Fall Lingerie Trends: In Stores or Coming Soon

  |   By Holly Jackson

I stopped doing formal lingerie trade show coverage a few years ago for reasons that aren’t exactly a secret: much of the stock at shows like Curve looks pretty much the same.

Lingerie trends have become less exciting over the past few years, and color palettes have evolved to focus on nothing but the most basic options. In some ways, this season is no exception. You’ll see a lot of basic continuity colors, sometimes aided by pops of navy blue or burgundy.

However, even in slower seasons, there are always pieces that stand out from the pack. Today I’m highlighting some of my favorite pieces that take Fall lingerie trends and elevate them to something truly unique.

Lace and Embroidery:

One of my favorite ongoing trends is the use of detailed embroideries, appliqués and beading to create truly standout pieces at reasonable prices. This Dolores Bralette by Hanky Panky caught my eye months ago when I saw it in a preview post, so I’m glad that it’s finally available. The Ziegfeld Follies inspiration is immediately evident in the design, and the use of embroidery is impeccable.

This Wild Strawberry bralette by Mimi Holliday is fun and flirty, while still staying faithful to the brand. I love the brilliant use of beige mesh to create a sheer illusion, as well as the contrasting silk band and straps.

The Bijou bra by Elomi has quickly become the larger cup version of Freya’s great Deco bra, which makes it worth trying if you haven’t already. I love that Elomi is now offering this dressed up longline version as well, for those of us who love the shape of the Bijou but also want to pick up a more retro-inspired version.

Navy Blue:

Navy blue has been everywhere lately, which I love! It’s a chic alternative to basic black lingerie, with all of the same benefits. I’m particularly fond of florals that use navy as a base, providing bright pops of color that still stay appropriate to the autumn season.

I have this Amelie in another colorway, and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful sets that I own. It’s comfortable, supportive and has some great textural details that make it feel special.

I expect that this Darcie set also pops much more in person as well, although I haven’t seen it in person. I love the beautiful fall appropriate print with the handpainted details. The last few seasons have been all about hyper-realistic photo floral prints, so it’s nice to see a big brand trying another direction this season.

Burgundy:

I unabashedly love burgundy anything, so I’m happy to see it come back as the accent color of the season. It’s showcased everywhere in all different shades, so there’s something for everyone.

The Wide Wale Wrap Top and Sleep Shorts by Only Hearts show that a great color and some textural details can make a fabulous lounge set. There’s not much to it except a great color and a classic cut, but I love the look.

Christine Lingerie out of Canada produces amazing prints and silk pieces that are real standouts in the industry. When I win the lottery and want to lounge around in comfort and style, I will buy their entire line. They’re right on trend this season with their Botanica Chemise, which showcases a burgundy and pink floral print against a white background. If you’re looking for added glamor, there’s a longer length version as well.

Like everyone else, I think the Jasmine bra by Panache is a true winner regarding fit. Unfortunately, I haven’t fallen in love with their prints over the past few seasons. This season, they’ve released it in an unusual rose pattern featuring burgundy and cream roses against a brown background. It’s vintage inspired and entertaining; I’d love to see more original prints like this by bigger brands like Panache.

Whites/Grey/Cream/Beige:

While continuity colors are always available, they’re also especially trendy this season. Continuity releases used to be where boring bras go to die, but there are some stunners this season, and that proves these colors don’t have to be boring.

This Nouvel Emoi Amande half cup bra by Huit is a dressed up version of your basic beige bra. I’ve been particularly into bras with sleeves lately, so this lacy version is right up my alley.

Elila has rapidly become one of my favorite bra brands, so I’m thrilled to see them finally branching out into fashion bras now that their basics line has done so well. This pinstripe floral bra reminds me of mobsters and their glamorous girlfriends in Old Hollywood movies. It’s definitely on my personal lingerie wishlist.
