They're Here: The Biggest Lingerie Trends of Summer 2021

Lingerie is something one should always have on deck whether you plan to show it off or not. While by nature, the overall category of lingerie is timeless, there are a few seasonal trends that pop in and out and we wanted to get the inside scoop on what the 2021 lingerie trends were to know before we enter into the hottest Hot Girl Summer ever.

"With everyone being held home for so long, now lots of us are keen to travel or even get away for a romantic weekend. Sultry slips and soft chemises will be essential for these trips. Super-soft nightwear helps you sleep better and adds a touch of opulence to your nightwear."—Dobrin

"Underwear as outerwear will have a real moment as soon as we can all go 'out out' again. Wearing a stunning bustier underneath a great blazer is a playful way to make a classic look sexy. For a more subtle look, try a lace bra under a sheer or loose fit shirt."—Dobrin
