Leotard, body, bodysuit, whatever you want to call yours – there’s no missing it’s a must have item this season. And lucky for us, many bodysuits have stood the vintage test of time allowing us to reach beyond high street styles and marvel over lace, mesh, glitter and velvet creations dating back to the 80s and 90s.

The appeal of the bodysuit is simple. It’s an item that streamlines your silhouette, emphasises the curve of your waist, looks great with pair of high waisted jeans (something you probably already own) and comes in all shapes and styles, which is lucky…because so do bodies! We love daring plunge backs, off the shoulder drops and turtle necks designs.

Choose a V neck plunge bodysuit with a high neck velvet choker for a sleek bond girl look. For a casual daytime feel, combine your body with a pair of mom jeans where the tight fitted top half contrasts with the loose fitting bottom.

This outfit is the perfect Autumnal evening get-up. We’ve gone for a glitzy rock look and combined a hint of sparkle with a gold 70s chain print shirt, chunky chelsea Docs and Levi’s hotpants. Pair with fishnet tights if you’re feeling daring.
