Whimsical prints. Chantilly lace. Balconette bras. Bralettes. Boy shorts or barely there cutouts. It doesn’t matter your preference. It’s all fun to put on and show off (even if it’s just you dancing around your house in your skivvies).

Sexy and sophisticated lingerie is en vogue all year round and what better to go with a new you in a new year than some new unmentionables.

Forget cotton, it’s time to spice up your underwear drawer.

Never thought you’d say Gap and ooh-la-la in the same sentence? Well, Gap loves lingerie, and surprisingly they have some really simple and beautiful styles.

Model/artist Sasha Pivovarova designed this fairytale inspired Sleeping Beauty ensemble for Gap Body.   It’s simple, but feminine.  And if you like an extra bit of spice, is available in a satin-esque Gunmental Boselli.

Lingerie doesn’t have to be flashy or break the bank to be perfect.  Honeydew lingerie can do no wrong, and their Fine Mesh Ruffle Bralette is fun and flirty with tiered ruffles.  They also do the boy short just right. Cut for coverage without sacrificing cute.

We can’t quite talk about lingerie without mentioning that maven of unmentionables Kiki de Montparnasse.  Some pieces aren’t for the faint of heart (in design and price tag) but her Muse Collection Heart Panty will surely make any heart pitter- patter.

Called the sexiest website in the world, Luxury Lingerie by Agent Provocateur can likewise make a pulse race.  It’s exquisitely feminine and luxurious, and you won’t mind being caught in your knickers.  The Love Collection, created with French Leavers lace is naughty and girly all at once.  The Love Demi Bra, Love Slip, or Love Brief are the perfect additions to any panty drawer.
