I love lace, and I love bodysuits. Put the two together and what you get is chic perfection! The last time I styled one was for my “Blogiversary,” when I accented a feather blazer with a lace bodysuit. In today’s look, the lace bodysuit is the statement piece.
Lace can be classy when styled tastefully – don’t let it scare you away. One of the easiest ways to tone lace down is by pairing it with matching separates, as demonstrated in today’s outfit. Do you agree that this look would be considered way racy if paired with a bright red skirt?! Stick with a monochromatic scheme to avoid the steam. This goes for your undergarments as well.
Unless you are toping your lace bodysuit with a jacket or blazer, choose a loose fitting garment for your lower half. This could come in the form of a maxi skirt, palazzo pants, or any a-line silhouette. I matched a navy blue skater skirt with mine. This ladylike shape helped balance out the sheer upper half.
Feminine details can instantly soften up an “edgy” look. In this instance, I accessorized with navy flower earrings and a bedazzled box clutch to accomplish this goal. Polishing off the look with bright pink pumps and a matching lip, not only did this hue add girly touches, but it appropriately “broke up” all of the blue. Finally, if you really want to distract from the lace, fix your hair in a new hairstyle! Stay tuned for more details about this “Half Up Faux Hawk.”
