With two May bank holidays on their way and the summer drawing ever nearer our thoughts are turning to that summer getaway. We all dream of jetting off to somewhere warm, somewhere where we can relax and forget about the world back home. But the one thing everyone gets apprehensive about doing before they step onto the plane is the dreaded packing. What if it’s really hot? What if it turns cold? Will we be going out somewhere special? Will we be doing a lot of walking? These are some of the questions that go through our mind as we’re choosing what to take. However, there is a solution and you can apply it to your lingerie as well as your clothes, it’s called a capsule wardrobe.
So, what is a capsule wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of clothing items that all be mixed and matched to create a multitude of outfits. First start by selecting a pair of jeans, a smart pair of trousers, a light summer skirt and a dress that could be worn either during the day or in the evening. Then you need to choose a small number of tops, a couple of camisoles, t-shirts and cardigans and perhaps a jumper, that can be worn with every item.
Therefore, whilst you’re on holiday, you could team a white silk camisole with jeans and flip flops for a casual day, with a summer skirt and sandals for a slightly more formal day look and then with smart trousers and heels for an evening look.
Applying this to your holiday lingerie
You can do much the same thing with your lingerie too. Just pick one white or nude bra, one black bra and one coloured bra. Then choose a pair of knickers for each day and one or two suspender belts that will mix and match with all bras. You can then add one special piece that can be worn on an evening out or even a night in!
We’ve put together 14 pieces of Fox and Rose lingerie that can all be mixed and matched to create over 20 different lingerie combinations to show you how easy it is.
