your best body

this sounds random, but i have been on a bodysuit buying rampage lately, which may or may not be partially inspired by lauren bushnell (which i cringe to admit). while they can get a bad rap for being very 80’s jazzercise, the seamless smooth look achieved when tucked into high waisted pants or shorts can’t be beat. the photos below show just how versatile a bodysuit can be — from tucked into a dressy skirt, worn under a baggy sweater, paired with a leather jacket for date night, or put beneath a blazer for the office.

the tip to keep from looking too kardashian (unless that’s the vibe you’re going for) is of course something looser over top. my favorite picks so far? a simple asos tank (which i’ve now ordered in 3 colors), a scoop back american apparel, this plunging alice and olivia, a deep double V with long sleeves (which did need a little altering from my tailor), a bright ruffled free people, and a soft j.crew knit (on sale). try one and see, i guarantee it’ll work its way into your weekly rotation and you’ll be stocking up on a few more.
