It’s classic, it’s effortless, and it’s the reigning colour combination. Black and white is a go-to look when you want to look chic without an expert stylist’s eye for putting things together. Just as well, an all black and all white ensemble can be sexy, edgy, professional, and/or just classically brilliant. Take a look at any runway season in the past few years, and you’ll see that monochrome and duo-chrome maintained a strong presence, despite its simplicity. Playing with texture and even pattern is the way to make such a simple staple combination work in a personable and creative way.

We were inspired to take this trend and apply it to your Lingerie wardrobe. With a great selection of black and white lingerie, we’re going to help you find the black and white to go duo-chrome underneath!
Beauty Full Basics Underwired Balconette Bra by Triumph Lingerie and Beauty Full Basics Icon Hipster by Triumph Lingerie
A refreshingly modern set with gorgeous semi-sheer Lace pieces, this cohesive bra and panty are part of the delicately sexy Beauty Full collection. The balconette bra is a modern silhouette that offers pretty decolletage and nice lift, with small semi-sheer detail along the cups. The hips of the hipster panty are surrounded by floral lace, with a white waistband with lots of stretch. The contrast of the white and black adds some dimension to this set. You’ll look like a model straight out of a catalogue in the Beauty Full Basics bra and panty as they are just so lovely and modern.
Florence Lacy Balcony Bra by Curvy Kate and Elissa Lace Brazilian Thong by Affinitas Parfait
We put this combination of black and white together with a central focus on complementing lace. The fullness of the cups in this bra secure a full bust, with a come-hither peek of floral patterned mesh lace detail. Thick straps also lift a fuller bust and little buttons and bows add to its femininity. We paired this bra with a soft little Lace Brazilian Thong, which offers a little more coverage in the back than a regular thong. Pretty little lace panels on the hips complement the small amount of lace on the bra, as does a little bow in the centre.
Vintage Shapewear Molded Grenier Bra by Grenier Lingerie and Stacy Brief With Lace Trim by Arianne Lingerie
Here we’re going for a vintage and romantic look perfect for the pin-up or 50s inspired girl. The seamless, moulded cupped bra with nude underlay is seductive and sexy, with white floral embroidery along the wings. Paired with this sultry bra is an equally sultry high cut panty, with asymmetrical lace panels for a little peek-a-boo. This brief is sexy while comfortable, and universally flattering. All you need is a red lip and you’re a vamped vintage bombshell!
Pretty Pleasure Longline Strapless Bra by Blush Lingerie and Pretty Pleasure Retro Brief by Blush Lingerie
Here is a black and white patterned set to go duo-chrome and have fun. You can attach and detach straps to the longline bra, a trending style that has lift in the bust and sits nicely under the bust line. The ultra high rise panty is sexy and with lacy panelling, and creates a stunningly retro look when paired with the long line bra. There are other pieces in this collection to change up your ensemble as well.
