It is officially summer and whether you’re ready or not it’s time to bring out the shorts. Last week I talked about pairing your bodysuit with pants and this week it seems appropriate to take on shorts. The weather hasn’t been cooperating so I haven’t had a chance to wear my bodysuit yet, which means I can’t speak to the “nipple issue”. Though interestingly enough, one of the inspiration photos below features a blogger who is wearing a bra with her lace up bodysuit and doesn’t care that it shows. So maybe I have this whole thing wrong and you can do whatever the hell you like with your bra or no bra situation.
Either way, this week isn’t about the bodysuit as much as the shorts. Jean shorts seem to be a favorite, especially of the high-waisted variety. Showing off your waist is always nice when a bodysuit is involved, otherwise why wear something so form-fitting. Aside from that, these incredibly simple outfits are about the accessories.
1. Ray-Ban ‘Highstreet’ 46mm Sunglasses
2. Lacey Ryan Braided Leather Choker Necklace
4. Zara High Rise Denim Shorts
5. Sam Edelman Gardenia Tall Gladiator Sandals
6. Moorea Seal Double Sun Ring
8. Free People FP Collection Metal Upper Armband
Vacationing? Festival-going? Just chilling? This is the outfit you need for your summertime adventures. Cute, sexy, fun. It’s all of that. A simple black bodysuit is extremely versatile but this season wear it with denim shorts and gladiator sandals. Style appropriately for summertime-adventuring/
1. Treasure&Bond Paisley Border Bandana
2. Alexis Bittar Mini Encrusted Spike Ear Jackets
4. MANGO Textured Cotton Shorts
5. J.Crew Mini Bucket Bag In Leather
6. Michael Kors Bradshaw Watch
7. Vince Camuto Square 62mm Sunglasses
8. Marc Fisher LTD ‘Fawn’ Gladiator Block Heel Sandal
Has anyone else noticed that bandanas are back in style? I’ve seen numerous street style, blogger, and IG photos of girls wearing bandanas, either tied around the neck or Rosie the Riveter style around the head. It looks super cute with bodysuits, especially taking the place of a choker (another cute accessory that looks great with bodysuits). Accessories are the way to make an outfit like this standout, and in this case why not go retro? You already have the high-waisted dark denim shorts so a bandana fits right in. Then all you need are some more summer appropriate accessories, luxe but nothing too clunky or dark, like light leather and suede shoes and a bag. Finally, add a chic pair of sunnies and you’re ready for the day.
