Don’t let the word bodysuit scare you. They have been all the rage lately and for good reason. They honestly are so versatile and can be styled a ton of different ways. BUT I know they can be intimidating to wear and you might feel self conscious wearing them but if you style them correctly I promise they will become a wardrobe staple. SO let’s talk how to style a bodysuit where you can take part in this trend while feeling comfortable yet fashion forward.
First rule when styling a bodysuit is to wear high waisted bottoms. Think high waisted jeans, high waisted shorts and high waisted skirts. Let’s face it the bodysuit is tight and fitted to the body but the high waisted bottom will conceal and smooth out your waist and really help define the upper half of your bod.
Try different styles based on your chest size. The flounce style that I’m wearing here will conceal if you are lacking in the boob area which clearly I am LOL.
And of course accessories help draw the eye to other elements in your outfit. I didn’t opt for one with this outfit but add a belt to draw the eye down. A belt with high waisted denim is one of my fav looks. So chic! And of course big bold earrings will bring the eye up to your pretty face! These earrings are only $14 (plus use code “houseofleoblog” for an additional 15% off) and they are such a statement piece!
But if you really just feel not yourself flaunting a bodysuit with nothing covering you then add a cardigan or denim jacket. Look at the bodysuit more like a fitted tank and wear something looser layered over it.
My $28 bodysuit is from The Gossip Shop and it’s butter soft! Love the flounce top, gorgeous florals and the color is so gorgeous for summer but will also transition into fall with a cozy oatmeal cardi worn over. In case you missed it I featured two other tops from The Gossip Shop in this post last week. I just adore all their sweet trending pieces! PS click here to see all the cute bodysuits that they carry.
