Back in 1986, Donna Karan started th leotard sans pants trend that expanded from the runway to both high and low fashions. Fast forward to 2009 and here I am, getting ready to be the original lady gaga aka the wildly androgenous Ms. Grace Jones and I think it's funny that everything I need for the look already exists in my closet.
There’s no doubt that a leotard sans pants is sexy. The bodysuit’s real appeal lies in its streamlined simplicity. It's back with a HUGE shibang! Nicole Phelps at syle.com says "Wear it solo for sleek lines, or layer on a blazer or a pencil skirt, as Francesco Scognamiglio and Hussein Chalayan did, respectively, on their Spring catwalks. Celine’s Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney, both champions of practical chic, showed one-pieces this season. And Karan herself put Sasha Pivovarova in a sleeveless version with a breezy skirt."
So...to bodysuit or not to bodysuit? it's your perogative fashionistas. Caution to the wise: You've got to know when to walk away. Watch the scale. Know what works for you.
It's back, live it, love it, breath it. Enjoy.
