Underwear Trends to Watch in 2019

Underwear is subject to fads and fashions, just as regular clothing is, and with 2019 almost upon us, we’ve trawled the online fashion scene to unearth the most beautiful underwear styles to look out for when next year comes around.

If you’re thinking of refreshing your underwear drawer and looking for inspiration, or you’re curious and want to get your head around the latest lingerie trends that will soon be sweeping the globe, take a look at our top underwear trends to watch in 2019.

Classic & Coloured Lace

It’s been the favourite for centuries, so why would lace suddenly cease to be popular in 2019? Beautiful, delicate and oh-so feminine, lace is the classic go-to underwear style that will never go out of fashion.

Whether you’re donning a supremely comfy pure cotton lace bra when you feel like treating yourself; or you’re embracing your sexuality and dressing up for that special someone, you’ll never go wrong with timelessly romantic lace lingerie.

Choose faded pastels in cornflower blue, dusty rose and palest peach to add a splash of colour to this vintage-inspired underwear look.


Bohemian vibes are here to stay, and along with the trend comes the laid back elegance of festival-inspired underwear. This look combines an earthy colour scheme with stylish details like ribbons, brocade, jacquards, beading and a combination of natural fibres like cotton, linen and silk.

Choose contrasting patterns, ethnic stripes and primary colours - the more detail the better. And look for knots, tassels, fringing, strings and embroidery. Bohemian-inspired underwear is romantic and playful, yet down-to-earth, and adds a touch of summer to your style - even in the depths of winter.

Plush & Velvety

Velvet and velour underwear is set to be big next year. It’s warm, textured finish adds a sense of comfortable luxury to your underwear set, and is the perfect way to make you feel special when you’re in the bedroom.

Opt for rich, regal shades of velvet like burgundy, peacock blue and deep violet; or contrast the classic look by choosing bold, contemporary shades like lime green. However you choose to wear it, you can’t go wrong with velvet.

Au Natural Nudes

Another one to watch, nude underwear in a wide range of different tones is set to make waves on the underwear scene next year. Inspired by fashion icons like the Kardashians, the craving for au natural nudes reflects a society who is coming to terms with natural bodies. Slip into an effortless sensual and discrete set of nude underwear, and embrace your shape with pride.

With nudes all the rage, we expect to see a rainbow of different hues becoming available, so you can find the perfect one to match your skin tone.

Bubblegum Pop

The colours and textures of bubblegum pop undies are bold and spirited, and set to make a big impact in 2019. Choose bright pinks, sky blues and canary yellows for your underwear drawer. The more playful and eye-catching the better: as well as sugary, retro-inspired colours, choose bras and pants with a patent sheen a-la old-school Katy Perry, and instantly inject a little fun and colour to your lingerie look.

Athleisure Chic

Lingerie meets sportswear with this inimitable trend that isn’t going anywhere soon. Athleisure fashion reflects our infatuation with all things sporty and to do with wellbeing - and the best thing about it? It’s super comfortable!

To get the athleisure chic look, choose 90’s-inspired lingerie with an assortment of different fabrics and textures; soft, elasticated bra bands; bold graphics and mesh panels. Sexy yet practical, playful yet sophisticated, sports-inspired lingerie is here to stay and we’re super happy about it./p>

Sheer & Sensual

You can’t go wrong with sheer lingerie: it’s suggestively sensual, yet elegant and refined at the same time. Whether you opt for an all-over matching sheer set, a simple sheer bra with lace detailing, or you’re in the mood for more seductive vibes with layered dark stripes and buckles - however you choose to wear sheer undies, you’re sure to look and feel amazing.

As well as gorgeous to look at, high quality sheers and supremely comfortable too: transparency is truly the new black.
