That fantastic little one-piece you got for Summer needn't be restricted to beach and pool use. One-piece swimsuits are super chic, and they make for a great fitted top, perfect fodder for Summer's flowy skirts and palazzo pants, and even the occasional miniskirt. We picked seven of our favorite one-piece suits, and styled them with minimal effort to show you how easy — and utterly chic — it is to turn your swimsuit into a fashionable bodysuit.
Nouey80 whipped up a fantastic outfit inspired by Dolce & Gabbana's Spring '10 collection. Doesn't she look amazing? I like how she styled her wild rose print skirt with a silky red leopard bodysuit. It's mismatched and marvelous.
Here's what she has on:
Lace bodysuit: Topshop
Leopard bodysuit: Vintage
Congrats to nouey80!
Is there such a thing as sparkle overkill? Nah. The fact that sequins, beads, rhinestones, crystals, and all that glitters have not left fashion for years is a testament to that. Sure, in small doses it can be sweet and pretty, but that's not how Alexander McQueen rolls. Check his bronze jewel-encrusted bodysuit as seen on Abbey Lee Kershaw in Vogue Italia. Fits like a dipped-in-gold glove — head to toe and spiked heel. Her platinum locks further illuminate the scene. If I were sporting this super sparkly bodysuit I'd be hitting the town. I'm like a moth to a flame, but you tell me: freaky or Fab?
Some you could call swimwear and some, lingerie, but there's no denying the abundance of pant-less models at the Spring 09 shows. This phenomenon might have manifested from similar examples in the Fall 08 shows or it could be an easy way to show off Spring's 'front row' shoes. The pant-less models could be making a statement about the recession (literal or metaphoric) or the designer's could have left them half-dressed so that heavy Fall-like tops didn't seem so inappropriate for Spring. Whatever the reason we're not quite sure this look will make it off the catwalk. Then again, crazier things have happened...
