This one was for the show offs. The sheer trend gave us way to showing off our favourite pieces like the Nova and Blake underneath gorgeous sheer shirts and dresses. As well as being able to wear our favourite sheer nightdresses as the classing LBD with a twist. Sheer bliss!
A statement bra or body with a jacket was the go to look for most it girls this year. A favourite amongst bloggers and us here at Bluebella. The best thing about this looks is that it works both with casual and smart outfits. It's always better to make a (Bluebella) statement.
Don't we all dream of forever being able to live our lives in pyjamas. 2016 was the year. We just couldn't get enough of the Claudia and Sephy. Perfect for a casual office look paired with jeans or the Sephy as a flowy simple dress to show off your casual wear.
We simply couldn't get enough denim in our lives in 2016 and pairing with delicate lace bodies just seemed too irresistible.
WHAT LIES BENEATH
Wearing your most provocative pieces under the most innocent of outfits makes a boring day much more exciting. even if it is just for a glimpse you know you look fabulous and you can feel it too!

84% of students have 'special' lingerie they save for dating
Eight out of ten students have 'special' lingerie they save for dating, according to a new survey. And more than two-thirds of students (68%) wear this 'occasion' lingerie when they go on a first date with a new partner.
Two-thirds of students (66%) reckon black is by far the sexiest colour for lingerie, followed by red (21%), other colours (7%) and white (5%).
The average female student owns between 16-30 pairs of knickers, picked by almost half of respondents (48%). Around one in six (15%) own between 31-45 pairs and 10% have more than 45 pairs. Just over a quarter (27%) own under 15 pairs.
The results come from a new survey of 3,290 students that we conducted with the help of Digin, who provide welcome boxes for UK students.
We found that students from Cambridge University were most likely to have special lingerie, followed by Southampton, Sussex, East Anglia and Manchester Universities.
The survey showed that 84% of students have 'special occasion' underwear whereas only 16% don't have any at all.
29% of student always wear special underwear on a first date, 39% sometimes do it and only 32% make no extra effort with lingerie when they are seeing someone new.
Our CEO Emily Bendell said: "It's great that lingerie is an important part of many students' wardrobes and 84% have 'occasion' lingerie that they save for someone special. Our key message is to wear fabulous lingerie every day for yourself to feel amazing - never save anything for best. I set up Bluebella shortly after leaving Oxford and have never looked back. We've always been particularly popular with students. I like to think that this is because I created Bluebella for the younger me. I can remember the struggle to find great lingerie when you were living on a student's income. Students want to look great and gain the inner body confidence that great lingerie can give them"
