Guest Voices: “Peep This Look: Retro Sailor Chic”

Boudoir shoots are such a great opportunity to shop for some gorgeous lingerie. We’re always impressed with what our clients come out with—most of our girls have serious style. We’re obsessed with this kicky retro sailor look for summer, so we transformed it into a gorgeous lingerie ensemble, perfect for a boudoir shoot!

Here’s our inspiration image:

Things we love about this look:

-the rich teal blue against the crisp white

-the black eyeliner/red lip combo

-those pops of bright orange red

Here’s a base ensemble that would work on a wide range of ladies. These pieces come in all sorts of colors so you can play with contrasting tones or neutrals suiting your skin tone.

A high-rise v-kini makes such a gorgeous silhouette – get it in Hot Teal for that smokin’ contrast we loved in the original look!

Now for the finishing touches:

We also played around with Polyvore to find some great accessories—a pair of gorgeous wedges, that hot red lipstick and a slick of black liquid eyeliner are the classic finishing touches, but you can customize it—the accessories are what really make it yours! This look would be transformed with a pair of hot thigh highs, stilettos and messy bed-head hair. Have fun with it!
