A woman’s lingerie expresses who she is. Confident and bold? Shy and reserved? Whenever we go shopping for lingerie, we automatically gravitate toward one style or another. Some might go for the black mesh teddy with matching garters, and others might select a delicate pink bra with dentelle lace. This fall, lingerie styles are everywhere. From angelic pastels to elegant, sumptuous jewel tones, designers have lingerie for every type of woman.
1. DEEP HUED JEWEL TONES
Give off an air of elegance and sensuality that is more refined than the strappy bondage lingerie you see on femme fatale. A European air of sophistication is created through the high-quality silks and rich colors. Silvers and satins were the choice of fabric for designers, and why not? It screams luxury.

2. FRENCH GIRL STYLE-ESQUE PASTELS
Ubiquitous with many designers. Inspired by the quintessential French girl, designs were kept simple in pastels that made even the most provocative styles angelic.

4. BRIGHT POPS OF PINKS AND FUN FLORAL PRINTS
Girly yet still playful and mature. If you wish to look less girly, choose a floral print with a dark background. The black adds depth and maturity to a fun print. However, do go bold with colors and prints. This hot black bra from burlesque queen Dita Von Teese’s new lingerie line can do no wrong. Think pink is too girly? Think again.
