They look good enough to eat, don’t they? Don’t worry, this isn’t a post about how to make tempting macaroons or sugared almonds. No, it ‘s about one of the biggest trends to hit the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalk. Designers such as Chanel, Burberry and Emilia Wickstead all featured a pick ‘n’ mix of sugar-sweet candy colours in delicious shades of bubblegum pink, parma violet purple, lemon yellow, peppermint green and cornflower blue. This is no soft, girly trend of flowing pale pastels, but rather strong blocks of colour in luxurious lace, metallics, sheers and silk that all give this season’s trend a much more structured look, whilst remaining ultra feminine.
And, of course, this mouth-watering trend lends itself perfectly to all those lingerie pieces we love so much, in fabrics we just can’t resist from silks and satins to sheers and lace. I have put together a great selection of Fox and Rose’s sweetest candy pieces you will definitely have a crush on.
One of Fox and Rose’s newest additions, the Penny Peppermint bra, brief and suspenders by British independent brand, Playful Promises, are constructed in peppermint green mesh and overlaid with delicate eyelash lace, giving the range a sweet but ultra sexy look.
The Bisou Bisou Cherie Mimi Holliday bra and knickers in bubblegum pink silk satin is delicately overlaid in a contrasting pink eyelash lace. Fully padded and perfect for everyday, this is both sensual and thoroughly wearable.
This stunning Bluebird lounging camisole and shorts by Shell Belle Couture are made from baby blue washed silk. Both pieces feature delicate gathers over the hip which, not only creates a Great Gatsby vintage look, but also, clings to the body in all the right places.
The utterly sexy Alectrona naked ‘V’ bra and classic knicker by Damaris brings that sumptuous strong lemon yellow in ultra sheer tulle. It’s trimmed in matching silk and Swarovski beads of gold, amethyst and lilac, perfect for those adventurous days when you’re feel a little more daring.
The La Vintage Rose range by Rosy in sugar sweet pink satin is just about as feminine as you can get. Trimmed with white antique effect lace and available in a plunge, padded bra, high waisted knickers, brief and thong, this will surely fulfil your Rose side.
This cornflower blue satin corset by Vollers, one of the oldest corset manufacturers currently in existence, is devastatingly gorgeous. Its longline, over-the-bust shape gives it that classic corset look and the opulent colour is reminiscent of those favoured by Marie Antoinette.
And if you’re still stuck for inspiration, how about this beautiful candy colour make-up and incredible hair from Dior’s SS14 promo? I’m not sure I could get away with it at work!
