Bed Time: Six Lingerie Inspired Picks Under $250

-------

Gone Country

-------

After several seasons of hard-as-nails urban warriors, Spring‘s sudden shift to rustic, countrified dressing was a welcome sight. Sure, we love our leather body-con minis, but there’s irresistible romance to Christopher Kane‘s picnic-blanket gingham and Chanel‘s haute farmwear. The sheer sleeves and lace details on this peasant top from GEM make it just the thing for a low-key date night. Click the image to shop.

Winter Wonder

-------

There’s Victoria Beckham and there’s The Row, and we’re hoping for big things from Sarah Jessica Parker at Halston Heritage, but aside from those collections, when it comes to celebrity clothing lines, expectations are generally low. So we were surprised to discover this dress from Nicole Richie‘s Winter Kate label. The printed kimono style reminds us of Richie’s own boho vibe, and we imagine the gently draped waist is flattering whether you’re a sylph like Vanessa Traina (pictured) or not. The dress is on pre-order now, and we don’t suggest waiting; something tells us Winter Kate will be a must come spring. Click the image to shop.

Vested Interest

-------


Maybe it’s the economy, but we counted a lot more fur vests than fur coats at the pre-fall collections. Seeing as how winter doesn’t officially end until late March, there’s really no reason not to try out this trend now. We love this shaggy faux number for its simple shape and longer cut, not to mention its recession-friendly price. Click the image to shop.

We Heart Luella

-------

2009 wasn’t the kindest year to designers, but we were particularly sad to see Luella Bartley‘s beloved and oh-so-Brit label lose its financial backing. Her sixties-inspired Spring 2010 collection won’t make it to stores, but we found an almost perfect stand-in for her girlish dresses. This gingham number, complete with a heart cutout in back, might not be as sweet as a party frock from Luella herself, but at only $54 it’s impossible to pass up. Click the image to shop.
