THREE CHIC WAYS TO WEAR BODYCON
By Caroline Ferry, September 4, 2018
Bodycon is no longer just reserved for the big-night-outers. No no, the trend for tighter-than-tight threads is back and we’ve found some pretty breezy ways to wear them for FW18. And yes, there’s even a jeans and sneaks option in there too.
If you’re so excited to be reunited with your jeans after one helluva long hot summer fear not, there’s still a bodycon for you. Switch out your trusty tee for a bold printed crop top or sports bra to dip your toe into the trend. Add those all-important chunky dad sneakers for extra FW18 style points.
The new-season way to wear your LBD? Add the most extra, well, extras. Go full '80s with a cropped puffer jacket (also doubles as a pillow for the night bus home, bonus), then mix and match animal prints with a python-print power purse and ladylike leopard slingbacks. Keep the look the right side of ’86 by going '90s with your glam — bronze and golden tones only.
If a glam night out is in the cards (always), then may we introduce our favorite skin-tight animal print to play with — the tiger. The silhouette here is très '80s, so add '90s footwear and some 2000s accessories — hello chainmail my old friend — for a surprisingly FW18 vibe.
