Say what you will about Victoria’s Secret models — those girls know how to be comfortable in their skivvies. Former NYLON Creative Director and perennial Angel Helena Christensen recently launched a lingerie line for UK brand Triumph, and has a few tips for her customers on how to rock the barely-there look, even if you’re not doing it in front of an audience of millions.
“Many women hold themselves back from colours beyond black and nude as they don’t think they’ll look good on them,” she says. “I think colored lingerie is brilliant.” She also recommends keeping an eye out for quality straps, and not being afraid to show them off. And morning rituals are apparently important:
“It may sound over the top, but try lighting a candle in the morning while getting ready, whether you have five minutes or 50 minutes. Even if you can only manage it once a week, there’s something about the scent and the low flickering light that’s good for early starts. It means that, whatever else happens in the day, at least you had a nice beginning.”
We thought our combo of dim lighting and really sucking it in were working swimmingly, but hey, we’re not against trying something new.
