The French are full of chic, especially their knicker drawers, and we Brits could learn a lot from that. Why not bring a hint of the boudoir to your every day with some colourful lingerie? Parisian designer Vannina Vesperini is brightening up camisoles and slips in wonderfully uplifting shades, while Stella McCartney, one designer who is all about giving women a boost, is creating her flattering bras in cheerful hues. Why be dull?

Slip, £159, camisole, £115, and shorts, £80, all Vannina Vesperini; bra, £45, Stella McCartney (available at Fenwick Bond Street).
