Every now and again, I’ll have a realization that shakes up my lingerie routine (like, buy enough underwear and skip the nude bra). Otherwise, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to underthings. But it has finally clicked that pretty lingerie doesn’t have to be just for special occasions — it can be an everyday thing.
We love the lingerie store Journelle, which gets its name from an old French word meaning “daily.” So, we asked their experts to tell us what pieces every woman should try in her lingerie routine. Here are their five must-haves, and how we’d wear them…
7:30 a.m. on Thursday: Making coffee in a silky robe, in cream, black or blush.
6 p.m. on Friday: Pulling a soft tee over a T-shirt bra and heading out to meet up with friends. (This one, our favorite, has an eyelash lace trim that lies completely flat under your shirt.)
10 a.m. on Saturday: Lounging in bed with a book in pretty pajamas. (These would be lovely for traveling, too.)
8 p.m. on Sunday: Wearing a soft, sexy chemise for a romantic night at home.
Good news: Journelle’s big Friends & Family sale is happening right now. Take 20% off all full-price items with the code FNF2016, good through the end of May. Thank you so much, Journelle!
Thoughts? Which would you wear? What are your essential lingerie pieces?
