I am delighted to announce that peaches, pinks and oranges, some of my summer favourites, have absolutely dominated the runway and covered the pages of lingerie catalogues this season. As a woman with a warm, “Autumn” skin tone (learn about your skin tone here!) and one who loves to dye her hair, the warm undertones in corals and oranges compliment my golden freckles and green eyes, my natural hair colour – light brown –and the bright red shades I like to try on every once in a while. For women with cool complexions, rosy pinks, peaches and coral shades that fall into the “neutral” category are equally as complimentary of blue or rosy undertones and chestnut or blonde hair colours. I would say the greatest thing about this palette is how universally flattering it is!
One lovely brand that has picked up on this beautiful summer colour trend is Amulette lingerie. In dreamy laces and flowing chiffons, Amulette’s spring/summer 2011 collections are ultra-feminine, yet bold, in eye-catching patterns and bright colours. The new “Joie” collection features a number of dainty “Bralets” in some stunning colour combos. Pink, peach and orange are mixed together with dark plum in Bralet 1121006 and Babydoll 1021010 for a cooler touch, while Bralet 1121008 combines fuchsia and orange for a warmer look with a modern edge. The “Joie” Bralet 1121010 and matching “little thong” in one beautiful coral colour can go either way!
Amulette’s “Romance” collection offers some equally beautiful pieces in softer, muted peach tones. For any recessionistas seeking a vintage, antiquated look, a warm peach colour provides a sure throwback to the Roaring 20s, while floral laces in a cool, dusty beige (bustier 2121017 and its companion the “French Knicker”) are evocative of a dreamy, turn-of-the-century scene in lovely France.
UK Plus-Sized brand, Curvy Kate, available in cup sizes D-K, has also taken part in the season’s colour trend, featuring some absolutely gorgeous coral pieces in their “Showgirl” collection! The Thrill Me Peach Plum Balcony Bra-and-Thong set, made from bright and shiny satin with a black mesh overlay, is supportive, sophisticated and fun. An even sexier, va-va-va-VOOM look can be found in the Tempt Me Black Scarlet pieces, hot pink pieces with their black lace panels.
Finally, from the Spanish runway, Andres Sarda’s Spring/Summer 2011 lingerie collection, made up of mostly neutral shades, featured show-stopping, head-turning punches of colour in hot pinks and corals, such as the bra and panty set featured below.
So there you have it, darling readers – something for everyone in this summers’ fashion trends!
Wishing you a lovely week, and until next time!
