Finding the perfect coat or shoes is one thing. Finding the perfect base is another. 9 times out of 10, as a reader pointed out recently, that coat comes off for work, dinner or parties and what you’re wearing underneath quickly becomes the star of the show.
So when Tamar – founder of TUXE Bodywear and a dear friend – sent over this gorgous dot mesh bodysuit, I knew this was a piece with starpower. Show off a little bit of dot for just a hint of fun….or layer over a longline bralette and go nuts. Truth be told, the bodysuit has enough pow to dress up a turtleneck – just roll the sleeves and let the dots shine.
Here are two ways I’m rocking the dots, both a little and a lot.
Dots + Sweater Vests
I love how this sounds like a total disaster.
Top – TUXE Vanguard Bodysuit – wearing an XS
Sweater – Old, Trouve. Try this Sleeveless Tunic by Halogen.
Jacket – Fleurette Wool Stand Collar Car Coat – wearing a size 0
Jeans – AG ‘The Legging’ Ankle Jean – size 25 for reference
Shoes – VINCE. Claire d’Orsay Pump – on sale!!
Bag – My own. This clutch is similar – snag it before it’s gone!! These feather clutches look good with EVERYTHING.
Dots + Overalls
I can’t quite quit the bibs. This would be a fun (and totally unexpected) NYE look.
Top – TUXE Vanguard Bodysuit
Overalls – Paige Tavie Flare Overall – on sale!
These bodysuits have a way with transition – it’s right in their design. And this Vanguard bodysuit is a fun one. If you are feeling even more daring than I (I am, of course, talking about the SSS, or ‘soft stomach situation’), pair it with a long-line bralette, a great jacket, and wait for the applause.
