The Cutest Lingerie for spring

cute spring lingerie

My good friend, Kelley Herman, is probably one of the most talented lingerie designers in the country, in my opinion, and so when I asked her to give me (and you guys!) the scoop on her top lingerie pieces for spring, I was honestly too excited for words when I saw her choices.  Admittedly, my own lingerie closet has grown by leaps and bounds (and style) since meeting Kelley back in 2009, when I first moved to LA.  So here are her top choices for spring, and why:

1. Topshop Sketch Floral Print Bralet:  “The longline bra is the new bandeau!  I like the all over lace ones for this summer but I also like the ones that look like a little cropped tops and not so much like a bra! (like this version and #4 below).  The Topshop version is nice because it comes in many sizes, so you have a better chance of getting a good fit, which is super important in any bra- even a fun novelty one.”

2. Forever21 Seamless Layering Bra: “I live in these things, especially on those super hot LA nights…and for $5 a pop, it doesn’t matter that they start falling apart after about five washes.”

3. Blackheart Lace Longline Bralette: “The Blackheart version is nice because it has a lightweight foam cup with an under-wire, so you get the modesty and support of a bra.”

4. Free People Secret Garden Lace Bra

5. Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Demi Bra: “I love this bra!  The lace band looks sexy when it peeks out of tanks, and the cups are super smooth, even under tight tees.”

6. Victoria’ Secret Lace Trim Mini Cheekster Panty: “Love this mini cheekster!  it makes your butt look so cute!  I just wish it didn’t come in all of these dorky prints…where’s the solid black?!”

Reader Question: Where can I find cheap statement necklaces?

Question: Hey Jamie,

I need help. I need retail therapy, but am not rich enough to buy as many new colorful things as will make me happy. I believe you will know the answers: where do I get inexpensive statement necklaces?!  I need a style guide- please help!


Hi “S”!

I feel your pain.  One of my fashion blogger friends, Sydne Summer, get me hooked on the costume jewelry from Forever21, especially for statement necklaces!  It would be easy to buy one of the gorgeous (or designer) $300 versions, but even easier to get THIRTY statement pieces from Forever21, for the same price.  Here are a few of my favorites (clockwise).  Happy shopping!
