THREE CHIC WAYS TO WEAR BODYCON
By Caroline Ferry, 3 September 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 AW18. 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 trainers for extra AW18 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 on the cards (always), then may we introduce our favourite skin-tight animal print to play with – the tiger. The silhouette here is très 80s, so add 90s footwear and some 00s accessories – hello chainmail my old friend – for a surprisingly AW18 vibe.
