. French style elegance and the Révélation Beauté thong bodysuit FTW (yes, you heard us right: thong!). Why does Valentine’s Day have to be painted in pink and red? Who cares, history was never made by women who followed the rules anyway. Exists also in nude.
It can be a romantic Valentine’s Day, too. Embrace a vintage look and a perfect bustier shape with a sexy edge and a deep, deep plunge. The Blanche lace plunge unlined bra leaves behind an air of mystery and irresistible flowers tattooed on your <3.
Whomp, there it is! We had to go with a bit of red in case your Valentine’s Day is unthinkable without this rich, vibrant hue. It is, after all, the color of passion and drama. Speaking of, this beauty is a piece from the Art of Now collection by… Passionata.
Craving a Valentine's Day with (the good kind of) drama? Skip the red and go straight to fuschia + black. This Soie d'Amour babydoll slip with a lace up back is an open invitation to desire.
'Full black lace sensuality' level unlocked! It is our personal belief that one can never go wrong with a black lace bodysuit, particularly one as chic and flattering as Eden by Simone. To be worn under, use as a yummy peek-a-boo detail, or put on full display.
Happy Valentine’s Day loves, may it be delicious!
