Burgundy Lace Up Bodysuit With Leatherette Jeans
Here is the second Valentine’s Day inspired outfit! You just saw the first one where I wore a pretty red dress which was quite feminine, but I think this look is more on the risque side and evening appropriate. I’m wearing another piece from Tobi, which is this gorgeous Lisbeth Lace Up Bodysuit in Burgundy Velvet with my Citizens of Humanity Rocket Leatherette Jeans in Black. I thought the two paired really nicely together as I’m always for burgundy and black, they just complement each other in every way. For my shoes, to keep the burgundy theme running, I opted for the RAYE Burgundy Heels, and then finished it off with an accessory in the form of my Gucci GG Belt in Black. I think this belt really helps tie everything together and complete the outfit. I originally had it all on without it, but when I looked in the mirror, there was something missing. I knew it was a belt and reached for this one to really add some statement to it – I love how it turned out.
Now believe it or not, this is actually my first time wearing a bodysuit. I must say, I have always been left disappointed by the fact that all the pretty, lacy tops are always a bodysuit and they weren’t ever something I was fond of as I find them to be a hassle, however I gave it a try and was actually quite surprised at how well it fits. It takes some getting used to though with the poppers since it’s like wearing a swimsuit under your jeans, but it works nicely at keeping the top tucked in and giving off a smooth silhouette. As you can see, this one is made from a burgundy velvet so it’s right up my street, but I was originally attracted to the lace up detailing at the front. I chose a size M as I didn’t want to risk it being too small, and it turned out to be the perfect size for my body.
I was experimenting with different ways of wearing it and whether or not it should be tied up or undone, but being bigger chested, it posed a few problems. I love how it looks with the lace undone as it’s neater and more sleek, but it unfortunately displays more than I bargained for, so the tied up in a bow option is a lot more modest, but not as neat. Which way do you prefer? Given how much I love this velvet bodysuit though, you’re definitely going to be seeing it again! I’m wondering what else I can style it with as I think these Leatherette jeans couldn’t be more perfect for it, but we will see! Now the big question is, do you prefer this outfit or the red dress? Happy Valentine’s Day! Lorna xx.
