Luxe Lingerie Is the New Power Red Lipstick

Fancy lingerie is usually something we think of only as we’re watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show or when mid-February rolls around and every store window seems stocked with lacy, racy things.

But that’s changing in 2019, the year of treating yourself. After all, it’s what is inside (your outerwear) that counts, right? Nothing makes you feel more grown-up and ready to take on the world than lingerie that looks and feels great. Think of it as the new power heel or a lipstick that makes you feel like you can take on the world — other people might not notice it, but damn, does it feel good to celebrate your body by springing for something pretty.

These sexy lingerie picks are a splurge, but they’re worth their weight in added self confidence.
