Hello beautiful people!
I’m sharing some more style love today from both the mainstream and equestrian angle. The common denominator of this post…the bodysuit!
It has made it’s comeback in mainstream style. While it may look intimidating or you feel awkward about it, they are actually quite fabulous!!! For me, I have a long torso, so when I wear a button down top it is always coming untucked and makes me feel uncomfortable. It gets poofy at the bottom and all kinds of annoying. I love the look of a nice button down very much, but I rarely wear them because of those issues. When I first saw the return of the bodysuit I probably rolled my eyes, but soon realized this could actually be a great wardrobe staple for me – and my long torso!!! I can wear a nice tailored looking button down that is not going to come untucked. It is just an extra bonus that one of my favorite brands is apart of this comeback. These bodysuits from J. Crew are my favorite!!!
Just for fun – here are my hands down favorites in denim.
For my equestrians – WEF provides a plethora of opportunities to see the latest and greatest in equestrian fashion and tack. Much to my delight, the bodysuit has come onto the equestrian scene as well.
I was walking on Hunter Hill the other day as I often do and a newly added vendor caught my eye – and I see bodysuits!!! For equestrians!! I was thrilled. I stopped in to meet the creators of Free X Rein. Both are riders and have a passion for great style and design. They have a collection of body suits and also breeches. The bodysuits come in a beautiful competition style – the Elite, 1/4 zip – The Sportfit, and a great mock neck, the Moto, with zipper details at the cuff and collar. I opted to try the Moto first. I was really happy with my choice! It is comfortable and easy to wear. The closure is 3 easy snaps that are positioned so that they do not interfere when you’re riding. That is the great thing about the bodysuit as compared to a leotard or onsie that has to come off as a whole. And again, I love not having to worry about my shirt coming untucked. It really has a flattering fit and cut. You won’t even feel like you are wearing a bodysuit from the standpoint of how it feels to wear. It could easily be worn with a pair of jeans too.
Looking to try some new breeches? Free X Rein has a collection of figure sculpting breeches for competition or practise.
The Signature Ponte Riding Pant is a versatile staple that works for both equestrian sport and everyday wear. The four way stretch is designed to give the rider ultimate movement while maintaining its tailored shape. This luxurious fabric is as flattering as it is functional in and out of the barn.
The Derby Riding Pant is designed to flatter. It’s structured four way stretch makes the perfect silhouette. A mid-rise pant with a wide waistband will stabilize your body while practicing or competing.
The Elite competition shirt is going to be next on my wishlist!
I would encourage you to get one of these great bodysuits into your rotation.
