There’s nothing more exciting than unwrapping a beautiful new piece of lingerie – except if that lingerie is also perfectly on trend and fresh off the pages of your favorite catalogue.
That’s right. The fashionistas have weighed in, and there are some stunning boudoir lingerie trends ahead for 2022.
Bright colors. Bold patterns. Modern trims. Vintage details. And endless opportunities to turn up the sexy.
That’s why we wanted to share the five boudoir lingerie trends we’re unwrapping in 2022.
A Sign Of The Times
After a tough 18 months, it seems we’re all craving more comfort and joy as we get ready to leave the past behind us.
In the fashion world, that means we can expect ultra-soft fabrics and luxury design – for lingerie trends we can all get behind.
You see, the pandemic introduced us to the indulgence of elevated loungewear, or comfortable attire that’s nice enough to wear in our daily lives without looking dressed-down. And the results are in: We’re not giving up comfort in 2022.
Instead, we’re carrying our love of comfort forward and complementing it with fresh color palettes that inspire positivity and confidence, too.
When it comes to 2022 lingerie trends, we can expect more modern and luxurious fabrics, some nostalgic design details from bygone eras, and lots of bold colors and patterns that make us feel young and alive, according to Tiffany Hill Studio, a high-fashion trend and forecasting studio.
So if you’re looking for a sexy update to your lingerie wardrobe, then we recommend you start here.
5 Boudoir Lingerie Trends For 2022
1. Body Positivity
Recently, the biggest trend to influence our bodies and our minds has had nothing to do with clothing at all. In fact, our first trend is all about the body positivity movement that started in 2012 and regained momentum in the past 18 months.
Perfectly on trend with 2022 fashion, body positivity teaches us all to feel more comfortable, confident and joyful in our skin. More importantly, it teaches us to accept all body types, especially body types that have been historically marginalized.
As fashion trends toward more comfortable, modern designs that feel good on the skin, it’s also important to recognize this parallel movement that reminds us all to feel good in our skin, as well.
2. Second-Skin Fabrics
Now, typically, we don’t think of comfort and sexiness in the same piece of clothing. In fact, we usually say: “Pain is beauty.”
Well, the new fabrics and materials coming up are determined to change our understanding of what it means to feel beautiful – because comfort and beauty will be one and the same in 2022.
You can expect gorgeously sheer and lightweight materials that look and feel like a second skin on the body. Fabric finishes will be ultra-soft and made of breathable materials that are as easy on the skin as they are on the eyes.
We’re not sacrificing quality or luxury for comfort. Instead, the fashion world is demanding it all with these modern, beautiful looks that make you feel like you’re not wearing anything at all.
3. Modern Trims
In addition to comfort, lingerie is trending toward contemporary forms and modern trims. Simple styles with luscious fabrics will be in high demand.
There’s a strong focus on simplicity and functionality, especially when it comes to underwear and daily lingerie garments. You can also expect seamless engineering for ultra-smooth lingerie pieces, and beautifully designed loungewear separates will continue to take the spotlight in 2022.
But it’s not a purely modern trend. Many designers are expected to refresh the core basics with bold new color palettes, fun statement patterns and oversized silhouettes. You might even see a level of detail that calls back to the fashion of bygone eras.
Overall, the fashion world is expecting an updated modern look with a slightly nostalgic vibe.
4. Lavish Details
Now, let’s dive into some of those beautiful details from great fashion eras of the past.
Many of us have been feeling nostalgic for pre-pandemic days and times that felt fundamentally simpler, and that’s showing up in fashion. That’s why a return to bygone eras – we have Bridgerton to thank for that – is a key trend for lingerie and intimates as we finish up the year and head into 2022.
Most of this return to antique and vintage can be found in the lavish details: elaborate Baroque-style patterns, updated Gothic lace paneling, delicate Victorian chemises and more. These hints of style add instant drama and sex appeal to otherwise clean and simple silhouettes.
5. Joyful Color Palettes
Another way to liven up these lovely modern designs is a joyful, exuberant color palette.
“As consumers seek more joy and elevated design after a dark period globally, we will see a bolder use of color and pattern that delivers a sense of hope and positivity,” according to Tiffany Hill Studio. “Spring/Summer 2022 lingerie looks are energized with new bursts of color that bring joy after a challenging year.”
You can expect hot brights such as coral, fuchsia and orange tones. But the trend goes beyond solid colors to include feminine florals, geometric shapes, original designs, and bold color pairings that are sure to lift your spirits. You might even see hand-painted or hand-drawn patterns that look like they’ve been designed by an artist, in place of the more classic patterns we’re used to.
