“The versatility of the bodysuit is unbeatable. Thanks to the bodysuit trend rising in popularity, you can discover how to wear a bodysuit in form-fitting styles that suit your needs in tons of colors, cuts and fabrics. Scoop-neck and plunging necklines are available everywhere, but don’t forget to look for more unique lace-up, cutout and off-the-shoulder styles to stand out.Sleek, backless bodysuits pair well jeans or flowing skirts. Try contrasting skin-on-top to more fabric on the bottom to create balance in your outfit. Buy a long-sleeved turtleneck bodysuit to help summer dresses transition into autumn by pairing the look with tights, tall boots and plush sweaters. For those who dare to bare even more boldly, bodysuits are also available in leather, lace, and mesh.” – Text source:
