Bodysuits have been around for awhile now and for some insane reason I had put off trying this trend. I had many concerns. Some were pretty logical I would say, like how would one go to the bathroom in a pinch? Or wouldn’t you see panty lines through your clothes? Certainly you can start to see my irrational fear of this trend and why I put it off for so long.
When I was approached by my friends at Luxington Boutique to design an outfit that could easily take you from work to an after 5 cocktail, I jumped at the idea to create an outfit with a piece of clothing that I had never tried before. Insert this amazing olive green bodysuit here.
1. Day Look: Pair a bodysuit with a dramatic wide leg pair of pants to wear to the office. The contrast of a more fitted top and loose bottom will give you a chic look that is totally office appropriate. My favorite office looks are the ones that no one else is brave enough to try but you know will get you tons of compliments. This is that look and the plus side is that it’s insanely comfortable too.

2. Night Look: I firmly believe that every woman should always have a pair of jeans, heels and lipstick on hand at any time. Car, desk drawer, etc. In order to take this bodysuit from the office to after work cocktails, I simply added these 3 things plus my favorite 2 accessories- a black bralette and a choker necklace. These latter 2 items are my favorite ways to add a little bit of edge into your look. Combined, all 5 of these items are the perfect recipe to your casual after 5 attire.

I felt inclined to tell you that I couldn’t end this post without saying that both of my initial fears of wearing a bodysuit were quickly remedied after finding out that 1) most bodysuits have an “easy-access” snap section so you can go to the bathroom without having to take the entire thing off and 2) so far everything that I have tried to wear with my bodysuit, panty lines have not been an issue.
So if you have been wanting to take the plunge on a bodysuit, I highly suggest getting one that is versatile enough to wear to work so you get the most use out of it! Luxington Boutique is the perfect one stop shop for both work wear and everything else in between so if you are in the Houston area, make sure to stop by and check them out!
