Looking for a gift for your BFF? It’s National Girlfriends Day on August 1st, so this week at Lavinia Lingerie we’re celebrating the power of female friendship.
Buying lingerie for a friend is all about the fun stuff. Forget about practical solutions and everyday underwear—these are things she can buy for herself. When it comes to gifting, think cute colors and on-trend details: lingerie as a treat.
Just arrived at Lavinia, Kinga’s triangle bra, $52, and matching tanga panties, $22, come in a gorgeous sky blue that any BFF would be happy to receive. Felina’s demi cup bra, $40, and matching thong panty, $16, is another vivid set in hot pink.
If you’re not sure about her bra size, panties make a great standalone gift. Be Wicked’s sheer lace thong, $7, is one of our best sellers and comes in a variety of shades from yellow to purple to add a splash of color to her lingerie drawer. Thoughtful accessories are another failsafe option. Lisca’s crystal wristband, $19, is adorned with Swarovski crystals; or try the brand’s sheer lace gloves, $19. Nobody ever has enough hosiery, so Be Wicked’s sheer diamond tights, $14, or lace top thigh highs, $9, would both be warmly received. Or why not pick up an Ajour eye mask in our sale?
Of course, we couldn’t talk about friendship without referencing the most iconic TV girl squad of all time—Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte from Sex and the City. The series is back in the spotlight this year as it celebrates its 20th anniversary, so what better time to spearhead a revival of Carrie’s underwear-as-outerwear?
Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie famously paired bright bra straps with camisole tops, when she wasn’t playing peek-a-boo with a black lace bra and a white button-down shirt. Get the look with this triangle bra from Addiction Nouvelle Lingerie, then gather your girls and celebrate with a cupcake (or a Cosmopolitan) or two.
