There may still be a definite chill in the air, but the lighter evenings an emerging spring buds have us dreaming of warmer days and new season lingerie looks. In winter, we tend to gravitate towards darker and richer tones, filling our lingerie drawers with black lace pieces, ready to be layered under chunky knitwear and heavy coats. The spring brings about a different aesthetic. Much like shedding our layers of knitwear in favour of something lighter and brighter, so too does our chosen colour palette become softer and paler, taking on a more delicate, romantic look. Opening our lingerie drawer to pretty pastel pinks and whimsical polka-dot prints is a reminder that the winter is nearly over, and it's almost time for our electric blankets to retire back to the cupboards from whence they came.
To help you get into the spirit of spring, we have selected four of our favourite new season looks with some tips on how you can introduce them into your wardrobe now, as well as how you can continue to style them well into the summer months.
