Truth be told, the bodysuit has never been that appealing to me. I’ve always categorised it as an item that slim, early 20-somethings wear on their nights out. However, today I came across a snapshot of Lily Aldridge in a long-sleeve, lace-up one-piece worn with baggy jeans and bejeweled slides, which not only caused me to reevaluate my opinion of the piece but also reminded me of a similar ensemble worn by Emily Ratajkowski around the same time last year. Though both of these women are still undeniably tall and slender, someone like me who is 5’5” and a bit curvier can easily wear their outfit combinations.
Why I think it works: The long sleeves and relaxed jeans counteract the plunging neckline and defined waistline. Plus, the sculpted black jersey does wonders for skimming your entire torso.
