OOTD - The Body Suit


When I had first gotten wind that the body suit was making a major comeback for Spring and Summer, my first thought was: 'oh no.' Memories of my mother wrestling me into a body suit as a child, hours at ballet classes fiddling with my uncomfortable suit - needless to say, the body suit and I have a pretty rocky past. Never one to hold a grudge, I picked up this sleek white number from Dynamite and paired it with my favourite pair of distressed boyfriend jeans.  Much to my surprise, I actually loved the look and found the whole outfit quite comfortable!  A nice feature of the bodysuit is that it keeps your lines very clean in an outfit, and saves from the dreaded 'muffin top.' Though the whole look was kept very comfortable with the boyfriend jeans, I will definitely be pairing my suit with some high waisted skinny jeans next time.  Save for an almost bathroom emergency (exercise caution when wearing a body suit on your second cup of coffee) I think that I'm loving this huge summer trend.


Bodysuit - Dynamite, Jeans - Joe's Jeans (c/o Marshalls), Overcoat - Topshop
Bag - Chloe, Shoes - Club Monaco 



I'm not one to normally choose a low neckline, but I actually like how well is accentuates my favourite Shop For Jayu layered necklace - plus, if you head over to their home page you'll see yours truly awkwardly dancing for their SS16 campaign!




What do you guys think?  Have you gotten into the body suit trend, or have childhood memories kept you away?  How do you like it paired with the boyfriend jeans?  Let me know!

  1. Bodysuits still remind me of the classic American Apparel days when everyone had the open back, extremely tight ones (myself included-- haha). I need to try them out again. Maybe I'll find a newfound appreciation for them!
