Ah Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Are you a fan of this ‘love holiday’? Or do you absolutely dread it? For me it’s not really a big deal. I never thought of it as anything good or bad. Whenever I was in a relationship or was dating someone I would participate and give out a card, a gift or do something special but it was never a priority. When I was single the fact that everybody was going crazy for it around me didn’t bother me either. I think you need to look at it as a fun opportunity to indulge your loved one and that’s it. Don’t let it bother you if you’re single or don’t put too much pressure on yourself to do something grand if you’re involved. My advice is to just have fun with it. So speaking of fun, I wanted to give you some fun and sexy Valentine’s Day lingerie ideas you can play around with.
The word lingerie can scare some people off. It can evoke images of garter belts and some uncomfortable contraptions but you don’t have to go that extreme to be sexy. All you need to do is spice up your current wardrobe and change up that plain old bra and panties for something a little bit more special. Play around with colors, patterns and fabrics to bump up that sex appeal. Below I’ll share with you some current trends that you should definitely try.

Fun And Sexy Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas
1. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – Vibrant Colors
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to add more color to your lingerie. It’s all about the reds and the pinks but you can definitely play around with the shades and pick the one that works well with your skin tone. I for one absolutely love black especially when it comes to sexy underthings. But when I think of Valentine’s Day or Christmas it makes me want to try some other colors. You can go for the lighter shades like soft pink or plum or go the opposite way and pick vibrant reds, violets or burgundy.
Here I found this beautiful Rose + Vine burgundy lace bralette and matching panties.

2. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – High Neck Lace Bralette
I absolutely love this new trend of the high neck bralette. It’s so unusual and feminine. This is not your everyday look, I admit. It may not be the most comfortable bra to wear all day. But for a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day it’s perfect. The intricate lace makes it so much more elaborate and fancy without that much effort. This is a showstopper look if you’ve ever seen one.

3. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – Velvet Texture
Some people may have a love and hate relationship with velvet. I am one of those people. Not all velvet articles of clothing can be flattering due to the thickness of this fabric. But I find that subtle amount of velvet can go a long way. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of velvet bralettes in all kinds of beautiful colors and I am in love. You can even mix and match velvet with other fabrics such as lace to make the outfit stand out more.
Here I mixed a beautiful Rose + Vine peach velvet bralette with black lace panties.

4. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – Sexy Back
One way to make an outfit unique is by revealing something special. And I think there’s nothing better than showing off a sexy back. You can look for a bra that is pretty simple but has a beautiful detail in the back. There’s something very sexy about having a lacy back detail you only reveal when you turn around. It can be a simple strip of lace that cascades alongside the middle of your back. Once you show it off it will definitely have that wow factor. Your partner will surely have their jaw on the floor when they see it.
I was fortunate to have found this very pretty Rose + Vine black lace bra that has that amazing lace detail in the back.

5. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – Fun And Flirty Undies
Now that you have found that amazing bralette you need to find matching undies to go with it. These days there are so many options for underwear to suit different tastes. My advice is to pick an item that you feel comfortable in but one that still looks sexy. This can be a full bottom, bootie shorts, bikini or a thong. Look for pretty and feminine details such as lace, mixed fabrics, unique patterns or details like satin bows and ties. There’s usually lots of deals you can find in stores or online when you buy a certain amount of undies. So take advantage and stock up on a few.

Alongside that gorgeous bra and coordinating undies you still need something to spice up the look. How about some great stockings to add to the mix? You can opt for stay ups, fishnets or embroidered pantyhose. There are lots of choices out there. Pantyhose and stockings have come a long way and now they’re even more comfortable. I used to absolutely hate wearing them but I have since found some great quality pairs that are pretty comfortable and easy to wear. Check out these great choices below.

7. Valentine’s Day Lingerie Ideas – Pretty Heels
To finish off the look you’re going to need some pretty heels. The key here is to find shoes that you can be comfortable walking in but that are also pretty to look at. Not everybody is absolutely at ease in high heels, myself included, so make sure you don’t go overboard. Stick to your comfort level and look for shoes that are well made and look feminine. Below are some great examples of sexy heels that are still very comfortable and should suit every taste.
