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!

Let us know some of your favorite pair up’s with that heavenly one piece in the comments below!

In addition to running his own label, which shows during Fashion week in Milan, de Vincenzo assists with accessories for Fendi, a job he says has deepened his love affair with leather and fur. One of the handful of young designers out of Italy to gain serious traction in the past few years, he is also among the country’s biggest rising stars. Vincenzo’s elegant minimalism is opulent fabrics and easy-to-wear neutrals. His current inspiration is Marble, particularly from his hometown, Rome. Stone is often a theme in da Vincenzo’s collections; his Spring 2012 line was influenced by the Ionic columns of ancient Olympia.

MSGM

Massimo Giorgetti is known for his exuberant prints and youthful, on-trend look. He channels his varied interests into the design process, creating clothes born of a mash-up of contemporary art and indie music considering he used be a DJ. MSGM is a patriotic endeavor as well: Giorgetti’s line is based in the designer’s native Italy-Milan, to be precise and its all Italian-made. MSGM’s aesthetic consists of kaleidoscopic florals and of-the-moment styling such as spontaneous orange furs!

You may recognize this name as the Russian beauty designed for her own label from the time she was fourteen until she turned her attention to the more grown-up Lublu Kira Plastinina. The brand has been around since 2008, but it only recently became a crossover hit in the States, attracting fashionable fans like Taylor Tomasi Hill. Plastinina’s aesthetic is girly with wild prints, knee-length dresses and skirts. Her current inspiration is late 60’s and early 70’s; bright colors for fall like orange and corals.

ROSIE ASSOULIN

She’s done internships at Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin, Adam Lippes, and Brian Reyes. Now after launching a namesake line for Resort 2014, Assoulin is going to need some interns of her own; The New York designer’s collection was one of the most buzzed-about outings of the season. Assoulin’s aesthetic resembles clean lines and architectural silhouettes; clever plays on volume; modern and ladylike. Her current inspiration is 1940’s and 50’s frocks; traditional dress of Moroccan and Kazakh men.
