Lingerie is one of those things almost none of us have enough of. Because it’s a strictly treat-yourself purchase, you need an occasion to wear it—and even then, you need an excuse to drop $100-ish on something you’ll wear for a mere few minutes. This occasion/excuse double whammy comes around very rarely, but one of the few times it does is during the holidays. ’Tis the season for buying things for yourself and everyone else. So why not stock up on sparkly, shiny holiday lingerie you can whip out in December and wear long after?
One of the most beautiful things about holiday lingerie is that it offers festivity and versatility in equal measure. Red, green, gold, silver—these rich tones feel inherently celebratory. They evoke visions of the most charming time of year. Of cozy, crackling fireplaces. Of piping-hot vats of indulgent hot cocoa. Of presents, of loved ones, of laughter. At the same time, though, even the boldest reds, the deepest greens, and the shiniest silvers don’t feel holiday-exclusive. These shades are worth sporting during any time of year—and they’re sure to stun every time you slip into them.
But holiday lingerie’s greatest strength lies not in its festivity, its versatility, or its beauty. It lies in the fact that holiday lingerie makes us a little happier to spend time indoors. Once the temperatures drop, the thought of venturing outside goes from unappetizing to unfathomable. And in these moments where we feel confined to the interiors of our homes, there’s something special about a piece of clothing that allows—nay, invites—us to have a good time. To play dress-up. To wink at ourselves in the mirror. To have a little fun with our partners.
Holiday lingerie is as experiential as it is aesthetic. And during a season when we all need a little more to do, that duality goes a long, long way.
