Winter Options For That Fabulous Bodysuit

First off we must say we can not believe it is December 1st already! Where did this year go? Besides December,

We have been thinking a lot about bodysuits lately, I know weird right? This is just a how a fashionista’s brain works. However, the amazing one piece has gone to such great heights in the summertime, especially with some high-waisted shorts! However, what about the winter? And yes, we are talking about our California winter. So, maybe a few extra layers if you are on the east coast. We’ve found that bodysuits are the answer to our sartorial prayers. Not only do they stay in place when tucked into high-waisted pants and skirts, but they’re also thin enough that they don’t add any unnecessary bulk. Under pretty blouses, the extra layer will keep you oh so warm and extend the life of your favorite summery tops. We wanted to share with you, 13 ways to keep that bodysuit fresh on deck in your closet.

Give new life to your summery tops by layering a long sleeve-bodysuit underneath.

Fashion girls are all pairing their band tees with long sleeve-tops for winter.

Dress up your favorite jeans with a pretty lace bodysuit.

With a pencil skirt, this piece is super flattering.

A ribbed bodysuit is an ideal piece to tuck into high-waisted pants—it doesn’t budge.

Or this button-down option bodysuit, for some extra style points.

Give us all the mesh in the world, please! Loose-fitting trousers balance out a see-through bodysuit.

Swap out an average turtleneck for a turtleneck bodysuit, and never fuss with keeping it tucked in again.

Copy and paste this look for all your holiday party festivities.

An off-the-shoulder piece looks fun with jeans and heels.

Your next going-out outfit need a sheer piece.

Fashion girls are inspiring us to keep wearing our breezy summer tops all through the winter by layering them over a turtleneck bodysuit.

Turtlenecks again—under blouses and button-downs, they bring new life into our wardrobes (and add an extra layer of warmth).

Hope you enjoy these style options for that banging bodysuit!

Paris Fashion Week Fav

Although, I must say some of the designers on the runway this year displayed absolutely amazing pieces… Saint Laurent was the Paris Fashion Week Fav!

SAINT LAURENT

The lights went on and the stage went up, and Hedi Slimane put on yet another raucous, rocking collection, titled “Pretty Boy.” It was pure punk, edgy,  and we can’t wait for the Hedi haters and lovers to battle over this one. The runway was classic to what Paris Fashion Week is all about, Glamour and the Pretty Boy theme complimented this classic catwalk perfectly. He’s been accused of a lot of “Same-y” styles season to season, but this season none of these accusations would stand a chance. The clothes and the vibes change. Slimane just likes it skinny, short, and a little dirty whether its 80’s kids, 70’s disco, or this seasons edgy punk. Saint Laurent is well-known and respected for its thorough characteristics in black and also a point of reference for many other designers. Slimane should be applauding himself for this seasons “Pretty Boy” Punk Collection.

Slimane’s girl’s displayed a personality of party and were dressed to kill in fit-flare party dresses that ran the from polka-dotted numbers with tulle underskirts for an extra bounce to skintight animal prinkt minis barely hiding under furs in electric hues. The girls fishnets were torn and eye make up caked on to complete the ready-to-go party girl vibe.

But, these were not even our favorite styles of the collection. Yep, it gets better! For fall there were pretty girls dressed as boys in sinfully skinny cropped pants, white shirts, suspenders and slim ties- so good. To keep the pretty with the boy, Slimane added a hot fiery red lip. The double-breasted pea coats, done in leather and wool made the absolute perfect finish to this edgy pretty boy. These were mixed in with the party crew to balance sass with swag.

Slimane also showed us that he likes it rough, with zippers that unzip across a breast or way up the thigh. Clean up the makeup and men the tights and you’ve got some seriously sexy crafted clothes that sizzle with femme appeal, pretty boy or not. This is a context element. Take all of the attitude and naughty styling away and a leopard cape is opera-worthy, a stapless gown with chiffon peaks sticking straight is red carpet ready, and a binding leather mini unzipping itself to reveal contrasting fabrics beneath looks ready for a chic, exclusive after party.

The context is Slimane displayed was so simple, but if you analyze the styles and take away certain aspects the theme was crafted intelligently and intentionally. The “Pretty Boy” punk theme knocked Saint Laurent right out of the park. It was without a doubt one of our Paris Favs!
