When bodysuits started to become a trend, I loved how flattering they were on people and I really wanted to try them out. However, I could never find one that looked like it would fit well or wasn’t too skimpy for my body type. I ended up buying this one here in this post from Madewell one day without trying it on with the thought process that since it was long sleeved, how could it go wrong? Well the V-Neck cut of it was just too deep for my chest and it’s been sitting in my closet for months. One day my friend and co-worker, Mallory, walked into the office with this adorable back swooped body suit that I had to ask about. Turns out, she had a similar problem as myself and was crafty enough to figure out that a good way to still wear the bodysuit was simply to turn it around. I went from never wearing my body suit to it being one of my favorite tops thanks to this hack!
I love how classy the high neck looks on the body suit now. Someone even complimented it the other day and said it looked like an Audrey Hepburn look the other day. I was so flattered!
A friend passed down these Madewell booties to me and they are so comfortable, I wear them all the time. Also, props for all the clothing swaps I’ve had with my friends and family. I truly get such great use out of hand me downs.
When in doubt, flip it around! Thanks Mallory for your creativity and outfit hacking!
Happy 4th of July everyone – enjoy the holiday week.
