I have been dying to wear this beautiful black and white striped skirt ever since the moment I bought it a few months back. As soon as I saw it I was picturing all the great outfits I could create, but once I actually started styling it nothing seemed to work quite right for me. Most times my outfits are quite extravagant and so I decided to make this one just a little simpler (well simpler for me anyway!) by adding just a red knit turtleneck. Wearing black, white and red is such a classic combination and I knew it would be be perfect!
For the second part of my Vedette Shapewear challenge every month I have to wear my shapewear as an innerwear piece and show how it works under an outfit. I chose to wear the Ines bodysuit (click here to see the Ines) as my innerwear piece this month. This bodysuit is a fantastic shaping piece and my favorite part about it is that it is completely seamless underneath a thin knit turtleneck. I usually have the bumps from my bra straps that show through my clothing. Sometimes that can totally ruin an outfit but with this piece there is no bumps, only a completely smooth finish. This bodysuit is so simple and sweet that it could definitely be worn as a top too!
