February 14th, the day of love. Leading up to this romantic holiday, millions of roses will be imported to Canada and billions will be spent on wine, candy and jewellery. Of course, thousands of men and women will also be shopping for something sexy… Lingerie! Yes, Valentine’s Day is the time to break out the garters and that red, lace teddy that you’ve been saving.
We wear underwear every day, so why do we only bring out the sexy skivvies on special occasions? What we wear with our lovers, to bed, and at home should be just as much a priority as what we wear out on the streets.
After the 9 to 5, comfort is key but you should never sacrifice style. You won’t be cooking dinner in a power suit or a bodycon dress, but what do you change into? Worn out leggings? Your boyfriend’s varsity jersey? We love the home and strive to keep it beautiful, doesn’t it deserve more than old sweats? Loungewear is just as important as that LBD, it’s only what you wear most of the time.
With Athleisure on runways all over the world there’s no shortage of stylish, comfortable, loungewear options. Not content with your current go-tos? Check out the “La Vie en Lounge” collection at @lavieenrose. They have coordinating separates in charcoal, light grey, and baby pink that are sexy and affordable. Long sleeve tops with cold shoulder cut-outs, shorts, camis, drawstring pants, and hoodies. Get it girl! You can be a couch potato and make it look seemingly chic.
Whether you prefer to dream in fleece, lace or simply in the buff, curating your sleep attire is a must. Opt for a pair of capris and a classic graphic PJ tee; simple, cute, and flirty. The Colette sleep shirts @blushlingerie are perfect for your next “Netflix and Chill” date or guilty midnight trip to the fridge.
For the classic silk Mayfair wearer, Kip Sleepwear @kip_sleepwear, is encouraging women to invest in Egyptian cotton pieces with customizable designs. Whatever you choose, may you sleep soundly. It’s exhausting when you slay all day.
