Holiday Gift Guide: The Hipster
Here in Portland, the word hipster gets thrown around a lot—and while yes, there are parts of hipster culture that clearly border on the ridiculous, it ain't all bad! For us, the Lille hipster is a fashion-conscious, often quality-conscious shopper who is looking for unique pieces to pair with her carefully curated wardrobe. And fortunately for this shopper, it's an exciting time for lingerie—ready-to-wear fashion is paying attention to undergarments, and with so many female-driven independent lines emerging, things are finally getting, well, cool. If you have such a woman in your life, you know she'll want something that's on-trend, but not so out there that it's going to sit in her closet. Brands like Nais and For Love and Lemons, with their abundance of straps and cutouts, will allow her to indulge in the bondage-lite craze that's happening—go for a piece like the Longline Bondage Bralette, and she can wear it with a floaty tank to make it appropriate for day time. For something with a less, um, dominatrix-y vibe, a lace cropped top like the Nightingale from Only Hearts or Orion from Morgan Lane are perfect. She can layer it and show it off or wear it around the house for a sexy lounge piece. If her style is a little more subtle, go for a brand like Velvette; she takes classic French silhouettes but juxtaposes them with unique fabrics and prints (the results are feminine without being fussy). And for the ladies who want luxe, stylish basics that are still really comfortable, Base Range is the go-to. Their cotton and bamboo-blend pieces have won over the fashion crowd worldwide, making them an indie staple. Looking for a stocking stuffer? Get her a pair of their cozy Over Knee Socks to keep warm when her outfit requires a short hemline. All in all, when shopping for the hipster girl, keep in mind that she probably views her underwear as an important part of her closet. Find her something that will elevate her fashion game and you'll make her holidays totally happy!
