In Central and South America, it’s a tradition to buy new underwear for New Year’s Eve. In Brazil, they wear different colors depending on what they’re wishing for, in Mexico they wear red, and in Buenos Aires a shopkeeper told me that girlfriends sometimes give each other new pink underwear for luck. I love this, the idea of having something pretty just for yourself as a fresh start.
I’ve been collecting images of vintage lingerie on Pinterest for a while. I love silk, tap pants, and slips with patterns. Underwear used to be so much prettier and more functional than it is now. Have a look:
What are your New Year’s traditions?
