The Shape of Outerwear to Come

Over the past few months I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect bodysuit to incorporate into a “underwear-as-outerwear” look and so, when I was recently invited by Vedette Shapewear to review one of their items, the timing could not have been more perfect! While I wait patiently for my selected review to arrive (and, don’t worry, a photo review of how I style the piece will be coming up), here’s a little preview.
Shapewear as Outerwear
I would love to wear this shapewear piece with a fun animal print skirt, wedges, and an edgy leather jacket (or even a great fitted blazer) for a casual and quasi-rocker chic look that would be perfect for a dinner date or drinks. A great statement necklace would complete the look. I would also probably layer a bit of lace or a semi-sheer leopard cami under the shapewear to make it a tad more modest. 

***Also, for any Refused fans out there, my post title alludes to that band's epically awesome record The Shape of Punk to Come and I recently scored tickets to see a reunited Refused in NYC this April and so they are on my brain***

This is some adorable shapewear, most shapewear isn't so pleasant to look at so this is a welcome change. I'm checking out the site now, I need some shapewear.
