I spent last week on the beach, so it felt like a shock to get back and realize that the holidays are almost upon us. An album of your boudoir shoot can make an amazing present for your significant other, but picking outfits can be hard. Most women want to be thematic without dressing up in a sexy santa suit. Today I’ve put together five festive outfits that will make you look and feel great-and not a bit of faux red velvet in sight!


This teddy is available through Bella Bella Boutique, and is the perfect holiday boudoir piece. The gold mesh will make you sparkle, and it has a nice peek-a-boo coverage that is perfect for a boudoir shoot. Once you’re done with the shoot, throw a black tank on under with and pair it with jeans and gold heels for a killer going out ensemble.

If you want a more traditional holiday look without all the cheese, this Stella McCartney set is perfect. The half cup bra oozes sex appeal while keeping you covered, and I’ve never met a suspender belt I didn’t love.

Speaking of suspender belts, this set from Hips and Curves is a great combination of modern and vintage elements. I love the black lace overlay and how the belt is set to flatter your waist and give you more coverage. You can wear this with a cami like the picture shows, or get racier and pair it with a red mesh or quarter cup bra.

I like to talk about boudoir sessions as a way to give the gift of yourself to your partner, but nothing expresses this idea so beautifully as this set from Amourouse. She makes both velvet and non-velvet versions, but I love the dressy look that the black velvet gives the bra.

To finish up, I love this gorgeous Masquerade set. The green is a nice nod to the holidays and this time of year which lets you look classy rather than thematic. Pair this set with a silk robe and you would have an amazing outfit for a boudoir session!
