Fantasy Lingerie Looks on the Bright Side
Everything old is new again with the latest fashion trend, neon brights! Neon dominated the runways for spring/summer 2019 and it has found its way into the fashion inspired intimates brand of Fantasy Lingerie! We spoke with their colorful account executive, Josh Moradzadeh, about this eye-catching trend and how women of every size and a skin-tone can try this chic new trend.
Wearing neon colors will make you exude confidence. That’s what Moradzadeh first thinks whenever he sees someone rocking the trend. “There is some connection between someone’s wardrobe color tones and the brightness of their spirit. In color theory and psychology of color; a person’s choice of color for their outfit of the day- or even color choice of intimates is also a reflection of mood and self-expression.”
Fashion has been heavily inspired by the 90s recently and now the style has moved onto the 1980s. “With neon colors being a color trend at this moment, I think it reflects back to the ’80s of summertime fun and the electric youth,” says Moradzadeh. Think of the amazing fashion of “Material Girl” era Madonna or the outrageously fun work-out inspired looks from Jane Fonda and you’ll get the daring inspiration.
Pretty In Pink
One of the best-selling neon styles for Fantasy Lingerie is the strappy Farah set (style #B419). Moradzadeh believes the customizable nature of the Farah is what makes it so popular. “The bra and panty both feature long side-ties for a versatile look and multifunctional wear (halter neck, criss-cross tie, mid-waist wrap, etc) giving the wearer many options,” he says. Available in sizes S/M and M/L this supportive and sexy style is ideal for an exotic vacation or honeymoon.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun
Want something a little more overtly 80’s inspired? The Poppy (style #B409) is like a Flashdance floral fantasy in sizes S/M and M/L. With off the shoulder styling and purple color floral combo this top, panty, and matching choker work “really well as outerwear” adds Moradzadeh. For those summer music festivals, wear the choker and bra with a pair of high-waisted shorts for a trendy and glamorous look!
Indulge in the cool greens of summer with the sultry Katarina Longline Bra & Panty Set (style #B410 + P410). Featuring a longline underwire bra (hooray for support with style!) with a delicate floral lace overlay, this bra features adjustable (and detachable) straps with hook and eye closures. A matching high-waist panty accented in chartreuse completes this fabulous style. This style is also available in plus-size.
Sexy for Every Body ™
Plus-size customers have also been LOVING the neon trend with the best-selling Gretchen chemise (style #P406). “The black lace/dot mesh fabric contrasted against the neon pink brings a balance to color and makes it a great combo of classic and modern design,” says Moradzaeh. This style also provide garters for those who love to incorporate hosiery into their lingerie looks.
Selecting the Right Shade
For retailers and shoppers who are wary of this trend appealing to multiple skin tones, fear not! Color guru, Moradzadeh explains, “Lighter-hued neons and pastels are a wonderful alternative for customers with complexions on the fairer side. Finding the color base/undertone of a hue is necessary when finding a flattering color for your complexion. For example, cool undertones are best for fair skinned customers so something like dark purple or hot pink would work especially if you have dark hair. Being able to identify the warm and cool effects of color is important when selecting neons and bolds. A bright purple can seem a bit too strong for a medium/tan skin tone, so opting for lavender will still get a wonderful pop of color at a lower intensity!”
Fantasy Lingerie certainly has a bright future ahead with these runway-inspired looks that women of every skin tone and size can wear. Now more than ever, the runway is inspiring lingerie trends which makes sense as more and more people are wearing their lingerie as outerwear for an effortlessly chic and lux streetwear look.
