BLACK, LACE & METALLIC BRALETTE FROM LA SENZA
Whilst admiring my new item I got thinking about the importance of underwear in a fashion context, and how we often overlook it when getting dressed each morning - at least I do any way. In a similar way that killer heels can make you feel more confident in an interview, or a designer bag can make you feel on top of the world, making a little effort with what's underneath is a great canvas on which to create your outfit.

Another way to spice up your eveningwear in a subtle, somewhat secretive way, is to trade in your tights for a pair of stockings or hold-ups. Not only will these make you feel a little sexier, but they're far more comfortable than tights in the summer! I find that online retailers such as tightstightstights.co.uk are a great place to get these as they have such a vast selection... and you could always pop some tights in your basket ready for winter whilst you're at it!
What are your thoughts on matching underwear and lingerie? Is it something you think about when planning your outfits?
