What is a Bodysuit and Why Do I Want to Wear One?

Bodysuits are one-piece garments, similar to a leotard or one-piece bathing suit, that come in a range of styles from long sleeved and blousey to spaghetti strapped and skintight. They function as any shirt would (except a crop top!), but have the added benefit of tucking in seamlessly to whatever bottoms you choose to pair with it. Most bodysuits also provide tension from the shoulders to the crotch to help play up your curves, especially with low-cut necklines. Basically, they can suck you in, lift you up and work as the perfect base layer for any outfit!

How Do I Wear a Bodysuit?

Bodysuits can be worn with jeans, pants, skirts and shorts – any bottom you can think of, you can probably wear it with a bodysuit. Styling a bodysuit can range from casual to professional to glam and sexy.

When going casual with your bodysuit, think simple styles in stretchy fabrics for a grab and go look. Simple tank top bodysuits (with some fun details like an open back or lacing up the sides) look great paired with denim shorts, jogger pants or distressed jeans. Throw on some sneakers or a low block heel and you’ve got a weekend-ready look you can wear running errands, hanging with friends or heading to brunch.

When styling a professional outfit, bodysuits are a great option to keep your look sleek and tucked in all day. Their close-to-the-body silhouette also makes them perfect for layering under blazers and jackets. Some of our favorite bodysuits are business in the front, party in the back! With professional necklines and subdued colors to look chic under a blazer for work, and sexy back details to be shown off once you are out of the office, bodysuits are the ideal piece to go from desk to date night!

When you want to get dressed up, turn to the bodysuit to create a cool-girl outfit equal parts sexy and versatile. Opt for sheer mesh with strategic coverage, lace-up details, off-the-shoulder styles and plunging necklines in a variety of lush fabrics to show off when you’re going out at night. Bodysuits paired with jeans are great for heading to a bar, while leather pants or a skirt are chic options for clubs, lounges or a hot date.

Bodysuits can also function like lingerie, creating a sexy base layer to be worn under low cut tops and slouchy sweaters. These scene-stealers can work on their own too, it just depends on how much skin you want to bare!

Happy Hour: Floral Frosé –

Everything is coming up roses this summer thanks to our new favorite beverage: frosé (A.K.A frozen rosé). We thought that a chilled glass of rosé on a hot summer day couldn’t get any better, but with a few simple ingredients and a blender you can now make your favorite drink into a refreshing frozen treat!  We added a St. Germain float to this beverage for a floral flavor spin, but you can add any flavor you’d like to customize your cocktail (lemon, strawberry, peach, etc.).  Read on to get the how-to on this super simple refreshment that is as pretty as it is delicious!

 

Ingredients 

– 1 chilled bottle of your favorite rosé

– 2 oz. simple syrup (see our how-to here, and simply omit the lemon)

– St. Germain

 

Method

– Pour bottle of rosé into ice cube trays.

– Freeze for 6-8 hours or overnight. Due to the alcohol content the rosé will not freeze all the way, but will firm up to a slushy consistency.

– Pop out the frozen rosé cubes into a large blender, add 2 oz. of simple syrup, and blend on high until pureéd into a perfectly pink, slushy concoction.

– Pour into glasses and top each with a small splash of St. Germain.

– Garnish with a flower if you’re feeling fancy and enjoy immediately!
