Manhattan Slip Dress

Lacy, flouncy, strappy, and oh-so-sexy—a flirty new lingerie set is as beloved a Valentine’s Day tradition as red roses or candy hearts (and way more fun). You want to look and feel your best on Valentine’s Day, and a sexy new set of intimates will leave you feeling like the bombshell you are.

Buying new lingerie exclusively for Valentine’s Day does pose a little problem though: just what do you do with it during the other 364 days of the year? 

Your V-Day lingerie doesn’t have to just sit in your drawer until the next time February 14th rolls around. We’ve got the guide to choosing versatile Valentine’s Day styles that you’ll turn to all year long.


#1 Fall in Love With the Manhattan Slip Dress

A sleek slip dress makes the perfect gift for you and your special someone to unwrap on Valentine’s Day. Available in elegant black or soft ivory, the Manhattan Slip Dress is both effortlessly classic and sexy. Eye-catching details include its 100% silk material and fully lined comfortable wireless cups, complete with scalloped details and flirty eyelash trim along the bust.

Wondering how to style the Manhattan Slip Dress for Valentine’s Day night? Here are a few ways to play up this piece’s timeless sex appeal:

  • Slide this weightless slip under a daring sheer dress as you head out for a Valentine’s Day cocktail and oysters (think of it as the perfect preview of the night to come).
  • Pair it with equally timeless, yet trendy accessories like a pair of thigh-high stockings, your favorite black stilettos, and a smokey eye.
  • Spending your Valentine’s night in? Layer a vintage silk robe over the Manhattan Slip Dress to assemble a slinky look. This outfit is perfect for an evening of cooking a romantic dinner together (or maybe just ordering takeout sushi—we won’t judge!).

All that said, the Manhattan Slip Dress is way too flexible to leave in your closet once Valentine’s Day is over. With its timeless shape and go-with-everything neutral tones, it’s a piece that you’ll turn to again and again—and here’s how:

  • Layer it over a T-shirt – It’s not just all those Friends reruns you’re watching—90s-inspired fashion is everywhere these days, and one of our favorite ways to wear it is by sporting the Manhattan Slip Dress over a classic white tee. Tie the whole look together with a moody dark lip and a pair of combat boots to finally fulfill that childhood dream of raiding Rachel Green’s wardrobe.1
  • Pair it with an oversized blazer – For a fit perfect for grabbing drinks with your girls or checking out the hottest new cocktail bar, layer an oversized blazer over the Manhattan Slip Dress. Try a matching ivory or black blazer for a sleek, monochromatic outfit, or opt for a tweed blazer for a vintage look.
  • Bundle up with a sweater – Work a little wardrobe magic by transforming your Manhattan Slip Dress from a classic little black dress into an effortlessly matchable skirt. Layer one of your favorite chunky knits over it for an outfit that looks just like a sweater and a mini skirt. Finish it off with a pair of sheer tights and boots for a flirty look perfect for a wintery night out.

Looking for a classic lingerie set that’s as dreamy as it is sexy? The Coquette Caraco is your perfect match this Valentine’s Day. Made from delicate white lace complete with alluring floral details, this sweet, sheer top will have you feeling your flirtiest.

This matching lingerie look makes for the perfect little surprise for you and your lover to enjoy on Valentine’s Day. You’ll swoon over this sweet set all year, however. Whether you opt for the Coquette Briefs or the Oh So Sweet Thong, these two pieces make for both a sexy Valentine’s Day surprise and easy-to-wear, comfortable panties in a classic neutral white to slip under any everyday outfit.

Take the Coquette Caraco from Valentine’s day to the everyday by wearing it as a babydoll top over a pair of your favorite wide-legged blue jeans. The floral lace gives it a vintage boudoir look, while its ruffled straps and swinging shape keep it feeling fresh and feminine. Pair it with a sheer berry lip, black ankle boots, and a matching lacy white bra like the Coquette Bra (or no bra, if you’re feeling especially daring!) for a perfect date night look.

#3 Get Neutral with the Manhattan Bra and Briefs

Looking for pieces that are sexy enough for your V-Day festivities while still simple enough to be worn in your day-to-day life? Ordinary, everyday underwear doesn’t have to be boring—it can be both hot enough to wow on Valentine’s Day and versatile and reliable enough to turn to again and again.

The Manhattan Bra and the Manhattan Briefs are your new soulmates for sexy yet sturdy pieces that you’ll love year-round. Made of 100% silk with lightweight tulle for stretch and comfort, this vintage-inspired set is equal parts timeless and seductive, offering medium coverage and unmatched support to leave you looking and feeling your best on the daily. Available in ivory or black, these pieces pair with just about everything in your closet and can go just about anywhere.

Looking to spice this matching set up for a romantic night? Here are a few ways to take it from everyday to elegant:

  • Add a bold red lip for a vampy look, or try a shiny gloss for a flirty pout.
  • Slip on your go-to sexy shoe (whether it’s sky-high heels or your favorite boots).
  • Spritz on a flirty perfume or something with special significance to you and your partner, like the fragrance you wore on your first date or your wedding day.

#4 Layer Away with the Demi Bodysuit

Looking for a one-of-a-kind piece sure to stun this Valentine’s Day? The Bliss Demi Bodysuit is guaranteed to wow when you reveal it to your special someone on a romantic evening. With scalloped lace details along the cups and the bottom, easy-to-adjust shoulder and back straps, and a fully lined interior, you won’t want to leave this piece behind after February 14th.

With their burlesque-inspired styling and effortlessly sexy silhouette, corset tops and bustiers are everywhere these days as they head out of your lingerie drawer and onto the runway.2 With its shaping and sculpting fit and corsetry-influenced ribbed design, the Bliss Demi Bodysuit is the perfect way to get in on this trend that pairs romantic vintage with modern sex appeal.

How do you style the Bliss Demi Bodysuit? Here are a few of our favorite ways:

  • Pair it with low-rise jeans for a flirty flash of the lace panels along the high-cut hem.
  • Wear it with a pair of high-rise, wide-legged black trousers for a monochromatic and moody look.
  • Layer it under a silky midi skirt and a cropped leather moto jacket for an outfit that’s delicately feminine with a little bit of edge.

#5 Make Every Day Valentine’s Day with the Dainty Red Bra and Thong

Who says you need to save your most glamorous lingerie for Valentine’s Day? With its fiery red lace, the Dainty Bra and the matching thong make for the perfect sexy set for celebrating love and passion all year round.

Featuring floral embroidered lace with a hand-cut scalloped trim, this dynamic duo makes for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to share with your loved one. The bright red shade is perfect for V-Day, but don’t be afraid to get a little fiery even after February 14 is long gone! With its show-stopping color and flirty lace details, this set works for any occasion, including:

  • Anniversaries – If Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, anniversaries are a close second. Remind your partner of just how loved they are with this blazing hot duo.
