Wolford & Kriss Soonik: Chic Lounging
8th December 2012
To mark the three year anniversary of StyleOnTheCouch there is a new look for the blog. I’ve been so happy to see my little labour of love grow over the past years and I’m thankful for each and every visit, like and exchange of comments. Thank you, Blog Reader!
In this post I wanted to focus on two of my favourite items of clothing in another of my innerwear outerwear features. The bodysuit is a style I adore for its simplicity and versatility – it can be super chic in black, stunning in white and incredibly eye-catching with sparkle, print and colour. I often hound pinterest for bodysuit inspiration and some of my favourite pins are below. I’m wearing my new long-sleeved, high cut bodysuit by Kriss Soonik in this post:
Bodysuits can be worn under jeans; they look great with a pencil or a flared skirt or on their own. This version here is pretty high cut on the leg but I find that style very comfortable to wear and it gives a seamless shape underneath a more fitted skirt or trouser. Having said that, there is a reason I am ‘perched’ on the leather chair in this post!
My bodysuit icons are Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face, Julie Newmar (Catwoman in the original Batman TV series) and of course Jennifer Beals in Flashdance.
Wolford is a brand that provide all the essentials for your wardrobe. A premium hosiery label, I think their legwear is worth every penny – these Marilyn stay-up stockings are indeed the perfect stocking filler for Christmas. Wolford now focus on five product areas: legwear, ready-to-wear, lingerie, swimwear and accessories, but it is in hosiery I think they excel. I breathe a sharp intake of breath when I put these hold-ups on lest I accidentally put a finger or toe through them, but so far so good! I love these underneath a little black dress with some fit and flare – it transforms the look of the outfit completely.
If these tights don’t give your legs the wow factor, then I don’t know what will.
