Simple, Sophisticated, and Seductive: This Bodysuit is Everything

Don’t you just love it when things you love become trendy? The options become plentiful allowing you to be particularly discerning in your choices. When I spotted the Venus long sleeve lace up bodysuit (shop it here for $39), I knew it would be the perfect occasion top for fall. And, it is!

The bodysuit is a simple lace up style that packs a lot of punch. It’s sophisticated in all black with long sleeves and a high neck. That lace up detail in the front though? It’s totally sexy! I’m wearing it today with high-rise black jeans. To dress it up, I would rock it with a long, flowy bottom. Hmmm…I think I might wear it like that for an upcoming fashion show, so stay tuned for that.

This jumpsuit has a beautiful open back with a key hole closure at the neck. I was so smitten by the lace up front that I forgot to capture the stunning back. By the way, this bodysuit fits true to size. For reference, I’m wearing a size small.
