If there’s one super flattering trend we’re loving this season its the bodysuit. And, just like the jump suit simplified our lives just a little while ago, the bodysuit is cutting styling time in half and making outfits far less high-maintenance. But the bodysuit isn’t just for wearing under your clothes any more, nope these days the bodysuit is now interchangeable with your favorite top and it’s far more comfortable to boot. When you’re wearing a bodysuit you don’t have to worry about keeping it tucked into you skirt, jeans, or anywhere else – you could say it’s heaven sent! Keep reading for tips on how to style your favourite bodysuit.
The bodysuit really is a one-piece wonder – it slims, defines your curves, and doesn’t add bulk under your hip-hugging jeans, skirts, or pants. It’s also perfect for any occasion and is a must-wear item when you want a sleek, smooth silhouette without bunching or gathering. Take a nod from the 70s and pair your bodysuit with high-waist jeans that hug your hips and bum; get ready for a hot date by slipping an A-line skirt over your fitted bustier-style bodysuit; and for something more sophisticated opt for a ‘blouse-style’ bodysuit under a pencil skirt. Kim Kardashian paired her white V-neck bodysuit skinny jeans and gold high heels to create a look that’s ready to go from day to night and rocked a more casual vibe when she teamed a tank-style bodysuit with a midi pencil skirt and white pumps.
We love the range of bodysuits from lingerie producer Wolford. The elegant Clair String Body with lace neckline detail is perfect as underwear or outerwear; the Tulle Drape String Body offers two layers of overlapping tulle panels and a deep-V look for special occasions and a daytime look; and the Abby String Body in black or white boasts sparkling Swarovski detail on the neckline is ideal for a breathtaking evening look. All three bodysuits and much more are available from Woflord, Level 6 Hyde Park Shopping Centre Johannesburg.
