Ladies, with Valentine’s Day this month, I hope that plans to woo and spoil you are well under way. Whether you will be wined and dined, whisked away on a romantic getaway or have a cosy night in with your favourite film, make sure your the day is served with a side order of sizzle.

There are few things better than the feel of smooth, soft silk on your skin, so slip into something elegant and seductive to surprise yourself and the one you love. Indulge in some luxurious lingerie with my wish list selection of beautiful pieces that are guaranteed to make you feel like a goddess.

For something long and sleek, choose this stunning Grey Smoke nightgown from John Lewis’ own-brand collection at £99. The lace panels add a pretty twist to this sophisticated number.

What is Valentine’s Day without a splash of red? This silk and lace chemise from Somerset by Alice Temperley at £79 is just the ticket. Chic and festive, it’s the perfect Valentine’s treat. It also comes with a beautiful matching nightgown.

Independent lingerie retailer Violet’s Knickers in Welwyn GC is the best place to find lingerie with a vintage twist. Inspired by the classic pin-up girls of the 40s and 50s, its selection of retro pieces will have you feeling like a burlesque queen in no time. This long silk and lace robe at £125 is elegant on its own or with any ensemble.
