I’m not a fancy lingerie girl. They are for special occasions only, like a once-a-year type of deal. I much prefer basic sporty undergarments, usually out-of-the-box Calvin Klein. But basics can be boring, so — thankfully — there are designers like Victoria Bartlett of VPL (Visible Panty Line) to keep women like me happy. Bringing together lingerie and sportswear, VPL garments are comfortable yet hip, with a little bit of a vintage feel. Gorgeous lines and impeccable detailing are making me wish I had one in every colour!

$94 US at Ron Herman.

Also available in other colour combinations at Net-a-Porter(taupe/yellow) and Barneys (navy/orange/taupe) and SSense (lilac/navy).
