A Vinho Verde Summer
A chance turn in Point Loma. A tiny market in the Portuguese community center. The proprietor suggests a bottle of wine labeled “Young and Refreshing.” Back by the pool, we taste it over ice. A star is born. Love its effervescence, low alcohol content, and whisper of Portuguese terroir. A Vinho Verde summer begins.
And what to wear to feel “young and refreshing” throughout the season? A black bra under everything (or by itself). Show the casual coolness of black beneath a crisp white blouse, camisole, or pajama. Choose from an intoxicating assortment, in all its variety, from Jane’s Vanity!
Feel the breeze in Rossell England Triangles Dot Lingerie Set in black cotton tulle. Underwire-free, its charming support comes from side-boning and angled seams.
Love the Loveday London soft-cup Demetrius Leather and Lace Bralette Set in black. Too pretty, too interesting, to hide.
Bask in Camille Roucher’s exquisite Dahlia Plunge Lingerie set in sleekest black silk and lace. A masterpiece.
Plunge deeper in Valery’s Luna Black Lingerie Set. Let its extravagant floral lace and satouche detailing flaunt your curves.
Keep it simple with Madame Aime’s Palais Garnier Silk Lingerie Set. Unlined black stretch silk and demure underwire shape are so unbasic.
Dress up/dress down in the black of Lise Charmel’s Ajourage Petales Lingerie Set with shimmering guipure embroidery. Iconic.
Don’t forget Cadolle’s Argentik Soft Cup Set. The silvered black lace and matching skirted thong would be perfect under an easy summer frock.
Cheers to a sparkling black-lace summer from JV!
