Holiday Gift Guide: The Lingerie Lover
We almost can't believe it's this time of year again—wow, has 2014 flown by! As we head into the holiday season, those of us who haven't already planned ahead (which is, um, most of us) are starting to think about holiday shopping. Well, dear Lille readers, don't stress it—in the next few weeks we'll give you plenty of tips and suggestions for finding the perfect gift, be it for your sweetheart, your best friend, your mom, or—yes—even your coworker. To start us off, let's talk about the most obvious Lille devotee: the classic lingerie lover. She covets lace and silk, understands that a nice bra can be a little bit of a splurge (but knows it doesn't necessarily have to be), and she treats herself to what she wants. Over and over again. This is a woman who needs the matching panty (or two) and knows how she wants things to fit her. So, you may be thinking, what do you get the woman who has drawers full of beautiful underthings? Our answer is, of course, more lingerie. The key here is to go for something special, with details that you know she loves (perhaps from brands she loves), but that are slightly different than what she already owns. Like most women, she might have a lot of black, so going for something in an unusual shade of grey (like the Clara Whispering from Stella McCartney) or dusty blue (a la the Selma Dancing) is going to stand out in her vast collection. On the flip side, though, we are firm believers you can never own too much black lingerie—so if you're playing it safe there, look for a unique style like the Alicia Underwire from Morgan Lane; the double straps convert into a racerback, making it anything but basic. Along those lines, the caps sleeves of the Nouvel Emoi Underwire Bra are a new, flirty take on the classic black lace demi. And if even she admits she's set with sets, opt for a luxe silk robe like the Classic Kimono or a sexy chemise like All Lace Slip, both by Samantha Chang. If you get her something that shows you recognize her taste and support her passion for pretty underpinnings, believe us, she will love it no matter what!
