Red has a lasting appeal for intimates, especially for this day. Go for a classic deep red infused with a hint of blue or go a bit brighter with an orange-red tone. You can also mix a hint of carnation into your colour palette.

No matter which tone you try – it’ll be Valentine ready. Oh, and don’t forget the lace. Red lace, even just a hint of it, is universally sexy and classic (for any occasion).
