Bottoms Up: 15 Ways to Seriously Up Your Underwear Game

A lingerie roundup right before V-day?! We know, we know. But this is not about scoring some sexy-time undergarments to, like, please your man (or woman!). It’s about turning 2/14 into an opportunity to clean out your underwear drawer and replace some of that nonsense (you know the stuff we’re talking about) with this goodness, which is as cute as it is cozy—and all of it’s made by cool, up-and-coming brands, to boot. Your bum will thank you. —erica

We are not underwear-for-V-day sort of girls, but Laura Urbinati makes us want to reconsider. —erica

In Character: Suzy Bishop

It’s pretty much guaranteed that any character Wes Anderson unleashes on the world will quickly start working the costume circuit. And while his young luvas in Moonrise Kingdom are classic cases, there’s something so endearing about the way his go-to affectations play out with tweens (are we still using that word?). Here, how to embrace your inner Suzy. —erica

The sort of Victoria Beckham dress that meshes well with winged liner and French music.

A pair of Sunday school shoesRachel Antonoff x Bass in this case.

Some damn cute Steven Alan underwear for swimming/modeling/dancing.

You wouldn’t believe all the “In Character” we have over here…

Next Level: Blue on Blue

We’re totally into black and blue. And red and blue. But really, right now, we’re seriously hot for intermingling shades of blue. Here, four ways to work ‘em. —erica

LEVEL I: Navy canvas and denim-y leather? Mmm, Waste(Twice), this bag nails it.

LEVEL II: Yes, even your underpants can get in on the fun, per VPL.

LEVEL III: This skirt serves up some work-approp color-blocking if we ever saw it. From The Row!

LEVEL IV: THESE HUES. So good! Boy. by Band of Outsiders adds a little quirk to this shirtdress with a cartoonish dog motif (that’s somehow totally grown-up).

More four-parters! Right here!

This retro-looking (but very un-granny!) lingerie line The Loved One raised money on Kickstarter—yah, next-level funding!—and now its first mini-collection is available for pre-order. Congrats! —erica
