What to wear with Gossard Lingerie
Though the sun made a brief appearance last week, most of us at Gossard HQ in Nottingham are back to wearing tights to keep our legs warm. It got us thinking about our favourite ways to accessorise our Gossard lingerie both out in public and in private. We thought we’d share some of our styling tips with our lovely Gossard fans.
Stockings and Hold Ups
For a sexy yet sophisticated look, we love pairing gorgeous Gossard lingerie with stockings or hold ups. Team a set with a matching suspender or try one of our slips and wear with sheer stockings.
Our vintage inspired ranges, Retrolution and Ooh La La have been designed to emulate the classic styling of the past. To fully recreate the glamour of the 40’s and 50’s, pair your lingerie some of our favourites below.
1. Pretty Polly Nylon Lace Hold Ups
2. Aristoc Lace Top Stockings
3. Pretty Polly Everday Plus Soft Shine Stockings
4. Pretty Polly Simply Sheer Hold Ups
5. Aristoc Ultra Shine Stockings
For a fun daytime look, we love patterned tights. Sheer tights with cute designs such as polka dots or exposed seams are great for jazzing up a plain outfit. Or if you want a glamorous look that celebrities like Rihanna love but don’t want to bother with all the fuss, try a pair of on-trend suspender tights. We want to get our hands on these fun tights below.
1. Aristoc Mock Suspender Fishnet Tights
2. Pretty Polly Clover Backseam Tights
3. House of Holland for Pretty Polly Fishnet True Suspender Tights
4. Pretty Polly Over-the-Knee Secret Sock Tights
5. Pretty Polly All Over Spot Tights
Take a look at our website and the selection of Aristoc hold ups and stockings we currently have available or head over to Pretty Polly and Aristoc for more options.
What do you wear with your Gossard lingerie?
The Great Gatsby & 1920's
With the much-awaited release of Baz Luhrmanns’ film adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’ this week, we’ve come over with ‘flapper fever’ at Gossard. We can’t wait to have Leonardo Dicaprio back on our cinema screens and dare we say, we’re even more excited to witness the array of original Tiffany & Co. jewellery alongside amazing costume pieces from Catherine Martin in collaboration with Miuccia Prada.
The fashion world is obviously in a flurry with the revival of 1920’s glamour hitting our high street over the last weeks and we love it! From gorgeous art-deco hairpieces to t-bar sandals and everything in between, we’ve selected our favourite Gatsby inspired pieces to help you complete your own vintage look.
1. New Look
5. River Island
If you’re not brave enough to adopt the full 1920’s style or want to add a sense of Hollywood glamour to your bedroom why not embrace the 20’s with vintage lingerie? We’ve selected our top pieces that scream 1920’s glamour with a Gossard twist.
1. Retrolution Slip, available in Black or Blush
2. Colour Clash Half Padded Bra
3. Retrolution Half Padded Bra, available in Black or Blush
4. Retrolution Staylo Plunge Bra, available in Black or Blush
5. Felicity Cami Top & French Knicker, available soon
We recommend the Retrolution Slip to really enhance curves. With a feminine lace design and added fashion bow detail it's feminine yet sexy, it also features an inner tulip shape to flatter the figure. Or if you’re looking for something beautifully floral in pastel shades, keep an eye out for our new AW13 Felicitiy range, coming soon.
Retrolution and Colour Clash lingerie is currently available on our webiste
