I don't remember how old I was the last time I wore a bodysuit, but it was in the nineties and I had a drawer full of them. I suddenly feel old! Bodysuits have kinda lingered in the background over the years - I purchased a Wolford bodysuit a few years ago and felt the body-hugging fit was unflattering and showing off all my imperfections (I returned it). Thankfully the 'cropped top' trend forced me to maintained a flat stomach and bodysuits are an option again. I love a turtleneck bodysuit paired with high-waisted flares or cropped trousers (high-waisted is a must). One of my favorite looks for Fall is my Tibi stretch-jersey turtleneck bodysuit and cropped stretch-jersey wide-leg pants in dark grenache - I am a bit obsessed with monochromatic looks. Channeling the seventies this season, opt for a simple turtleneck design in neutral shades paired with corduroy or denim flares and a thick heel.
