Venus, one of my brand partners, asked me recently to produce content for their “Meant to Be Seen” campaign, which highlights lingerie so fly that it ought to be shown. I embraced the opportunity to step outside of my box and try something different—the bodysuit. In my eyes, bodysuits are filled with challenges, opportunities. On one hand, bodysuits give that perfect tucked in look, but wearing them isn’t always easy. Anyway, I went all out, and I chose a super sexy lace piece to indulge in the bodysuit trend.
Bodysuit c/o | Shorts (on sale) | Oxfords (now 70% off!)
Sunglasses ($7.99) | Mac “Heroine” lipstick
Y’all, I tried on the lace bodysuit and immediately felt empowered. There’s just something special about the streamlined silhouette and the peek-a-boo details on this particular style. And, once I wore it outside, I actually enjoyed wearing it despite its challenges. Bodysuits may have won me over just like jumpsuits did before.
For now, I’m wearing the bodysuit with fluid tie-waist shorts (also see these shorts here, here, and here). I imagine dressing up this piece later with long wide-leg pants or a flowy maxi skirt. Ultimately, I think rocking less fitted items on the bottom will strike a nice balance with a sleek bodysuit.
By the way, Ive been shopping for a replacement pair of cutout oxfords since I completely wore out my old Steve Madden pair. I stumbled upon a hip style (also in other colors) from Chinese Laundry. They’re leather and metallic. They’re also 70% off right now ($29.99)! Following the suggestion of reviewers, I sized down a half size to a 7.5 (I usually wear an 8) and found my perfect fit.
Back to bodysuits. I loved today’s featured style so much that I also ordered this long-sleeve style for fall. Have you been feeling bodysuit trend?
I love to see body suits as well but the part of removing all my clothes to use the restroom, is not fun.
I hear that, Delonne. Luckily, these new bodysuits have snaps at the bottom, so you don’t actually have to take the entire bodysuit off to use the restroom. Thank goodness!
You look cute! Love the outfit.
Thanks so much, Melissa!
