Street trend: Heavenly bodies

When it comes to looking your best, it’s what’s inside thatcounts.

That’s why we’ve fallen for the bodysuit revival — the retro underpinning that’s got sex appeal without too much reveal. 

What’s more, these clever pieces double as outerwear — whether a sexy flash of satin under a suit or some peek-a-boo lace under a shirt.

STYLE NOTES:

• USE YOUR ILLUSION:

Look for bodies with artful mesh and lace panelling that draw the eye away from problem areas.

•ADD SOME OOMPH:

Looking for a natural cleavage effect? Opt for a plunge neckline.

•BIGGER BUSTED:

Opt for an open bust design (Spanx lead the charge) to accommodate a bra.

•SMOOTH AND SLEEK:

Wearing a body con dress? Employ seam-free undercover agents like Maison Lejaby for total confidence.
