New Year’s resolutions are a lot like New Year’s parties: filled with anticipation and over before you know it. However, we want to help you out with a few resolutions you’ll actually be excited to stick to. That’s why we’ve put together our top picks for five style resolutions for 2017. While we’re passionate and focused on lingerie, these simple ideas about finding your own sense of style are all about what to wear, how to wear it, and experiencing your best and most confident year ever.
1. Love Your Body
Perhaps more than any other quality, 2017 lingerie is about is about being empowered. Current lingerie trends in crossover innerwear/outerwear, stunningly beautiful athletic lingerie, and remarkable surges in the focus on plus size lingerie prove the point. Here are a few tips to nail this resolution:
- Identify what you love about your body. While the year-end emphasis on eggnog cocktails and butter-filled desserts may have you feeling less than infatuated with yourself, take time to consider what you truly love about yourself, both inside and out.
- Dress accordingly. Aim for lingerie that accentuates both your most loved physical features and your inner personality. For instance, if you love your bustline and are feeling playful, consider a retro inspired baby doll. Got great calves and are feeling powerful? Opt for a risque teddy that calls attention to your legs and your vibe.
2. Mix It Up
2017 lingerie is all about contrast. Feminine materials with bold geometric shapes, wild fabrics on traditional designs, vivid colors from opposite ends of the spectrum, and a tendency toward unexpected prints and patterns are dominating the season’s best lingerie trends. Here’s how to land this resolution in style:
- Keep it interesting. Just as you’re hoping to make positive changes and explore new things in your life, cultivate an appetite for this same sense of adventure in your lingerie selections.
- Seek out the unexpected. Look for lingerie that has a bit of a twist. For example, this sheer mesh teddy from Hauty takes the classic lingerie shade of bubblegum pink and reinvents it in an edgy, contemporary design. You might also find opportunities for contrast in accessorizing your lingerie look. For instance, try pairing brightly colored shoes and jewelry with a neutral-toned bodysuit, or opt for an elegant updo with a racy, barely-there lingerie set in leather.
3. Keep Your Finger on the Pulse
If you’ve never taken the opportunity to track lingerie trends in fashion, 2017 is the year to do it. From little details to overall design, here are just a few of our favorite things that are about to change the game in 2017 lingerie:
- Elemental luxury: High end touches are nothing new in lingerie, but this season is seeing the rise of opulent detailing on even the simplest designs. Delicate straps, beads, and luxe finishing touches are dominating fashion, lingerie, and swimwear alike.
- Integration of active wear: If you’ve been wondering (like many women) why lingerie options have been mostly uncomfortable since the dawn of time, new innovations in flexible material, breathable fabrics, and patterns inspired by an active, diverse lifestyle are starting to offer an unparalleled degree of comfort with a decidedly striking allure.
- Lavish lace: Classic lace impulses are finding their perfect reinvention throughout retro inspired and contemporary lingerie trends alike, as shown by this vivid rosetto lowrider thong and bra set from Cosabella.
- Unexpected materials: In both clothing and lingerie, unexpected textures and fabrics are making a major impression this season. We recommend the high-drama draping and polka dot mesh of the Music Hall Draped Bodysuit from Maison Close.
4. Expand Your Comfort Zone
Whether for work or play, experts tend to agree that there’s great value in venturing outside your comfort zone. What better way to try new things than in your experimentation with lingerie trends? Here’s how to get started:
Take a good, hard look at your lingerie drawer. Intimate apparel is no place to get stuck in a rut. Many women accidentally end up with a bedroom wardrobe that’s all black, or all cotton, or all one particular style. Look for patterns of consistency, and then make a bold choice in the opposite direction that excites you.
- Do something unexpected. 2017 lingerie has made it more possible than ever to explore the trends you desire, from unconventional designs and shapes to underwear as outerwear. Try pairing a sexy but subtle corset with a loose, box-cut blazer and sneakers for a definitely contemporary look.
5. Follow Your Heart
Of course, finding the best style for you is not just about tracking current lingerie trends. The best lingerie should be lingerie that makes you feel authentically sexy, beautiful, and empowered as an individual. This means resolving to stay tuned in to your own unique impulses, interests, and desires. Fortunately, 2017 lingerie has a lot to offer in the way of personal self expression. From cutting edge chemises to bring out your inner vixen to stunning bra and panty sets to rev up your everyday style game, this is the perfect time to start acting (and dressing) like your favorite version of you.
