What is underwear to you? Is it very important? Or just another layer of clothing?
For me, it’s an important part of my daily outfit. Sure, I have days where I just pick something quickly from my drawer… But most of the time, I just love mixing and matching my underwear and have fun with it! Especially when I’m wearing some of my favourite pieces, I feel extra confident. It’s like your little secret and no one will know! ;)
I was invited by Eveline from FitGingerEef to join her on a bloggersevent from Skiny (read her report on the event here). I was happy to tag along and get to know another brand! And especially because it’s an underwear company, I felt like this event was going to be right up my alley!
Skiny: Feel Good Underwear
But let me tell you something about the brand first. Skiny has always been known for their cotton underwear and for their bralettes and bras without underwire. Now they are a true lifestyle brand with nightwear, swimwear and loungewear for men’s, women’s and kids.
Before the event I had never heard about Skiny before, but I fear I’ve been missing out! I mean, cotton underwear? Is there anything softer, breathable and more comfortable? ;)
30 Years of Skiny: The Event
The event was a celebration of the new Spring/Summer 2017 collection. But that’s not all! There were also two highlights that would become the talk of the evening… A brand new sportswear line AND a limited fashion edition! I was super excited to discover both lines because I’m always looking for new sportswear to add to my ever growing collection ;)
New Sportswear line: SK8Y6
Skiny already has a yoga and relax line but will now take a step further with their sportswear: SK8Y6. The name stands for SK(iny) and the number 86 stands for the year they started Skiny (1986). The range is stylish and sporty at the same time! You can go work out with them or just chill in them – your choice!
The two pictures above are my two favourite outfits from the new line. I absolutely love the print in the first picture. My favourite colour to wear while working out is black – but this black and white print just gives it a little extra edge :) What I really like in the second picture is the sports bra. I love how the broad straps will ensure enough support, but is balanced out by the small band. Also, grey is my second favourite colour ;)
Limited Edition Fashion Capsule: Eve’s Garden
Lace, flower satin and cotton are the key fabrics in this line. Stylish and retro-inspired cuts celebrate the extravagant look of Eve’s Garden. When I was browsing through the racks where the brand new fashion capsule was presented, a sleeveless body immediately caught my eye… I have to confess I have a big weakness for beautiful lace bodies, whether they’re casual or bedroom-only material. It’s just one of those pieces that make me feel sexy and I absolutely adore the fine details of this piece – the waistband accentuates or imitates those desirable hourglass figures. And the open back perfectly showcases the curve of your back, which I think is so so beautiful!
I had an absolute blast at the event and I’m already looking forward to all those pretty pieces becoming available and ending up in my already overflowing underwear/lingerie drawer. But oh well ;) The most important thing is the feeling you get when wearing these pieces; and for me that’s feeling confident!
What do you think of my favourite pieces from the new collections? Is underwear important to you?
