Spring has finally showed her face. Tell tale signs such as little green buds and warmer temperatures are everywhere, which means it’s time to bust out your new warm weather gear. This season’s trends are cropping up in intimate apparel lines, too.
This month, we caught up with our friends at FOXERS for a look into their Spring 2017 collection and see how their popular items pair perfectly with current outwear trends.
Lace and tulle, ruffles and patchwork floral prints are popping up this season. “Nods to the Victorian era made Spring’s most covetable dresses decidedly romantic,” reports Popsugar.com in their Spring fashion coverage. The English Lavender collection, which debuted last month, features these influences, specifically lace.
“We are a primarily lace and cotton brand so it’s always nice when Lace is trending so heavily,” says founder April Spring. “I look for the softest lace and nylons along with the coziest cottons and rayons to keep FOXERS comfortable. A product that only looks pretty will be a one time purchase, but a product that is pretty and comfortable will become a favorite and repeat customer.”
“All three tops feature adjustable cotton straps in the English Lavender print.”
Lace boxer shorts, in a romantic lavender lace feature the collection’s signature print (a white background with lavender flowers) gathered waistband in 100 percent cotton. The gathered waistband, which is designed like that of a traditional boxer short, lies flat on the body.
The collection also features three lace tops—a lace bralette, a waistlength lace camisole and a hiplength lace camisole. All three tops feature adjustable cotton straps in the English Lavender print.
“The white lace pattern is very see through allowing glimpses of your swimwear to be seen and lets the air flow while you dry off.”
White lace palazzo pants also debuted last week on the Foxers website. The swim cover-ups feature all over nylon, spandex lace, and a comfy jersey cotton waistband and two jersey cotton back pockets.
“Take them on your next holiday vacation to feel comfortable and stylish over the top of your swimsuit or sexy and revealing lounging around the beach house,” says the company. “The white lace pattern is very see through allowing glimpses of your swimwear to be seen and lets the air flow while you dry off.”
Sport-inspired is still a staple this Spring. Looks that can go straight to the gym are found in FOXERS’ new English Lavender collection, too. According to Neal Munroe, E-commerce Specialist the two racer back tanks from the new line have been fairing very well. “They have a built in shelf bras and a lot of women wear them working out or for cross fit,” he says.
The lavender racer back tank top and the lavender racer back tank top with mint trim both come in an ultra soft cotton/spandex blend. Spring says these are one of the most popular items in the new collection, and the complimentary trims are new this Spring. “They make each piece more fun and interesting,” she adds.
FOXERS: a lingerie think-tank
Munroe also points to FOXERS’ Deep V T-shirts as popular items this season. Founder April Spring was the catalyst for all of the brand’s crossover items. “This really came out of April’s need,” he says. “From shopping at other places and not being able to find what she wanted. She would spend $200 on a tee shirt and it would not be made out of good material or doesn’t wash well. She’s designing things that she likes and thing she sees that no one is offering.”
“I am a think-tank when it comes to solutions for clothing and intimates,” adds Spring. “As soon as I know there’s a need or if I know there’s a possible better way, which often there is a new fit method or fabric or seam to change, I will do that to create the new best pair of FOXERS.”
The Deep V Tshirts feature a rayon/spandex blend and an ultra plunging neckline. In addition to several Deep V styles, The Even Deeper V White T-shirt with Half Sleeves recently was added to the line.
What Spring season isn’t chalk full of bridal styles? As the wedding season officially kicks off, Munroe says he sees the brand experience an uptick in sales of bridal styles. The “Mr.”, “Mrs.” and “Bride” monogrammed boxers are very popular he says. “It’s getting to the point where bridal is year round,” he says. “People are having winter weddings and fall weddings. We experience bridal sales all year.”
While the boxers make for a perfect shower or bachelorette party gift for the bride to be, Munroe says their Equestrian Tops are made for brides to wear while getting ready. Its princess collar and button down front, “make it easy to take off so you don’t have to worry about messing up your hair or make-up,” says Munroe.
Munroe adds that the tops pair perfectly with FOXERS line of skirts. “The Trellis skirt and the Light Blue Dot skirt are our bridal skirts. They were designed with our bridal print so that she can wear it before the wedding, while she’s getting ready. It’s easy to slide on and off and very comfortable.” Additionally the skirts all feature comfortable, elastic waistbands and deep pockets that can easily hold cell phones and credit cards.
