Today’s outfit is simple, composed of all neutral colors and mostly older pieces. I hope some of you were able to pick up these trousers from my recent posts (last blogged here in navy)! The combination of the higher waistline + floor-grazing flare makes for a flattering silhouette that I can’t get enough of. I only wish the waist was nipped in more – got mine tailored about an inch or two for a more snug fit.

I always came across bodysuits (those blouses with leotard-like bottoms) at trendier stores and never gave them a second glance. I once thought they were a odd form of lingerie for those who like extra coverage up top (ha!)…but now that I wear more high-waisted bottoms, the purpose of bodysuits becomes a little more clear.

Two of the most common questions I get is how to tuck tops into bottoms with no bulge, and also how to keep tops securely tucked-in without coming undone. Bodysuits apparently kill both birds with one stone, as they look just like normal tops but with a secured underwear-like bottom (with crotch snaps for the restroom). My top here is very old and has slight bulging issues when tucked in, so I’ve been eying some one-pieced versions like this one. For the bodysuit wearers out there, let us know your thoughts on if they’re comfortable and practical!
