Capes and Bodysuits

Ahh…How it feels to be a superhero for a day! This 2015-2016 we’ve been seeing a perfect fashion trend what is called a “cape.” These cover-ups, or second-layers, are ideal replacements for a classic coat, jacket, and blazer. They have a slimming and sophisticated silhouette, and add a sort of chic and completeness to any ensemble.

Another fun trend that I wasn’t on-board with until I personally tired it on are one-piece bodysuits. Of course, there are some important pros and cons when wearing one-pieces, similar to those of a romper, but a major bodysuit plus is that they always lay flat, which is perfect when layering. This means no awkward puffing when trying to tuck a blouse in! Major win!

This particular ribbed, bikini-cut bodysuit gives you a snug fit, a soft feel and a dramatic deep V neckline with strappy details above the waist, with stay-put security below. Give this trend a try!

“Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet. Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back. Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go.”
