WOMEN'S HOLIDAY STYLE GUIDE 2018
How to dress up and down with a bodysuit and a pair of earrings
“Bodysuits make for an alluring component to a holiday outfit because they are fitted and show off your shape,” says New York City and Silicon Valley-based stylist Joseph Rosenfeld.
Mix and match them with other pieces in your wardrobe for various party looks—and streamline your holiday travel packing by bringing multiple bottoms for one bodysuit. Use the earrings to add a fancy feel to anything in your suitcase.
Ahead, four pairings to get you started.
Velvet + Tassels ALIX DYER VELVET BODYSUIT
Show off athletic shoulders with this racer-cut neckline. A deep merlot velvet fabric is holiday-appropriate and on this season’s trend toward lush textures. “On bottom, you could wear a cool vintage high-waisted jean or a high-waisted silk palazzo pant,” says Tiffany Gifford, a Nashville-based stylist.
...& OSCAR DE LA RENTA METALLIC SHORT TASSEL EARRINGS
Keep things upscale with these beaded tassel earrings with just a glimmer of glitter. When you’re off-duty, use them to elevate a simple jeans-and-t-shirt outfit.
Sporty + Studs NIKE CITY READY BODYSUIT
Stash this cutout bodysuit in your weekend bag as a outfit option that can see you through workouts and nights out. Pull leggings over it for a quick HIIT circuit, and for wear outside the gym, try layering a lace bralette underneath and a shiny skirt on bottom.
...& SOPHIE RATNER 14K GOLD DIAMOND EARRINGS
These action-friendly studs are petite enough to pose no risk of snagging on equipment or your workout gear, but will add interest to any outfit—active or otherwise.
Asymmetrical + Architectural MARIKA VERA PAULA BODYSUIT
A hit of shine feels festive, and loose draping is both flattering and comfortable. Wear it with a pair of tailored trousers and pointy-toed heels for a polished ensemble.
...& ANA KHOURI LILY 18-KARAT GOLD PEARL EARRING
Balance out a one-shoulder style with a statement earring meant to be worn only on one side. Place the earring on the same side as your bare shoulder for maximum impact.
Bell Sleeves + Hoops CAROLINE CONSTAS BELL SLEEVE BODYSUIT
Voluminous sleeves and fabric with a sheen make this bodysuit party-worthy. Wear it to all the events on your calendar with anything from slim black pants to a suede skirt.
...& JENNIFER FISHER SKINNY GOLD-PLATED HOOP EARRINGS
Keep the 70s vibe going with these simple hoops that add a touch of understated glamour to any look.
