THE ART OF STYLE: HOW TO WEAR A BODYSUIT

THE ART OF STYLE: HOW TO WEAR A BODYSUIT

 "Perennially chic and infinitely wearable, the bodysuit is a true classic that no woman’s closet should be without."

At Tatu Couture underwear as outerwear has always been at the heart of our Brand DNA with our bodysuits featuring a timeless sensibility that makes them one of our key perennial pieces. Iconic, sexy, with versatile appeal, they are the epitome of effortless style. Bodysuits have been trending for a long time, they have come a long way since the first fashion incarnation in the 1980's when Donna Karen introduced the concept of "seven easy pieces" - a wardrobe centred around the bodysuit. Now they are no longer thought of as just a piece of lingerie that is sexy to wear in the bedroom.

Over the last couple of years, bodysuits have become a must-have piece in any fashion lover’s wardrobe, and there is a bodysuit for everyone. No matter what your personal style, bodysuits are the sartorial solve for many an outfit predicament. They are perfect for achieving a fitted and seamless look that’s impossible to conceal underneath delicate fabrics like silk or body-skimming silhouettes.

If you’ve never been taken with the all-in-one piece, now’s the time to embrace it as one of your go-to looks. We’ve rounded up our 5 favourite looks to show you all the different ways you can incorporate them into your wardrobe.


DAY TO NIGHT 
A designer bodysuit boasts infinite versatility and part of what makes it so appealing is its endless possibilities; simply add a pair of wide-leg pants and team with an oversized blazer to the office then add a slick of lipstick and some killer heels for a sophisticated take on day-to-night style. 


"A silk Blouse bodysuit is a wardrobe icon for a reason – it will never date, and it offers so many styling opportunities".

DATE NIGHT
When it comes to styling a bodysuit piece for date night, accessories make the perfect accompaniment to any bodysuit: The innate sensuality of the bodysuit is undeniable and adding some Lingerie accessories will give your look an instant after-dark edge. A leather belt will add some definition to the waist, perfectly balancing the feminine and masculine elements that make this statement piece so appealing. Or why not try one of our bodysuits that comes with a detachable suspender belt so it can be worn with stockings like the Nadya Lace bodysuit for the ultimate in seduction.

LUXE ATHLEISURE
So how do you satisfy this new trend for practicality without letting your sartorial standards slip? The luxe athleisure-inspired spin on the bodysuit is the capsule wardrobe must-have. After more than a year of wearing athleisure pieces on repeat at home, comfort has become a big factor in our everyday wardrobes. Using the item as a base layer to provide contrast with loose fitting trousers or slouchy jeans will give the finished look a more laid-back feel.

You can effortlessly pull off a bodysuit for virtually any occasion as long as you pair it with the right accompanying pieces. An embellished bodysuit will be an enduring go-to for events where you want to look polished with minimal effort. Metallic shades are a trend we can expect to see continue into AW21, so the Ayako embroidered bodysuit adds just the right amount of embellishment for after dark dressing. Team with a black palazzo pant or a floor length metallic skirt and finish off with some bejewelled statement earrings.
