It’s a common misconception that lingerie isn’t subject to fashion trends in the same way as other items such as beauty, shoes or swimwear, but that’s not the case.
Society’s approach to lingerie has evolved in recent years, thanks to lifestyle changes brought about by lockdown during the pandemic. While normal life has resumed in many areas, there are some changes that have persisted.
For example, leisurewear and comfort became extremely popular during lockdown. Now people are out and about again, we’re all ready to get dressed up to look and feel great, but there is definitely more of an emphasis on comfort. But there’s no reason we can’t have style, beauty and comfort in the same pieces.
In this article we’re going to take a look at our predictions for the upcoming lingerie trends for spring summer 2023. We have our top tips for what’s going to be on trend, and have some superb examples of this year’s most beautiful, elegant and comfortable lingerie.
Lingerie Trends 2023 - Romantic Embroidery
Elegant colours and delicate lace are integral to this 2023 prediction, resulting in romantic lingerie that is both comfortable and gorgeous. This lingerie trend embodies a combination of femininity and elegance. Typical pieces will include delicate and intricate floral embroidery which adds a touch of sophistication, while soft and comfortable fabric ensures a comfortable and sensual experience.
This beautiful balcony bra from Empriente is available in the ‘lueur turquoise’ colour; a wonderful cyan that brings out the subtle white, yellow and orange floral embroidery. This piece exemplifies the return of the underwire, without making any compromise on comfort. This bra gives you a great side support and lift, and works brilliantly as an alternative to black.
Lingerie Trends 2023 - Cobalt Blue
Blue is certainly going to be one of this season’s lingerie trends: tranquil blue has been named by consumer trend forecaster WGSN as one of the colours which will ‘encapsulate the mood of the season and align with the mindset of consumers in 2023, with a lightness and clarity that reminds the elements of air and water. Representing stillness and tranquility, that consumers will seek to counteract overwhelming emotions.’
At Caroline Randell we’re delighted to stock Aubade's Parenthese Tropicale half cup bra in vibrant electric blue. This beautiful bra features an intricate tropical leaves pattern embroidered on the cups, complimented by a floral lace across the top of the cups and the straps.
Another piece that exemplifies the cobalt blue trend is the Louise range by Empreinte, now available in 'Bleu Roi', a beautiful electric blue. This is an elegant, sophisticated and wonderfully pretty bra. Using Guipure lace and exquisite embroidery, the Louise collection from Empreinte is one of our bestsellers.
Lingerie Trends 2023 - Pinks
Pink-hued collections - everything from bright & vibrant to soft and subtle - sold well in 2022, and this trend looks set to continue this year. From high impact pinks for a sense of drama, to pretty in pink embroidered pieces that work as foundation underwear beneath any outfit, this season’s pinks allow you to be whatever you want to be.
A superb example of a beautiful pink bra is Serie Poetry Vogue’s Triangle Padded Bra in the seasonal colour 'Parrot Pink'. This is a great plunged soft bra - perfect for when you want a good support but no underwire, it goes brilliantly under a v-neckline.
Another elegant and pretty pink bra is this Never Say Never piece from Cosabella. This brand is loved for its beautiful floral patterns and innovative lace and its pieces are crafted in Italy using the highest quality materials.
This lovely longline plunge wireless bralette is comfortable, provides great shape with the help of flattering side support, and gives a very good lift.
One of our final predictions for lingerie trends in 2023 is the return of 1970s orange hues and a vibrant pop of colour. With the 70s being about individuality and representative of the huge growth of women’s rights, this vintage look is destined for a return this year.
There’s a reason 70s styles keep coming back - sometimes, when you’re looking for inspiration for the future you just need to look back and build on what went before. With inspiration from the boho chic look and the bright colours born of the disco era, 1970s orange is going to be back in a big way this year, with vibrant-coloured underwear forming a key part of every discerning 2023 lingerie collection.
Whatever your choices in 2023, our lingerie collection featuring exclusive designers and brands means that we’ll have a piece for you. We have a carefully curated range of styles, colours and fabrics to suit every occasion and taste.
