9 Lingerie Items For Fall That Will Keep You Feeling Sexy & Warm

Carine Roitfeld once told Harper's Bazaar, "I love transparency, fitted dresses, simple, feminine, beautiful lingerie," and it was possibly the most French thing I'd ever read. It's the one thing that keeps me feeling sexy, no matter the occasion, and with October coming around the corner, I had together a list of lingerie for fall. After all, when you feel sexy from the inside, you feel sexy on the outside, too.

If you know anything about me, it's that I hate being cold. I have a zero tolerance policy. I carry a jacket or sweater with me, even in 70 degree weather. So, as you can imagine, the fall and winter are tough for me — of course, the two weeks of crisp fall air are bliss, but as any New Englander knows, this little period is short. Very, very short. There's a fine line between gorgeous cold, fresh air, and just wintery, blistering hell. It happens almost over night, and you know you're completely effed. For another four months, by the way.

The one thing that keeps me going (besides a really, really warm winter coat) is some key lingerie pieces that keep me warm inside. Even though it's wintery hell outside, at least I have a piece of excitement I carry along with me. Plus, as a lover of all things Parisian, I've constantly strived to have the elegance, grace, and edginess of a French woman. And what makes them so gorgeous is their too-cool look, but also, their love for detail and the art of sexuality expressed in lingerie.

So even if you're hating the frumpy sweaters, salt-stained boots, and static that won't seem to go away, no matter what you do, if you've got a little lingerie number on underneath, you'll always feel warm and fuzzy. Check out these nine lingerie items that'll help you bear the coming months.
