The Dita von Teese Von Follies lingerie range debuted in 2012 and quickly attracted the attention of many women who were looking for sexy ensembles with a classy twist. An avid collector of lingerie since an early age, Dita naturally excelled at bringing amazing styles that instantly would fit modern women’s need. The new Dita von Teese Von Follies 2013 lingerie styles are no exception. The newest styles are inspired by glamorous retro pieces from the diva’s own wardrobe. Naturally, posing in the new styles is the best endorsement and the Burlesque star definitely knows it, which is why she took the task of promoting them herself.
It seems like the star’s sticking to the style principles that worked for her in the past so it’s no surprise that the Von Follies 2013 lingerie designs have definite similarities with the previous line. The star’s love for garter belts is obvious once again. In an interview with Glamour, the 40-year-old dancer explained why exactly she loves these elements:
“I just thought that was what you wore when you were old enough to wear hosiery. I equated them with old-Hollywood glamour and pinup glamour.”
Moreover, these also serve a practical purpose:“I just think they make more sense, too. Instead of dishing out a ton of money for tights only to get a hole in one leg, if you buy a garter and two or three pairs of one style of stockings, if you get a run in one, pull it off, throw it in the trash and then put on another one. When choosing a garter belt pick one with metal clips. Plastic clips don’t stay. I also like ones with six straps instead of four. Six will keep the seams of your stockings from going crooked.”
The newly released styles ooze sexiness with a hint of sophistication. There are several black pieces as it is her belief that it is an essential in every girl’s closet. Still, it doesn’t mean that the new line doesn’t feature fab colorful options which add much needed variety to a girl’s wardrobe. Feminine lace pieces with plenty of sheer details or rich jewel toned garments are just some of the new choices that the Von Follies by Dita von Teese line brought starting this month at ASOS, Debenhams, Glamuse, STYLEBOP.com and Target Australia.
