How to style the bodysuit for summer
It’s comfy, super soft, flattering and hugs your body like a glove. Here are three ways to style this summer’s favourite piece: the bodysuit.
THE MAXI SKIRT
Remember the classic business in the front, party in the back hairdo from the ‘80s? Say hello to its beautiful bodysuit cousin! The trick for this beachy outfit is to balance the open back with a midi or maxi length skirt to keep it classy and show just the right amount of skin. Vacation vibe jewellery with sea shell details adds a nice summer touch. And don’t be afraid to colour clash! Bright red sandals paired with the burnt orange bodysuit? Why not!
THE HIGH-WAIST SHORTS
Wearing high-waist trousers often means you’re constantly adjusting the top, tucking it in and trying to get it to stay in a comfortable place. That’s why a flattering, black bodysuit is the perfect match for these breezy, graphic-patterned shorts. A black faux-leather belt with a gold buckle adds a nice finishing detail and teams great with tiny gold hoop earrings.
THE FLUID TROUSER
Not into showing lots of skin but still want to look summer-y? Opt for a light colour palette. The tight white bodysuit paired with super wide, beige trousers creates a relaxed and flattering silhouette. Style the outfit with a cream-coloured jacket tied around your waist (great to have at hand when the temperature falls after sunset) and a colour-popping straw bag.
